- Get at least 64 ounces of water each day. Yes, eight glasses! The proverbial eight glasses of water each day don’t have to come just from pure water — you can count water-filled produce like watermelon and oranges, coffee or tea, or soups toward your daily requirements. (Skip the sodas, though — they’re simply calorie-filled sugar or unhealthy chemicals.) If you’re working out and sweating, you’ll need even more than 64 ounces of water to keep your body properly hydrated.
- Don’t wait until you feel thirsty to drink. By the time your mouth finally feels dry, you’re already dehydrated. Keep drinking water all through the day. If your lips feel dry, that’s another sign you may need hydration — and drinking lots of water is better than any lip balm on the market.
- Minimize the amount of water you drink with your meals. To maximize your digestive fluids, it’s actually better to hydrate between meals rather than during your meal. When you drink water while you’re eating, you dilute your saliva and the stomach acids that are vital to digestion, slowing down the processing of the food you’re eating. Try to avoid drinking water right before you eat and during the first half of your meal.
- Get the cleanest water possible. Unfortunately, our tap water can be a major source of toxic chemicals that our overworked livers are required to process. A water filter will help, and a reverse osmosis filter is essential if there’s fluoride in the water where you live.
