How Much Water Should You Be Drinking?

999754_10203035168865293_802286473_n This was a important question my friends and I had on our mind as we started out on this journey to a healthier lifestyle, was how much water should be drinking in a day. As most of us know water is the cheapest diet drink around, it contains no calories and the benefits it has for your body are immeasurable. Not only does water help you shed those nasty pounds, but also helps to remove toxins in your body, helps to prevent wrinkles just to name a few things.

Below you will find a chart showing you how much water you should be drinking on a daily basis, this chart is based on your current weight. Just scroll down and find your current weight and on the right hand side it will show you how many ounces you should be consuming on a daily basis. For example if you are 120 pounds you should be drinking 48 ounces of water per day, or if you are 300 pounds you should be drinking 120 ounces of water per day. Below are some wonderful benefits from increasing your water intake.

  • Weight Loss-It is proven that if you drink an 8-10 ounce glass of water before every meal it will help you feel full and therefore not eat as much as you normally would.
  • Healthy SkinDrinking water can be more effective in producing healthier skin and then spending your money on skin creams, hydrating your body will help give your skin a natural glow and also help in minimizing your wrinkles.
  • Pain Relief-Drinking lots of water can help you elevate pain in your joints which is great for those whom are exercising a lot.
  • Remove Toxins-Drinking water helps to remove toxins from your body it is a great cleansing tool.
  • Metabolism-Water is a perfect way to increase your metabolism which you know helps to burn that nasty fat in our bodies.
  • Restoring your Energy-Keeping hydrated can help make you feel fresh and restored and can produce alot of energy in yourself. Personally if I drink just as little as 24 ounces of water I find I start to have alot more energy and I also tend to be more awake and alert.
  • Constipation-Sometimes when starting out on a new healthier lifestyle we tend to get constipated and water can help in keeping constipation away.
