How to Get the Healthy Body and Mind You Want 3

Continuing with our series of strategies, we’ll talk today about water and water-rich foods.

As you know, water is the basic and major component of all living matter; and it is the largest single component of your body. For instance, your brain is 76% water (and I’m not saying it as an insult! J); the lungs are 90% water, blood is 84%, and plasma 98%.

There is no successful diet or exercise plan without the right amount of water in it. Main body functions such as digestion, circulation, and excretion cannot happen without it. It is used to carry and distribute nutrients to all vital body substances, plays a crucial role in keeping the necessary body temperature, and serves as a building material for growth and repair.

If you want to be and stay healthy, you need to drink above half your body weight in ounces a day… for example, if you weigh 120 pounds, you should be drinking 80 ounces of water daily.

Also, see that at least 70% of your diet consists of water-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables (and know that 1/5 of your daily intake of water comes from what you eat).

Here’s a list of ten fruits and vegetables for you to consider including in your diet:

Cucumber, 96% water

Tomatoes, 95% water

Spinach, 93% water

Mushrooms, 92% water

Melon, 91% water

Broccoli, 90% water

Brussel sprouts, 88% water

Oranges, 86% water

Apples, 85% water

Blueberries, 84% water

Next week we’ll cover the topic of essential oils and their importance to your diet and overall health.

Until then, stay strong!
