Water has many vital functions in the body and we can only survive 2 or 3 days without it. Dehydration occurs when the body’s water content is too low and symptoms include headaches and confusion. In sport and fitness, dehydration will significantly impair performance. Although most of us don’t experience dehydration symptoms on a daily basis, we might not be drinking the optimal amount. This printable water tracker helps you to keep track of how much you drink and increase your fluid intake if necessary.
Daily fluid intake
Women need 2-2.5 litres of fluid a day and men need about 3 litres. Some of this comes from the food we eat but most of it is from fluid intake. Although we often hear the advice to drink 8 glasses of water every day, there hasn’t been any scientific research into whether we need that quantity of pure water versus other fluid. It’s unclear where the advice originally came from. However, as water is natural and calorie free, it seems logical that it would be the best choice of drink for health and wellbeing.
