🧡 Unless you’ve been living under a stone you’re certainly aware of the health benefits of drinking water. They really can’t be overstated. If there were a fountain of youth, it would be water. It’s critical that you consume at least 2-3 litres every day, however this is only a guideline and you may actually need more!
😲It is SO important, that I keep a glass of water bedside so I can drink it the second I open my eyes! In addition, make a point of consuming an additional 300ml - 500ml pint of water or Green Tea (loaded with additional benefits) with each meal and snack. It’s fine to consume other sensible beverages with your meals, but you should STILL at least have 300ml of WATER! It’s THAT important!
💪Not only is it key to making you feel full, but it makes up over 85% of your muscle tissue...so if you want your muscles to be working at their best (and looking their leanest) then drink away!
❓Are you drinking enough water? Consuming the right amount of water for your body weight and active lifestyle is very important and one of the simplest (and cheapest) ways to boost your metabolism and help you to achieve your fitness goals. Plus it can improve your sleep, moods and concentration!

ADDITIONAL Factors That Determine Water Intake Needs👇
The amount of water that you need to intake will vary according to a number of different factors, including the following:
Environment. If the weather conditions are humid or hot, you will sweat more, and this will mean that you need to consume higher levels of water. Dehydration is also more common at high altitudes.
Activity levels. If you engage in any type of activity that makes you sweat, you need to consume additional water to replace any fluids that you lose. It is critical that you consume water in advance, throughout, and after working out.
Overall health. If you have a fever or are suffering from an illness, you may lose water from your body. Ensure that you adhere to your doctor's recommendations at all times to ensure you remain hydrated.
Pregnancy or breastfeeding. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will need to consume extra fluids to ensure that you remain sufficiently hydrated.
