Are you drinking enough WATER?
Warning signs of dehydration: dizziness, headache, heaviness in the head, flushed skin, weakness, fatigue, dry mouth, loss of appetite.
Are you drinking half your weight, in ounces, of water? WATER is an essential nutrient that is involved in every function of the body. It transports nutrients and waste products in and out of cells. It is necessary for all digestive, absorptive, circulatory, and excretory functions, as well as the utilization of the water-soluble vitamins. Yet most people don’t think about drinking water throughout the day.
Dehydration is the leading cause of mid-day fatigue. When you are dehydrated, your body temperature increases and you lose not only water but also valuable electrolytes such as the essential minerals potassium and sodium.
Dry mouth and being thirsty is one of the last indicators of dehydration in the body. Being thirsty can be confused with hunger because both sensations are similar in the way they register in the brain. You may be reaching for food when you should be reaching for water.
Make sure you are drinking half your weight, in ounces, of water each day. If you weigh 140 lbs. you should be drinking 70 oz. of water each day.
