Drink when you’re truly thirsty. Pace yourself.Over-hydration isn’t necessarily about the amount of water you drink overall.It’s about whether your fluid intake overwhelms your body’s ability to deal with it. A healthy human kidney should be able to process and excrete up to 10 liters of water per day. While you certainly shouldn’t try to reach that capacity, a couple of liters of water spread evenly throughout the day will be just fine.

You might have heard some myths about hydration, such as:

MYTH: Your urine should be perfectly clear.

MYTH: If you wait until you’re thirsty to drink, it’s too late and you’ll probably shrivel up like a prune.

MYTH: Real “fitness people” guzzle water like they just stumbled out of the Sahara.

None of these are true.

Trust your body to give you thirst cues — it’s had millions of years to figure out this water thing.

p.s. Anyone an avid tea drinker? I need some help with Fridays post.
