I would bet money that a majority of people reading this right now are not properly hydrated.
On the average, water makes up 60 – 70% of your body weight. The range is due to the fact that different cells contain different amounts of water. Muscle cells, for ex- ample, are 70-75% water whereas fat cells are only 10-15% water. Therefore, a muscular person will have a larger percentage of his / her body weight coming from water
Dehydration is usually expressed as the loss of a certain percentage of one’s weight. Scientists define dehydration as fluid losses greater than only I% of body weight. Water is lost first from the blood which is 90% water. If water deprivation continues, cells will start to lose their water content.
Why is it so hard to stay hydrated?
Our bodies are constantly losing water. The most obvious way is through daily urine output. If you exercise, you sweat. Studies of athletes have shown sweat losses of 2 quarts per hour while exercising! Most of us will lose less than that on our daily walk/run, but sweating is still a large source of water loss.
Do you drink a lot of water, but you are still dehydrated? You could be drinking the wrong type of water.
