How much water do you drink? For most of us, the answer is "not enough." Water makes up about 60 percent of our weight. We're always losing water, even by just breathing. Drinking more water will keep your body systems running smoothly and take up space in your stomach to keep you from overeating. Water keeps you hydrated and energized while you exercise. Try spicing it up by adding fruit or other flavors, or by trying tea!
This week, I will try to drink eight cups (about three 20-ounce bottles) of water every day.
