How much water is enough?

 

Hydration is of upmost importance. Each person requires a unique amount water based upon their age, gender, size and activity level. If you are exercising at high intensities this amount will greatly increase. Some suggest using the body weight method for determining the amount of water to drink daily: Body Weight in Pounds/ 2 = Daily Amount of Water in  Fluid Ounces. Vegetables juice is very nutritious and has been used in several instances as an energy booster. Fruit juices are beneficial, but should be limited to prevent spikes in blood glucose levels. Just remember to practice temperance in all things. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends drinking an average of 8-10 cups of water daily.
