11 Ways dehydration makes you fat and sick
The recommended water intake is about 3 liters a day. But it should be increased if you do some exercise, if you are ill, if you live in a hot environment, if you are pregnant or you are breastfeeding. The human body is made of about 75% of water. We normally lose 10 cups of water every day by breathing, sweating and urinating. Almost every physical and mental problem we have comes from dehydration. When you start getting thirsty, you are already dehydrated.
Remember that all the drinks containing sugar, alcohol and caffeine actually worsen your dehydration state. Pure water is needed! I recommend you drink 8-ounce glasses of cold water before every meal: it will boost your metabolism and burn calories in 10 minutes. This positive effect will last for about 30-40 minutes.
