When possible, drink more water.
Drinking a sufficient amount of water keeps your body and skin healthy, prevents diseases, and reduces existing ailments.
So how much water?
8 glasses of water a day is a common answer. However, I have always wondered two things. 1) how big should the glasses be? and 2) this general statement can not apply to everyone. Would a 100 pound woman and 250 pound man need to drink the same amount of water every day?
My favorite is drink half your body weight in ounces.
If you are a 100 pound woman, drink 50 ounces of water per day. 125 ounces for the 250 pound man.
Here is a great water calculator that accounts for your daily exercise and other factors (altitude, pregnant/nursing, etc.).
One of my Road Trip Diet standard practices is to visit grocery stores and buy a gallon of water with my produce.
That is Drink Tip #1. Drink More Water. What do you think?
