How much water should you be drinking a day? You should be drinking about 25%-50% of your body weight in ounces daily. It’s actually not about how much water you are getting but whether you’re staying hydrated or not. Water is vital for your health.

Biggest side effects can be headaches, lack of energy, weight gain, lack of cleansing and detoxification, weakened immune response, getting the cold and flu easily, or feeling lethargic. Proper hydration is so important to your overall health.

To stay properly hydrated, I have four recommendations. First, I would recommend drinking about half of your body weight in ounces a day. I would also suggest you consume more fruits and vegetables in your diet, which are full of electrolytes.

Next, I would recommend consuming all natural sea salts in your food (Himalayan salt or Celtic salt), which helps your body stay hydrated. Lastly, I would encourage you to exercise more. Exercise can support the process of hydration because movement increases circulation, increasing electrolyte levels into your cells.

The body needs at least 2 to 3 liters of water a day, and drinking more than that will keep you from feeling hungry. Not only that, but it will also help you eliminate more toxins from your body.ehydrating the body through pure water gets your metabolism running in full balance rather than being slow and sluggish, which is a cause of weight gain.
