How much water do you have to drink per day? Hint: it’s not simply eight glasses of water per day.
Drink! Drink! Drink More!
You often get to hear that you need to gulp down tons and tons of water, even if you aren’t thirsty. Thirst, you hear, comes too late and, besides, all that water also flushes “toxins” out of your body.
In reality, drinking this much is stress for your kidneys and the recommendation may simply be due to a misinterpretation of a 1974 book on nutrition. There also is no scientific research showing that thirst comes too late to prevent dehydration.
And if you regularly drink coffee or colas, you can count this toward the total liquids you drink per day, because the caffeine in them won’t dehydrate you.
