Helpful Tips for your well being

Hydration & its impact on the body-
*dehydration is #1 reason for fatigue
*keeps your joints healthy, systems more effective, skin
clear,digestion more efficient (ie regular)
What should I drink?
*water-up to 60%of adult body is water so must keep it hydratedsuggested
6-8 glasses of water per day-I typically carry a 24 oz
bottle with me at all times so I can gauge my intake for the day
*no sugary drinks such as cola
*a lot of discussion on the effects of caffeine & alcohol-I believe
the current lore is count your coffee/tea as 1/2 quantity i.e. 8 oz
cup of coffee equals 4 oz fluid intake
*alcohol always in moderation-my belief is do not deny yourself
what you enjoy as you doom yourself to failure but rather indulge
Food intake-read labels
* eat whole fresh foods as much as possible i.e. fresh as opposed
to frozen or canned vegetables
* have fresh salads every day-be mindful of amount of dressing
you use
* fresh fruit every day-can be in a shake
* avoid cold cuts & processed foods as much as possible
including sugar & refined flour
* eat small amounts frequently-if you allow yourself to become
hungary, chances are you will eat more than you would have,
had you consumed smaller amounts & not let yourself get to the
“starving” mode. According to my family, I also become “cranky”
when I go too long without food
* All that being said, I love a good steak, baked potato-no sour

Water Helps Energize Muscles. Cells that don’t maintain their balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel, which can result in muscle fatigue. “When muscle cells don’t have adequate fluids, they don’t work as well and performance can suffer,” Drinking enough fluids is important when exercising.

Anyone looking to lose weight could be helped by upping their water intake. Studies have found that when participants drink water before a meal, they lose weight faster than those who did not drink water . Extra H2O helps us eat less by making us feel full, and it may also boost metabolism. CamelBak hydration advisor Kate Geagan, RD says it’s not uncommon to put on weight by mistaking thirst for hunger, and she offers this pro tip: Next time you feel fatigued or sluggish, “drinking water may be just what [you] need to perk up.”

It helps endurance athletes fight fatigue.
Water is an integral part of most any workout, and it becomes especially important in order to prevent dehydration during long workouts. When exercising for an hour or more, drinking water treated with carbohydrates and salts (by mixing in tablets such as Nuun, or making a DIY version) can help maintain fluid balance, which aids athletic performance and helps prevent post-exercise fatigue and exhaustion
