Are you drinking enough or too much?

Are you drinking enough or too much?

I picked this one up this morning from Active Therapy’s daily update.  For sometime now the importance of being properly hydrated in general and in sporting activities in particular but there is a big difference in consuming enough water and pouring the stuff down your neck with any thought. The effects of dehydration are well covered but the effects of over hydration aren’t spoken of with anything like the same frequency.

    The Noakes book actually changed the way that I think if hydration. I do think that a lot of people have taken both sides too far – simply they you needn’t drink as much as you think.

    I’ve been playing around with it and noticed just what you’re saying Terry.

    We tell our massage clients that you need to drink half your body weight in ounces of water every day. If you weight 200 pounds, you need to drink 100 oz of water. It’s makes sense and helps put it in perspective. Feel free to visit our website at
