You don't need to drink eight glasses of water a day to stay hydrated. Include certain foods in your diet, and this task will be much easier.
Dehydration is a common cause of weakness, malaise, and even fainting in people with busy schedules: politicians, athletes, artists.
The body is smart: it signals us about a lack of water by dry mouth, if the first signs of dehydration are ignored, nausea and dizziness may appear, a person may lose consciousness. Under high stress, dehydration can damage your internal organs in just a few days.
How much water does a person need to prevent this? The benefits of the magical eight glasses a day have not been scientifically proven.
According to a study by the US National Academy of Sciences, the daily water intake is 2.7 liters for women and 3.7 liters for men (11 and 13 glasses, respectively).
How to cover such a need for fluid? It's simple: add foods high in water to your diet. Let's see where it is most.
Despite the assurances of the supporters of the eight-glass theory, maintaining water balance will not cure chronic diseases, will not relieve the skin of wrinkles, and will not help to cope with insomnia. However, our body is 75% water, and its balance is very important for normal functioning. Keep this in mind as you shape your daily diet.
