Five reasons to drink water now is our talk for today.The benefits of drinking water are amazing. Because our bodies are made up of 55-65%, water is the only drink that we must have to survive.I’m sure you already know the three things I mentioned.

The temperatures are in the 80s for the next several days and you may not feel like drinking more water. You may sweat more even without additional exercise.Why is it important to drink water?Water regulates your body temperature and lubricates your joints. It also helps transport nutrients to give you energy and keep you healthy. If you're not properly hydrated, your body can't perform at its highest level.
I used to reference the RDA measures for water intake and discuss 3.2L for men and 2.9L for women to my clients.

There are a lot of types of drinks to choose from on the market today. Some of them are high in calories and sugar like Frappacinos. Some believe that the sports drink is a great alternative even though most people that workout on a regular basis do not need the amount of sodium and sugar that those drinks provide. Then there is the ever popular diet soda/pop that people will consume thinking that they are saving themselves calories, when they are really doing more harm then good. At the end of the day, the best liquid you could put in your body is water.
