How Much Does Water Help Hydration?
Can you ever have too much water in your body? If you are wanting your body to run optimally, you should know how do you know if you are hydrated.
In the 2 previous posts, I've discussed my approach of focusing on eating water for hydration rather than drinking it. The idea of forcing yourself to drink “x” amount of water each day, whether you feel like drinking or are thirsty are one of the many commonly held views of health and fitness that might be ready to be put out to pasture.
With all of the emphasis put on consuming water and the limited consumption of raw fruits and vegetables many people have, it would be easy to say many people are dehydrated and should give up consumption of all other foods and simply drink water constantly throughout the day. But there are many others who could look to starting consuming more water rather than drinking it, or at the very least, adding it to those unforced glasses of water you consume. But be forewarned, you might find that once you make it a pact to begin consuming water-rich foods, you'll feel less like reaching for those huge jugs of water, and this might take some getting used to and of going against the norm.
Friends of mine find it odd that I actually tell people I don't drink water and only consume kombucha and water kefir. ¾ of my diet is vegetables and fruits, and I rarely feel that I must consume huge glasses of water. I'm not saying I don't get thirsty, I just find it is less frequent, and I don't obsess about drinking water.
From a health perspective, adding more fruits and greens is in no way a awful idea, as they provide such a lot of greater advantages than hydration, just be sure to pick organic.
So the answer really comes down to can you ever have enough hydration if you eat a significant amount of water-filled foods. Knowing how much does water help hydration is the first step in knowing whether or not water is really the best way to keep you hydrated.
