Health & Fitness Tip: How Much Water Should I Drink?
How Much Water Should I Drink?
Many people know they should drink more water but are at a loss as to how much they should drink. The following tips are courtesy of Dr. John Berardi, Ph.D., one of the leading performance nutritionists in the world.
Sedentary people-should drink 2 liters or 8 cups per day
Athletes- 3 liters or 12 cups per day
Athletes in hot weather- 4 liters or 16 cups per day
Some people may have a problem reaching those quantities so here are a few tips to help you out:
Drink cold water-it is more palatable, helps with mouth "feel" and ingestion
Add lemon-increases desire to drink, kills bacteria
Carry water jug-helps facilitate drinking adequately
