Fit Calculator: Water Works

Do you sit and wonder to yourself, in your quiet moments alone "Am I drinking enough water?" If not, I'm here to tell you that it is a good question to ask and finding the answer couldn’t be easier. Check out FitSugar’s new water calculator Water Works. It’ll tell you how much water you should be drinking daily.

Hydration is important to good health and the majority of Americans are chronically under hydrated, meaning most of us are mildly dehydrated all of the time. That might not seem so bad but being mildly dehydrated can impair brain function – like making it hard to do basic math. Also, we are so under hydrated as a population, we experience dehydration as hunger pains – how confused have our bodies become?

Fit’s Tip: If your mouth feels dry and you're thirsty, you are already mildly dehydrated. I take my cues on hydration from competitive cyclists – Drink before you’re thirsty and avoid the catch up game with hydration.
