Hey family, Larry here with this week’s updates. It’s just started getting Summer hot around these parts. Which got me to thinking about how important it is to stay hydrated. Are you drinking enough water daily?
If you are one of those people who drink lots of coffee, juice, soda, wine, alcohol, etc., I highly recommend that you switch to just drinking water. You can even mix it up with some lemon, lime or other fruits to flavor it or even have some herbal tea.
Water is as important as oxygen. It’s a fact that most people are generally not drinking enough water on a regular basis. Maybe you don’t like drinking water, that’s okay I wasn’t much of a water drinker myself about 10 years ago. Jamie on the other hand has always loved water. She even use to ask for it instead of the soda her parents would offer. Not all of us feel the same about water and that’s okay. However, regardless if you love water or not, your body needs it.
It wasn’t till I started reading about all the health benefits of drinking water that I decided to take the plunge.
Now I don’t really drink anything else but water. I enjoy some coffee in the morning, some herbal tea here and there and if I am eating out, I get an unsweetened ice tea. But regardless of the day, I am always drinking water. I prefer fresh squeezed lemon in mine or a really good alkaline water.
Even if you already drink water regularly it’s important to know, if you are getting enough.
Here is a simple formula to follow:
I certainly can feel all the healthy effects from staying properly hydrated throughout the day. If you are already drinking enough water a day that’s great! If you are not, it would benefit your training & health tremendously if you start.
Here are some health benefits to staying hydrated:
- Staying hydrated increases your energy and helps relieve fatigue.
- Drinking more water has helped many lose weight and others to maintain their weight.
- Curbs your appetite, especially when you drink a glad 15-30 minutes before eating a meal.
- Drinking water helps to flush out toxins through urine and sweat.
- Staying hydrated has been known to help clear problem skin and to keeps the skin moisturized.
- Water drinkers get a boost to their immune system and therefor get sick less than others.
- Water lubricates your joints and helps your muscles be more elastic.
- Switching to drinking more water can save lots of money, which helps reduce stress. 😉
And that is just scratching the surface!

Larry, you are right on target with water. Many people, when I ask them how much water they are drinking usually respond a lot. When questioned exactly it is no where near half their weight in ounces. They are usually surprised by how much they have to drink. Also as they lose weight their water intake should continue to adjust with the new weight. They should also take care not to drink too much at one time to avoid a life threatening condition known as hyponatremia (low sodium in the blood). Overall water is the best drink and really should be your only drink, but hey we are all human :

Hi Marlon, thanks!
You are absolutely correct. Thanks for the added value 🙂
Yes yes yes=) I have grown up on water and I love it=) we are blessed with a fantastic water supply from a natural spring from the mountain. Crystal clear with a fantastic fresh taste=) water filtered through nature=) but I can belive that there is a lot of people who don’t like water because of bad water quality. And baying good pure water from bottles can be expensive.

Hi Sverre, I was buying a lot of water bottles. I’ve since stopped, it can be expensive.
It took me a while actually to acquire a taste for water. Once I switched to drinking just water though. I felt amazing….
