#TransformYourLife: How much water should you drink?

So exactly how much water should we consume for weight loss?

The rule of thumb is eight 8oz glasses (64oz a day) however I find this measure flawed especially if you’re working out and eating clean.

My water schedule:

Upon waking up 5:15 to 5:45am – 16oz to 18oz

During exercise: I take 2 gulps of water usually after every set or every other set

After exercise: I take a couple more gulps.

All through the day: I sip every 15 to 20 minutes

Whenever an activity is not well understood there will always be people saying negative things about it. My 2 favorite

1. Drinking too much water causes water poisoning or water intoxication

2. You can drown your body organs by drinking too much water

It’s not about how much water you drink, it’s how fast you drink it. If you drink 2 liters of water in 5 minutes OFCOURSE the body will not handle that well. Drink water slowly, taking small frequest sips throughout the day.

My lifestyle, calls for being in the best shape by means of intense workouts and eating clean, requires I consume 2 gallons of water a day. By no means am I asking you to consume 2 gallons a day, but I will challenge you to drink more water and cut off other unhealthy drinks. This is especially important for anyone that works out and is looking to loose or maintain their weight.

Note: It is normal to find yourself running to the restroom more frequently than usual. Don’t panic its just your body trying to keep up with the water you’re drinking and it (the body) adjusts to this in a few days.

Did you know an adult kidney can process 15 liters of water a day??

Did you know that you can survive several weeks without food but only a few days without water?
