Last time I went to visit my doctor for migraines, she attributed them to a few contributing factors, including dehydration. She told me a rule of thumb for the minimum amount of water to drink a day: take your weight in pounds and divide it by two — that’s how many ounces to drink.
Before that, I had only heard that everyone should have eight glasses every day. So which is true?
There are also scientists saying that merely being body-conscious and drinking when thirsty can guide healthy drinking habits, as long as you’re drinking extra water when sweating.
Bottom line— it’s never a bad thing to remind yourself to drink plenty of water throughout the day!
