Are you drinking enough water?


Are you drinking enough water?
Remember, thirst isn't a good predictor of your hydration status.

The sensation of being thirsty is an indication that you have already used up much of your body's available water reserve and it is now telling you that you need to replenish, in otherwords by the time you are thirsty you are already dehydrated.

If you feel thirsty, it’s too late!

It takes about TWO HOURS for anything you drink to have an effect on your body’s hydration level. By the time you feel thirsty, you are two hours behind! Drinking something even the second you realize you are thirsty means that you will still be dehydrated for at least two more hours.

In fact, most people spend a good portion of their life mildly dehydrated, so drink water frequently even if u r not thirsty may be only sips but please drink water……
