We can survive days without food but only 3 days without water – MAX
Water is critical to survival!
How much water is enough?
As a general rule, measure your fluid intake by your fluid output…your frequency of urination. If well hydrated once every 1 ½ to 2 hours.
On average 64 to 80 ounces (8-10 glasses) YEP!
This is the minimum. If you’re active or an athlete you will need more.
The amount of water you need will vary based on your initial level of hydration, the climate and the duration and intensity of exercise.
If you say “you’re thirsty” it’s too late. The body’s thirst response takes longer to tell your body it needs water, so it’s best to drink plenty of water before you have say it…
Be water, my friends…
