10 Water Benefits

We’ve all heard that water is healthy and that we should drink at least 8 glasses of 8 ounces  throughout the day and blablabla, but why? As a personal trainer Salem Oregon  I’m always worried my clients aren’t getting enough when they are away from my gym. I make sure to explain the importance of water as they work to reach their goals. Aside from the obvious hydration and not dying reason, here are 10 reasons I give them to keep up on the water intake.

10 Benefits of Water From Mike Walsh Personal Trainer Salem Oregon

  1. It helps you feel full.  Many people mistake thirst for hunger, which adds extra calories to the diet.  So, drink water before your meals and you’ll eat less!

  2. It boosts metabolism.

  3. Helps digestion.

  4. Reduces risk of bladder, colon, and breast cancer.
