Drink 8 glasses of water every day - 10 food rules - Women's Health & Fitness

You should drink eight glasses of water every day

This piece of health advice has been around for years, without any substance, although many health professionals swear by water to flush out the kidneys and keep hunger pains at bay.
However, in a paper published in the American Journal of Physiology, it was found that drinking eight glasses of water each day is not a medical recommendation, nor is there any scientific health benefits behind the advice.

According to physician Heinz Valtin from Dartmouth Medical School in the US, “I have found no scientific proof that absolutely every person must drink at least eight glasses of water a day.”

Ideally, be your own judge on your water intake. If you are exercising regularly, then drink water before, during and after your workout. And if you find that you’re feeling tired, hungry or irritable, a glass of water may perk you up.
