Cool ~ Interesting Tidbit of the Day ~ Water Consumption

Interesting Tidbit of the Day:

Just a friendly reminder to everyone...drink plenty of water
today and every day. You would not believe the difference in
your hair when your body's thirst is quenched.



Karen Marie

Whoops. Teach, Jen, anyone. I just realized this probably
should have gone into another category. My apologies.
Please move it if necessary.

Good piece of advice. I read in some reputable source that by the time you feel thirsty, you are already in a water deficit condition. I have the best success by measuring out the daily water in advance, just to be sure I drink enough.

Cool Drink plenty of water...

My younger brother said something years ago that
somehow managed to stick in my head - "Never miss
an opportunity to go to the bathroom." I'm not sure if
he said it or was quoting someone else, but it stuck.

I also use the opportunity to refill. After I, uh, well, you know,
go, I immediately drink another glass of water. This year I have
really strived to drink more water. In the first week alone I noticed
my skin was softer and I was not tired in the middle of the day.

Now if I could just make myself eat more fish.

I do drink a lot of water, but as I'm getting older I have to stop drinking it much earlier in the evening or my sleep is--ahem--interrupted. It's always good to get a reminder though.

Karen Marie, are you telling me you don't like fish, young lady? Why that's brain food!

I admit that I used to dislike fish because of the fishy odour in the house during and after cooking. Then I discovered outdoor propane grilling. It's changed everything about how much I enjoy fish.

Cool Water consumption and fish...

LOL...Well, I guess my dislike of fish came from growing up
eating what amounted to pre-formed sticks labeled 'fish'.
While I did like them as a kid, when I grew up I realized I
was eating a stick of whipped fish floor sweep with a coating.
Very unappetizing.

It's the taste and the smell, I guess. I don't mind Tilapia, I'll
just have to make myself eat more of it. Salmon is out of
the question because my mother used to fix (sorry, Mom) this
white gravy slop with salmon and peas on bisquits. I'd rather
starve than ever have to eat that again.

I've recently been researching food as regards if and when it's worth it to your health to pay the increased price for organically grown and discovered that the fish sold in the US of A is heavily contaminated by a number of unsavory substances. Everything that fish is good for, you can get it from another source. I'll rarely if ever eat fish again.

As for water - yes! I read all this stuff about trying to get more moisture into your hair by soaking it and misting it, but I personally believe the only way to get more moisture into your hair is to drink the water because the roots are what suck it up, not the shaft. And of course it's essential to all other bodily functions as well. I have a 32-ounce jug that I make sure gets filled (and emptied) twice a day.

Yes to water and no to fish! (I am vegan...) I know I feel a lot healthier when I get plenty of water to drink.

I don't want to drag this thread too off-topic (water? fish? same thing, right?), but if you're going to eat fish, I encourage you to read and print this PDF. You can find more information about what kinds of fish are healthy for people and the environment if you Google, too.

I don't eat fish, either, and I don't like water. A lot of the ideas about drinking lots of water seem to forget that much of our food contains massive proportins of water anyway. Dehydration ican certainly be a problem, but I'm not convinced we all need as much water as some people think.

Yes! Me, too! I was walking about the grocery store when I
spotted a tall 33 ounce bottle of smart water. I actually bought
it only for the bottle, LOL. I'm too cheap to order the stainless
steel water bottle I saw on NPR.org, but love the Smart Water
bottle in the meantime.

SM, I'll think of you every time I drink and refill! LOL

As one who has suffered greatly in the past due to not drinking enough water (kidney stones), I agree that most people probably need to drink more water than they generally drink, and it's important to include water without other ingredients that cause the body to have to digest those additional substances in the process. Our kidneys are happiest when regularly "bathed" with simple water. They love it.

I aim to have 96 oz. total liquids during each 24-hour period, not counting beer or wine (distilled liquor is fine). When voiding in the restroom, I also pay attention to the color. If it's strongly yellow, or worse, an ochre color, it's too dark, as that indicates too many minerals that need to be diluted more. The color should be light to very pale yellow.

I also noticed the delightful side effect that when I upped my daily water intake, my hair started growing much faster. However, for several years prior, it grew slowly, so now it's at normal speed or perhaps a tad faster than normal.
