I need more coffee! Are you sure you don’t mean water?
Many people don’t realise the importance of drinking enough water and the effect it can have on our health, eating habits and weight loss.
Yes, we all start the day with good intentions, but lack of sleep, back-to-back meetings and always on the move, what do we reach for? Caffeine…and lots of it, in whatever form!
Water is sidelined, ignored, with excuses that ‘too much will mean I’m always in the loo and I don’t have time for that’ commonplace.
But if any of these symptoms sound far too familiar, it may well be time you reconnected with your clear, uncomplicated friend:
‘I have a constant headache’
‘I feel so lethargic’
‘I can’t be bothered when I get to the gym’
‘I don’t sleep’
‘My skin’s terrible’
Have you met my friend WATER?!
Yep, often if you dig a little deeper into someone’s lifestyle, water is all too often lacking; odd when you consider that every cell, tissue and organ in our body needs water to function.
Water makes up 60% of our bodies, therefore, it’s hugely important to stay hydrated so our bodies can function.
Think about it, our body uses water to regulate our body temperature, aid digestion, transport nutrients, lubricate joints and remove waste, so if you’re failing to fuel the machine, it’s not going to work at the capacity its capable of.
So, if you’re looking for optimum performance at the gym, stay hydrated – and not just while you’re in the gym sweating and panting away, drink it all the time.
A simple change in habit will make a whole world of difference to your everyday outlook on life and better still it’s a lot cheaper than your double shot latte made with semi-skimmed milk and a whole lot healthier!
