Since our bodies are 1/2 water, water is our mostimportant nutrient. We replace 80 to 96 ounces of water daily. Water is especiallynecessary when we exercise and sweat. Conserve water in your body by dressingappropriately, hydrating, and drinking 8 to 10 cups of water daily.
Cool, Clear Water.
The most important nutrient.
Our bodies are more than half water. We must replace, on the average 80 to 96 ounces of water per day that is used or lost by respiration, urination, and perspiration.
Come July and August, no one will argue with you about the importance of water in our body.
When your body is low even one quart of fluid, your ability to sweat is reduced. Consequently, body temperature begins to rise.
Protect yourself in warm weather by:
1. Dressing correctly
Light-colored clothing reflects heat. Your head is cooler in a light-colored, ventilated cap than it is when bare. You are not correctly dressed until you have applied sunscreen: SPF 24 or higher.
We can get some water by eating foods that are high in water. but most of our water will come from drinking eight to ten cups of water per day. 2. Hydrating
Drink before, during, and after your exercise. don’t rely on thirst to stimulate rehydration and don’t rely on sports drinks entirely. Electrolyte loss is less important than fluid loss. Unfortunately, beer won’t do the trick either, as several fans found out at the Ballpark in Arlington, Texas once.

Weighing yourself
Weigh before and after exercise. Losing two pounds of weight means you are down about a quart of liquid. Persistent weight loss over several days of hot weather exercise usually means you are dehydrating, maybe dangerously so.
A vacation that combines fitness and fun can be just what you need to relax and stay in shape. Just remember, though, that high fluid losses lead to poor performance and can lead to dangerous heat stroke.
Our bodies are more than half water. Adequate water consumption helps us utilize key nutrients, helps the body’s immune system, and reduces fluid retention.
