Water is the most important liquid on earth. All living beings on earth need water to live. Human body contains around 60% of water and most people cannot live without water more than 3-4 days.
Water is a source of energy and the best component for human’s health. In our society the biggest reason for most diseases is a lack of clean water. Even if people have access to clean water they do not consume it enough. There is a rule, we should consume about 300 ml for every kilogram of body weight. So for example 70 kg person should consume about 2.1 liters every day.
I have had a tendency to drink too little water. Back in the days I drank just about 0.5 liters per day (not workout days), yeah I know it was stupid ;). I drank when I felt thirsty but this is already too late as body is telling it has a water deficit. Good indicator which shows do you consume enough water would be to check the color of your urine, darker yellow it is, more dehydrated you are.
Lately after reading a very interesting book I have started to drink a little more. And after I read an article where one journalist made 30 days water challenge which raised his energy levels and dissolved many health problems he had, I got an idea to do the same.
In water challenges which I have found, you have to drink 1 gallon (3.7 liters) of water every day but as I am quite light weight (little less than 70 kg), I´m sticking with 3,5 liters “only” 🙂
NOTE! Your body can process about 800 ml water per hour, so if you would like to take up this challenge yourself, do not drink more than that or you may face so called water poisoning which can have very serious results.
- Challenge: Drink 3.5 liters of water every day (no sweetened drinks and alcohol allowed)
- Goal: 30 days straight
- Starting day: 27.03.2017
Challenge completed 🙂
