11 Reasons Dehydration Is Making You Sick And Fat
Digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue and headache are just some of the adverse effects from not drinking enough water. We need it as much as air we breathe in! It’s not a joke.
We need water as much as we need air, and our body sends signals whenever we’re dehydrated. Lack of water in the body causes side-effects such as fatigue, skin and digestive problems, headaches, bladder and kidney disorders, etc. However, not many people are aware that they’re dehydrated, which is why it’s best to sip water throughout the day.
We suggest drinking 2 glasses of water after waking up to regulate your blood pressure which is a much healthier option than drinking a cup of morning coffee. Drinking sodas, tea or sweetened juices will not hydrate your body the same as water. These drinks have the opposite effect – sugar and salt, for example, can force the body to waste water supplies in order to flush them out from the system. If you can’t live without coffee, make sure you’re drinking an extra glass of water per a cup of coffee during the day.
Did you know that when you start feeling thirsty your body is already dehydrated? The best practice is to sip water throughout a day. Have it always handy!
If you’re not a morning person, have two glasses of water right after you wake up. It will boost up your blood pressure to normal levels, and it’s way healthier than having your first coffee on an empty stomach.
Also, don’t think that sweetened juices, soda or tea will hydrate you as well as water does. It’s actually the opposite! Sugar, as well as salt, makes your body waste precious water just to clean it out from your system. And if you love your coffee, make sure to drink one extra glass of water for every cup you have.
And as an added bonus, drinking water speeds up your metabolism and makes you feel more ‘full’. You will eat less once you start drinking more! It’s the safest and healthiest way to lose some weight.
