The importance of staying hydrated.
Our body is mostly made up of water. An average of 50-65% it varies on the persons body type. I’m not going to get all technical about this but to stress how important we need water, so enlighten you about this..
When you are already parched your already dehydrated. Some times when you think you are hungry you actually are probably thirsty. Try actually drinking a glass of water and see if that may help curb your hunger. When your lips are chapped that’s already a sign of dehydration.
You may think drinking ice tea, soda, energy drinks may quench your thirst but in reality it’s making you more thirsty, especially the high sugar intake on those energy drinks and the amount of caffeine too. Alcohol is another culprit.
Keeping yourself hydrated helps keep your skin supple and not so dehydrated and dry, flakey and prone to wrinkles. Some people don’t like that water is so blan, so why not add some fruits and have infused water at least your adding natural flavors with some vitamin and minerals….
Also the benefits of these infused water help with detoxing our liver, relieves bloating from my experience and also may help curb your apitite and not eat as much. Just by adding lemon into your water will alkalize your body (http://foodmatters.tv/articles-1/cheers-to-drinking-warm-lemon-water
