Beverage Basics and Health 5
How much water is enough? Many doctors say to drink half your body weight in ounces daily (unless you have kidney disease or have been told otherwise by your doctor). So, a 150lb person would drink 75 ounces of water, or just over 9 cups. Any less and he will be dehydrated. Remember to add on more water for exercise, and for caffeine. The rule with caffeine is to drink one glass of water for every glass of caffeinated beverage you drink. Any less and you will be dehydrated, putting you at risk for high blood pressure, headaches, fatigue, dry skin, and wrinkles. Who wants those when there’s a free solution in every building!
