It is unhealthy and can be lethal to go too long without drinking enough fluids. It is recommended that men consume 100 ounces of water, and women consume 70 ounces, daily. These guidelines are based on normal activity levels and should increase when there is more physical exertion. Going a day without drinking enough fluids can result in heat exhaustion or severe muscle cramps. Dehydration can be deadly.
Dehydration occurs when your body doesn’t get enough fluids. You usually know when you’re dehydrated, but some of the more common symptoms of dehydration are:
- Upset or burning stomach
- Decrease in energy
- Longer post-workout recovery
One of the greatest favors you can do for your body is to schedule your fluid intake. Drink one glass of water first thing in the morning and one hour before you go to bed. Make sure to include a large, healthy drink with every meal. Avoid excess sugary drinks, soda, or alcohol. Drink plenty of water, but don’t overdo it. Drinking too much water within a short period of time can leave you feeling bloated. Drink a lot of water and fluids, but also eat fruits and vegetables that are high in water content. Some of these are watermelon (who would have ever thought?), pineapple, pears, blueberries, grapefruit, celery, cucumber, lettuce, and tomatoes.
