How Much Water Should I Drink? A Simple & Science-Based Answer

By

If you want to know how much water you should drink for health, weight loss, and/or bodybuilding, then you want to listen to this episode.

Drinking enough water every day is like flossing.

It’s one of those “annoying” little habits that’s hard to embrace but pays big dividends.

“Wait…is flossing really that important?” you ask?

Surprisingly, yes.

Research shows that periodontal disease subjects the body to high levels of bacterial exposure, which increases the risk of heart disease.

Studies also show a strong association in the elderly between overall dental health and all-cause mortality (death from all causes).

So…floss every day! 🙂

Anywho, back to the subject at hand: how much water you should drink.

Water intake isn’t associated with all-cause mortality like gum health, but it’s still vitally important for optimizing health and performance.

The bottom line is if you’re currently not drinking enough water, you’re going to notice several immediate benefits by increasing intake to optimal levels.

In this episode, you’re going to learn about those benefits as well as how much water you should be drinking.

So let’s get to it!
