The Dangers of Dehydration

Most people don’t realize what a difference drinking more water can make! If you feel tired or crave sweets often, try incorporating more H2O into your daily regimen – it can make a huge difference!
Mild dehydration is extremely common and it affects your mood and energy levels. Simply being thirsty is not the only indication that you are dehydrated. Dehydration makes you feel sluggish and tired. It also makes you crave sugars which hinders your progress toward your goals.
Water makes up about 60% of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. The more you work out, the more water you need to drink! On average, 2 liters of water per day should be consumed. Pro tip from our Mei Fitness personal trainer Ethan, “To get adequate fluid intake, I recommend always having a water bottle around so drinking water becomes a habit.” Just like working out, eating healthy and staying hydrated takes effort and commitment. To create a healthy lifestyle consistency is important. Drinking water boosts your metabolism, helps prevent kidney stones, regulates your body temperature and prevents cardiovascular disease.
