Platinum Health Challenge Day 8: Stay Hydrated
We all know we should be drinking water, but how much? For Day 8 your challenge is to Stay Hydrated. The formula below can help you figure it you.
Take your body weight in pounds and divide in half. Your answer is how many oz of water you should get each day. But here is the trick. Every time you have a liquid that dehydrates you such as coffee or tea (even decaffeinated), soda, juice or alcohol you have to make that up with the same amount of water!
Wait, did you say coffee, tea, soda, juice, and alcohol all dehydrate! Yes we did. Coffee and tea, even decaffeinated or herbal, are diuretics, which mean they dehydrate you. Soda and juice are both high in sugar, which also causes dehydration. And we all know that alcohol leads to dehydration.
Remember to post using the #platinumhealthchallenge for raffle points.
