What kind? How much? When?

We took one of the simplest things on the planet and made it so complex.

Let’s keep it simple.

  1. Drink filtered water
    1. Solid carbon block provides clean water at a good price point (countertop and under sink options available)
    2. Counter top or fridge based filter (eg. Brita, Zero, Pur)
    3. Distilled or reverse osmosis water (Higher cost, and distilled you may want to remineralize)
  2. Drink 7-10 glasses daily
    1. Fresh raw food can hydrate your and processed foods can dehydrate you, adjust accordingly
    2. If you drink coffee or alcohol you will need to drink more water
    3. Intense workouts will require additional water
    4. If you are undergoing a detox, drink more
    5. If you consume a lot of fiber, drink more to avoid constipation
  3. Drink around meals
    1. Water mixed with food can make digestion harder
    2. Drink 15 minutes before a meal or 1 hour after

Cheers!
