Most people are surprised when I can tell if they're not drinking enough water. The telltale signs include skin problems (acne, premature aging, sensitivity), muscles that feel brittle and inflexible when I press on them, and symptoms reported during our intake/catch up time, including headaches, fatigue, poor digestion and constipation.
Water is needed to facilitate many bodily processes, so drink up. How much is enough? The old formula of 8 glasses a day doesn't account for your size, activity level and health concerns. Try working up gradually to half your body weight in ounces; add more when you exercise, are pregnant, or are drinking caffeinated or alcoholic beverages. Consult your healthcare provider for correct amounts if you have a medical condition that requires fluids to be controlled.
