☝️ The problem of day-to-day hydration
A lot of people are under-hydrated day in, day out — due to one simple fact:
No two drinks are the same in terms of hydration value. Various drinks you have throughout the day (juice, soda, coffee, etc.) allow your body to absorb different amounts of water. This may sound weird, but some beverages will actually drain your body of water, instead of adding to its water balance.
Any liquor makes for a vivid example of this scientific fact: the nastiest part of every hangover has severe dehydration to thank for that awful morning-after headache! In other words, the problem of staying hydrated is not as obvious as popular culture would have us believe – the 'just drink something when you're thirsty' rule can get you nowhere fast, especially if you have the WRONG kind of drink.
💦 The role of hydration in fasting
When you adopt intermittent fasting into your lifestyle, staying properly hydrated becomes an even more important issue. Can you guess why? You're absolutely right if you think it’s because during a fast, you may turn down certain meals that have a drink with it – like a can of Coke or a glass of juice to wash it down. This may not sound like much of a loss, but in the big picture – your body will miss out on a lot of water unless you adjust properly.
And that's exactly why drinking the right amount of water every day is a vital part of a healthy and safe fasting lifestyle. Which is why it’s also such a vital part of the app! Simple takes a lot of unnecessary worries and calculations related to hydration off your shoulders. Just use the in-app Liquid Intake Tracker to stay focused on your daily hydration goal!
