WHY DO OUR BODY’S NEED WATER? Our body’s really do NEED water and it’s one of the things i have found most lacking in my clients regimen, and mine as well if i don’t pay attention to it. We can acquire some of the water required by the body through foods with a high water content, such as soups, tomatoes, oranges, but most come through drinking water and other beverages.
During everyday functioning, water is lost by the body, and this needs (emphasized) to be replaced. We notice that we lose water through activities such as sweating and urination, but water is lost even when breathing and while we sleep.
My Take on Fizzy Drinks

What your body really wants is Hydration.

Here’s How To Stay healthy
Opt for mineral water instead, as it contains minerals that can help you instead of acting to deplete the minerals you have. Better yet, simply drinks distilled or spring water when you find yourself craving a soda or cola. If the desire is still there hours later then you know it’s not due to dehydration and you might want to let yourself satisfy the craving once in awhile.

Perhaps it is the ubiquitous nature of water that means drinking enough each day is not at the top of many people’s lists of priorities.
