While many people invested in their health focus on what food they eat and how much exercise they get, many often overlook the benefits of staying hydrated. But never fear, in this article I explain exactly how to get the proper hydration your body needs!

Tip #4, drink at least one (8 0z)  glass of water with every meal. Not only will this help you stay hydrated throughout the day, but it will also provide you with an easy way to remember how much water you’ve consumed.  Additionally, consuming 1-2 glasses of water before a meal will help with weight loss, as it will curve cravings and allow you to eat less food, decreasing your overall calorie consumption. Follow the other tips I give and you’ll be well on your way to staying hydrated!

While some people have trouble staying hydrated, other people actually have trouble determining if their body is hydrated or not. Although you may not feel dehydrated, it is important to pay attention to your body’s signs, as they will certainly indicate when you need to drink up!

Up next, secrets 5, 6, and 7! You’re in the middle of a workout and just finished your last set of shoulder press when bam! Nature calls. You go to the bathroom and see that your urine is a dark yellow. Ohhh yes boys and girls, it’s a little on the gross side, but tip # 5- the color of your urine is a sign of how hydrated or dehydrated you are. The color should be pale yellow to clear, so if it seems darker than it should be, amp up the water intake. If it is very dark, you are severely dehydrated, or could possibly have an infection so do not hesitate to see a doctor. Now, if you’ve ever weighed yourself before and after a workout, you probably noticed that you weigh less. No, this is not because your sweeeet new workout routine just burned a bunch fat (unfortunately), but because you just lost some of your body’s water content through sweating and breathing heavy.

Without further ado, tip #6- for every pound of body weight (water weight) that you lose during a workout, drink an additional 16 ounces of water to rehydrate. Still unsure if your body’s hydrated?

Finally Tip # 7, use your thumb and pointer finger to pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold it there for a few seconds. If the skin takes a while to return to its initial position, no, you're not dreaming, you’re just dehydrated, so drink up! Water is crucial to a healthy body and mind, and being hydrated has many benefits like healthy skin, a positive attitude, better breath and even a healthier body weight! Simply put, hyrdration is important! So no more excuses after reading this! Seven (not so secret anymore) tips on how to stay hydrated!
