The Importance of Body Hydration

Drinking water is a PLUS in weight loss. Since we were kids we heard we needed to drink 8 cups of water a day.  Since then, things have changed and the number of drinking cups too. To keep your body hydrated it is as simple as diving your weight -in pounds- in half , the result is the amount of ounces we should drink.

Example: I weigh 168 pounds 
168/2 = 84
meaning that I need to drink 88 ounces (about 10 1/2 cups) to keep my body hydrated.

One nice tip:
our internal body temperature is 98 degrees Fahrenheit, when we drink cold water, our metabolism has to work, in other words, our body has to use/burn calories, using approximately 8 calories, to heat up the cold water,  helping us to lose weight. 

When we exercise, we need to increase the consumption of liquids. It is recommended to drink 8 ounces of water/liquids per every 15 minutes of exercise.
So go ahead and drink up!!
