Our body is composed of mostly water. Water is a unique molecule that flows and can embrace other molecules and help bring them to their destination. Water is also needed in many biochemical reactions in the body. Structurally our cells and support system, what I call the fluid system, rely on water to be full and remain in place. The fluid system also carries energy.
A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK
Take your weight in pounds and multiply it by 0.67. This will determine your minimum baseline for how much water you need to drink daily. Then if you have any of the following in your diet, you need to add 8 ounces of water per serving of each food or substance to mitigate any negative or dehydrating effects from these substances. This includes coffee, alcohol, juice, cigarettes, cannabis, candy, sugar, flours. So for example, if you weigh 140 pounds, multiple this by 0.67 and get 93.8 ounces of minimum water daily. Then if you decide to have a cup of coffee, add another 8 ounces, which will total 101.8 ounces of water that day.
