How to Track Water
You might know that we all need to breathe air and drink water. But maybe you will be surprised to learn that the simple act of drinking enough water every day can improve your life in many aspects.
When you become aware of your food and lifestyle, the first thing you should do is to make sure you are getting enough water. It is not enough not to be thirsty - every person needs a different amount of water for optimal functioning. This depends mostly on your weight and metabolism.
So what are the main benefits of drinking water?
- Helps losing weight
- Improves quality of the skin
- Proper heat regulation
- Fewer headaches
- Boosts brain effectivity
- Positive mood influence
Is it enough to drink soda, coffee, tea, or other substances?
Depends but in short, no. If you want to do this in the most effective way, you should have your bottle or glass ready at hand filled with clean water. Different drinks might have different hydration properties, while others might have a negative effect. Caffeinated drinks may have a mild diuretic effect — meaning that they may cause the need to urinate, which equals less water in the body. Alcohol has a strong diuretic effect - which means you need to drink much more water to eliminate its diuretic effects. Fruit juices and other drinks with a high sugar content can inhibit the body from absorbing the water it needs.
