The exact amount of water you need every day varies depending on your gender, current weight, activity level and current state of health. Usually women need about nine 8-ounce cups of liquids daily, while men require 13 8-ounce cups. All beverages that you drink can account for your fluid intake, although water is calorie-free and cuts out any calories from regular sodas and sweetened teas when you drink it in place of these sugary beverages.
Sometimes you may think you are hungry but you may only be thirsty to grab some water and you will see how it helps control your appetite also. The best water to drink is from your whole house water filtration system from Superior Water.
It’s not just how much water you drink each day, but also when you drink it. Before you sit down to your home-cooked meal or as soon as you grab a seat at your favorite lunchtime café, have a couple glasses of water. Filling your belly with two 8-ounce glasses of water about 20 to 30 minutes before your meal makes you feel full. Because you’ll feel a little less hungry you’ll wind up consuming roughly 75 to 90 fewer calories at that particular meal. Do this three times per day – breakfast, lunch and dinner – and you’ll cut 225 to 270 calories from your daily diet.
