Drinking Water

For years, the standard has been to get at least eight glasses of water a day, but recent studies have moved that goal post, saying it’s fine for lots of that water to come from fresh fruits and veggies. Drinking too much water too fast can give the body more water than it can use and lose, and actually cause over hydration. While over hydration can also be symptomatic of underlying kidney problems and not just gulping down that H2O, people who do become overhydrated can experience confusion and seizures. So before guzzling your 2-liter bottle of water every day, maybe elect for some carrot sticks and a normal-sized bottle instead. Your body will thank you.
