Are you constantly thirsty? Are you ever parched and water doesn’t seem to help?
You may be dehydrated.
A jaw-dropping 60% of our human bodies are comprised of water.
I’m willing to wager that over 80% of people in today’s society don’t drink enough water.
When I discover that someone doesn’t drink water to replenish and recycle the gunk in their bodies, I always ask them a simple question:
“Do you change the oil in your car?”
Usually, the answer is yes. You wouldn’t think twice about changing your oil!
When we treat our vehicles better than we treat our bodies, we have a problem.
There is a misconception that you need to drink your body weight in ounces or a gallon of water a day for you to stay hydrated.
What if there was a way for you to hydrate with food? What if we could drink a couple of glasses of water a day and hydrate the remainder of our bodies daily intake by consuming food?
