Is the adage of drinking eight glasses of water a day still true? While that has been the general rule of thumb, there are a lot of factors that come into play when you think about how much water you need per day.
For so long, it was eight glasses of eight ounces of water, which is a total of 64 ounces per day. But don’t you think that is so generic knowing that we all weigh differently and we all sweat differently?
We all have different amounts of body fat and even men have more body water than women because they have more muscle mass, while women have more fatty tissue and thus they have less water. And so, we can’t just fit our water requirements in a single box because each of us has different genetic makeup and different activity levels, therefore, different needs.
In this episode, we're talking about water, which is the fourth macronutrient that we rarely talk about. When we talk about this new macro craze, we're usually just talking about carbs, fat, and protein. But what we don't realize is that water is certainly, if not, the most important macronutrient essential for so many of our bodily functions.
