Drink more water with the Waterlogged app! 

Because not everything can be about #DishRaggs (as much as I'd like it to be), I'm sharing a new app (new to me anyway) that I LOVE! It's the perfect & healthy way to kick off the 2017! We all know drinking enough water helps our skin look brighter, our hair softer and our hangovers less aggressive, yet we still struggle to drink enough! 

Alas, I introduce you to the Waterlogged app! I copied this handy dandy cheat sheet from SlenderKitchen.com to give you an idea how much water you should drink on a daily basis. Obvioulsy drink more if you excercise, and if you live in a high altitude, but this is a good baseline formula! 

Here's a link to the Waterlogged app http://waterlog.gd/


Here's the a slightly more detailed formula: 

  1. Your weight: The first step to knowing how much water to drink everyday is to know your weight. The amount of water a person should drink varies on their weight, which makes sense because the more someone weighs the more water they need to drink. A two hundred pound man and 100 pound woman require different amounts of water every day.
  2. Multiply by 2/3: Next you want to multiple your weight by 2/3 (or 67%) to determine how much water to drink daily. For example, if you weighed 175 pounds you would multiple that by 2/3 and learn you should be drinking about 117 ounces of water every day.
     
  3. Activity Level: Finally you will want to adjust that number based on how often you work out, since you are expelling water when you sweat. You should add 12 ounces of water to your daily total for every 30 minutes that you work out. So if you work out for 45 minutes daily, you would add 18 ounces of water to your daily intake.
