July 2014: Hydration Station
You may be surprised to learn that adequate hydration for an average healthy adult living in a mild climate is nine 8-ounce cups for women and thirteen cups for men. Mayo Clinic
reminds us that the popular eight 8-ounce cups of water per day really should be reworded to “drink at least
eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid per day.” It does not all have to come from water however. All fluids count towards your daily amount. For instance, we tend to eat twenty percent of our water intake. Fruits and vegetables such as grapefruit, bell peppers, broccoli, and tomatoes are all over 90% water and excellent sources of needed fluids, not to mention valuable nutrients.
