Q. I know I’m supposed to drink 8-10 cups of water a day – but I feel it’s too much for me.
I try to drink 8 cups a day but I just can’t continue with it long, I just find myself going to the bathroom every 30 minutes. Any idea?
|A1||when people thought of this genius theory of drinking 10 cups a day they didn’t take in consideration the amount of water we get from our food, the idea that people working construction need more then 8 cups, that people that work in an air conditioned office and don’t tend to move around too much don’t perspire as well as construction workers. They just took the average data- we loose this amount of water, so we need to replace it. You should listen to your body and not to wise guys.|
|A2||gatorade is also good,or powerade.they keep you hydrated,and are good for you too.but still drink 4 to 6 cups of water.|
Q. Is it true that more cups of coffee can help avoid snack attacks??
I love having a snack between meals- but way too much. Is it true that black coffee can replace the feeling that a snack gives and even calm the fake hunger feeling for a while??
|A1||fruits- not very dietetic but at least healthy. carrots can be a good idea too. if you'll eat healthy snacks during the day you won't eat much at lunch and dinner time.|
|A2||Thanks guys...what do u use as "snack"??|
|A3||you cam use anthing i.e. water,soda and juice,but coffee has alot of caffine,you can also try a couple of crackers (plain).or even a piece of candy or gum.|
