Frugal Fitness: A Free, Simple Solution

by Greg Landry, M.S. Exercise Physiologist

We often tend to overlook the simple solutions in life. Drinking lots of water to enhance our health and help with fitness and weight loss falls into that category. Unfortunately, many of the health problems associated with inadequate water consumption do not manifest until years or even decades later! Water is necessary for every- thing our body does. I like to think of it as liquid's the HEALTHIEST thing you can consume! Remember, you don't just need water when you feel fact, thirst is one of the signals that your body is dangerously low on water. You should rarely allow yourself to become thirsty. Drink 60+ ounces of water daily, plus an additional 10 ounces for every 25 pounds overweight. Try this to help with your water consumption; get a large plastic water bottle that you can drink from. Fill it with water and put it in the freezer overnight. Take it with you the next can drink cold water all day as it melts. Start drinkin'!
