Did you know that if you simply feel thirsty then you’re probably already dehydrated? Staying properly hydrated is actually rather difficult; most people pay attention to consuming the right amount of calories, and only eating when they’re hungry (which is a good rule!) but only drinking once you’re thirsty could lead to dehydration. Water is a very powerful thing. There is a reason that people can survive long fasts so long as they drink plenty of water. Your organs need it more than they need nutrients from food, so perhaps you should start paying more attention to it. If you dedicate just a month to drinking enough water a day, you could notice some major differences in your life. Here is what happens when you start drinking enough water.

You’ll retain water, at first

Don’t freak out! If you put on a few pounds when you first start drinking more water, don’t worry; you’re just retaining water because your body isn’t used to this fluid consumption yet. Your body will adjust, and you’ll lose the water weight.
