How to Have a Healthy Diet with a Busy Schedule : Importance of Water in Diets


Now I’m going to talk about water. Earlier
I said that we can start off with eight glasses of water. If you’re really concerned about
how much water you might need or maybe you’re just an athlete and you feel like you are
not getting enough hydration throughout the day, you can visit your dietitian and she
can configure that out for you. So earlier I said to get the right amount of water that
you need. You can put a cup in your bathroom sink so that you can drink a glass in the
morning and then a glass at night before you go to bed. Then you can carry around a bottle
like this which contains 6-8oz glasses of water. There is a precaution that you need
to take if you are carrying around a bottle such as this one. You want to be careful not
to leave it in your car because when these bottles become heated they release toxicans
which can be carsinagon. Carsinagon and we don’t want to give ourselves cancer when we’re
trying to be healthy so you can do that. Another important thing to think about with water
is that you really are like a sponge if you think about it. Your body can not handle a
large amount of water all at once so you’re drinking the water throughout the day that
is the most beneficial. If you make a new goal and if you decide I want to drink 8 glasses
of water every day and one day you were very busy and you just didn’t get your water in,
don’t try to drink 8 glasses at night. You’re just going to happen to get up at the middle
of the night and you need a lot of rest and use the restroom. Because if you think about
it the sponge your cells can only absorb so much water so once your hydrated enough then
the rest is going to get flushed right out of your body, so that is how you properly
hydrate yourself.
