The Water-Wise Body

Hydration is essential to overall health, and water is the most
important nutrient for growth and development. But why
is drinking water so vital and how much is enough?
Water acts as the body’s transportation system, circulating
fluids, nutrients, and electrolytes to feed our cells
and tissue. Proper fluid balance can improve joint pain,
increase energy and mood, and brighten skin.
Drinking water can also help with weight management. According
to a National Center for Biotechnology study, drinking water
increases the calories you burn. A related study found that participants
who drank over 34 ounces a day lost an extra 4.4 pounds over
a one-year period. And replacing sugary drinks with water lowers your
calorie intake.
The human body is about 60% water, and it needs replenishing daily for good health.
The amount needed for fluid balance will vary from person to person. Keep it simple by
following these steps for a water-wise body: 1) Drink when you feel thirsty. 2) Stop drinking
when you no longer feel thirsty. 3) Drink more water in warm climates, at high altitudes, or
during exercise.
The Centers for Disease Control recommends carrying a water bottle and keeping it filled
when you’re on the go. Adding sugar-free, zero calorie flavoring to plain water can help you
stay hydrated all day.

Get More from Your Workout Routine

No one starts a workout routine hoping for mediocre results. So, how can you get the
maximum benefit from every workout?
Do some heavy lifting: The easiest way to boost your metabolism
is to build muscle. Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
Dr. Jacob Wilson recommends adding resistance training to your
workout to increase your metabolic rate and burn fat more
efficiently. Don’t want to wait in line for the weight machines?
Grab some free weights or use your own body weight for resistance;
both techniques activate a wider range of muscles than
a machine.
Exercise your heart: Just because you’ve started lifting weights doesn’t
mean you can forget about cardiovascular training. Cardio burns calories,
improves heart health, and can be a great stress reliever. Adding high-intensity cardio bursts
to your resistance training can help preserve lean muscle mass and maximize fat loss.
Get into the groove: Blasting your favorite upbeat playlist is a great way to get your blood
pumping during a workout. But studies show that listening to music with a slower tempo
immediately after exercising helps your body relax and recover faster. Proper recovery is vital
to getting the most from your workouts.
