I knock a chute back within the first couple of hours of me rising from the sack.
I used to sip on sugary liquids throughout the day and grab an 'OASIS' or something similar thinking that was better the H2O but I felt dehydrated and zapped throughout the day. My sugar addiction (I never knew I had one) became obvious when I started reading the back of what I was consuming.
Now, I rarely drink anything other than black coffee, a few cheeky whiskeys and water now. My sugar cravings have completely gone thanks to the shakes I make and the water I consume.
Lads and ladies, dehydration is no joke and you'd be shocked at how many people don't consume enough liquids throughout their day. It's a vital part of moving nutrients around the body so please make sure you are drinking enough.
Here's a direct quote from @harvard Health:
"Drinking fluids is crucial to staying healthy and maintaining the function of every system in your body, including your heart, brain, and muscles. Fluids carry nutrients to your cells, flush bacteria from your bladder, and prevent constipation.
Older adults often don't get enough fluids and risk becoming dehydrated, especially during summer when it's hotter and people perspire more. "Older people don't sense thirst as much as they did when they were younger. And that could be a problem if they're on a medication that may cause fluid loss, such as a diuretic," says Dr. Julian Seifter, a kidney specialist and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Warning signs of dehydration include weakness, low blood pressure, dizziness, confusion, or urine that's dark in color.
To ward off dehydration, Dr. Seifter says that healthy people should get 30 to 50 ounces of water per day (about 1 to 1.5 liters), but not all at once." Consume more water, kids!
