Welcome back to Reboot Boot Camp!
Want to Boost Your Energy and Metabolism?
Drink water! Even a slight dehydration of 2% can cause us to feel fatigue and our muscles to slow down their metabolism of energy. We can also can begin to suffer from high blood pressure, weakness, injury prone muscles, headaches and dizziness. As if that’s not enough, not having enough water can also cause us to consume more calories than needed since we can often think we're hungry when we're actually thirsty!
Wondering how much to consume? The Institute of Medicine recommends the following:
For women, consume 9 cups of fluid. A minimum of 4.5 cups of this should be water.
For men, consume 13 cups of fluid. A minimum of 6.5 cups of this should be water.
But, I find a super quick and easy guide is to simply drink half your body weight(lbs) in ounces. So, if you weigh 140 lb, you’d want to drink 70 oz in water.
If you don’t love plain water, try adding lemon, lime, mint or cucumber to it to give it flavor.
Choose whichever option works best for you. Your first challenge of the day is to drink more water!
