You Drink Wa­ter…

But Get Your Quota All In One Go

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Health -

We need about 2ltr of fluid a day, ei­ther from wa­ter and other healthy drinks, or foods with a high wa­ter con­tent like melon, yo­gurts and soups. But if you get to the end of the day re­al­is­ing you haven’t drunk enough and so gulp down a few glasses in one go, your body won’t get the ben­e­fits it would have if you’d been drink­ing reg­u­larly through the day. Per­sonal trainer Faya Nils­son (fit­nes­son­toast.com) says, ‘Drink­ing 200ml within an hour is broadly con­sid­ered to be the most wa­ter our bod­ies can ab­sorb. Chug­ging an en­tire bottle will pass straight through you and put your kid­neys un­der un­nec­es­sary stress.’ Buy a 1.5ltr bottle and mark it in 200ml in­cre­ments, la­belling each line with the ‘hour’ of the day (9am, 10am and so on). Then drink 200ml ev­ery hour to keep your body’s wa­ter bal­ance.
