#5 Hydration

Staying properly hydrated is essential for your overall health and well-being, as well as for supporting your physical and cognitive performance during the DRMN BG™ Challenge. This document provides guidelines and tips for ensuring adequate hydration by drinking a minimum of 1 gallon (128 ounces) of water every day.

Hydration Guidelines:

  1. Aim for a minimum of 1 gallon (128 ounces) of water daily:
    • Adjust this target as needed based on factors such as your age, gender, activity level, climate, and individual needs.
    • Spread your water intake evenly throughout the day to maintain consistent hydration levels.
  2. Monitor your hydration status:
    • Pay attention to signs of dehydration, such as dark urine, dry mouth, dizziness, or fatigue.
    • Keep track of your daily water intake using a water bottle with measurements or a hydration tracking app.
  3. Choose water as your primary source of hydration:
    • Opt for plain water, infused water with fruits or herbs, or unsweetened sparkling water to stay hydrated without consuming added sugars or artificial additives.
    • Limit the consumption of sugary drinks, such as sodas and fruit juices, which can contribute to weight gain and negatively impact your overall health.

Hydration Tips:

  1. Start your day with water:
    • Begin your morning by drinking a glass of water to kickstart your hydration for the day.
  2. Make water more appealing:
    • Enhance the flavor of your water by adding fresh fruits, vegetables, or herbs, such as lemon, cucumber, or mint.
    • Use a water bottle with a built-in infuser to make it easier to create and enjoy flavored water on the go.
  3. Set reminders to drink water:
    • Use a smartphone app, an alarm, or a smart water bottle to remind you to drink water at regular intervals throughout the day.
  4. Carry a water bottle with you:
    • Keep a reusable water bottle with you at all times to ensure you have easy access to water and can stay hydrated throughout the day.

By prioritizing hydration and consuming a minimum of 1 gallon (128 ounces) of water daily during the DRMN BG™ Challenge, you'll support your physical and cognitive performance, enhance your energy levels, and contribute to your overall health and well-being. 

Staying properly hydrated is a key component of achieving your dream and maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
