STEP 1: HYDRATE
Before we begin, go into the kitchen, fill a glass with water, and drink. There, you just did the most important thing you can do to start improving your health- drinking sufficient water. Could it be simpler? We don’t think so. All medical and scientific research points to this as your starting place. Drink more water.
How long can you hold your breath? You cannot go long without oxygen can you? Next to oxygen, water is the most essential nutrient required by your body not only to survive but also to function properly. It might not seem like it, but water is the most necessary nutrient of them all. A significant fraction of your body is water. Your muscle tissue contains about 75% water. YOur blood is 95% water, your body fat contains 14% water and your bones have 22 percent water. All toteled, your body is about 55 to 60 percent water.
With that much water in your body, you’d think that you could go for a while without any more. However, your body is using up water even sitting still. Have you ever sat in your car with the windows rolled up when it was cold outside, and had the windows fog up? That’s the water that leaves your body with breathing and evaporation through your skin.
Water is the main ingredient in the fluids in your body systems. Fluids travel through your body, carrying nutrients and wast to and from all your cells and organs. Your heart, your eyes, your intestines and even your big toe ned water-based fluids to survive.
Don’t wait until you’re thirst – according to a Mayo Clinic study, thirst is not always a reliable gauge that your’re getting enough water. In fact, thirst usually doesn’t develop until after the body fluids are depleted well below levels required for optial functioning.
We recommend that men drink at least four quarts of water a day, and that women drink at least three quarts.
Does it surprise you that Step One is simply to drink more water? Go get another drink and we’ll move on to Step Two.
