How Much Water Should I Drink?
Drinking water is very important on The Liquid Amino Diet because it helps flush out the fat cells. For many years the general rule of thumb has been to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. With the Liquid Amino Diet protocol we recommend drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water each day. While doing some research I visited wisegeek.com and found the following.
“The latest new conventional wisdom from the field of sports medicine holds that you should drink daily half your body weight in ounces of water. That is, if you weight 120 pounds, you should drink 60 ounces of water every day, or seven and a half cups. If you weigh 180 pounds, you should drink 90 ounces of water daily, or eleven cups and another few sips. Beverages containing caffeine should not be considered part of your daily water, since caffeine is a diuretic and will actually flush fluids from your system”
While on the Liquid Amino Diet protocol it is important to drink half your body weight in ounces, but it also a great guideline for the rest of your life. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and keeping those toxins flushed out of your system. You can also try adding lemon to help with water retention.
