The importance of drinking enough water

How many times have you heard or read the recommendation to drink a minimum of two litres 1 day of water, for health reasons? 0 that using thirst to control your fluid intake habits is not adequate to keep you properly hydrated? 0 that caffeinated beverages such as sodas and coffee can cause dehydration? 0 that the use of thirst to control your fluid intake habits is not adequate to keep you properly hydrated? 0 that caffeinated beverages such as sodas and coffee can cause dehydration? 0 that the use of thirst to control your fluid intake habits is not adequate to keep you properly hydrated? 0 that caffeinated beverages such as sodas and coffee can cause dehydration?

Probably too many, considering that the three questions do not contain such a definite answer.
According to the recent findings of an American medical institute panel, none of these claims are truly true. What they concluded is that men need an average of three and a half liters of water a day and women need two and a half liters. But that doesn’t mean we have to consume all that pure water. The totality of fluids ingested daily is included in that amount, including fruits, vegetables, sodas, teas, coffees, milk, and other foods. The researchers also suggest that there is extreme variability in the water needs of each individual, depending on climate, activity level and amount of sweat expelled. When we want to put things in their place we will find that most people will do well if they drink when they feel some thirst.
We at M&F typically recommend higher water consumption (up to 5 liters in some people) for reasons other than health. Water does not contain calories but makes us feel full. That means dieters will work better when they drink water. There is also the volumizing effect of supplements such as creatine that require extra water consumption. And of course, intense exercise dramatically increases our fluid needs.
Therefore, you have to drink more water if your goal is to lose fat or increase muscle size. If this is not the case, it will suffice for cc to dictate the first moment in which you feel the harassment of thirst.
