[Archives May 2011] It’s hot out! Are you drinking enough water? Remember the basic recommendation is 1/2 your body weight in ounces. So, at 150 pounds one would need to consume 75 ounces. This is base line. With exercise or this dry heat the volume goes up. During these summer like months I usually try to increase the volume by an additional 50%. If you have not yet gotten a good filter system we can help. Other wise spring water, possibly with a pinch of Celtic salt, is the way to go.
