Hydration Myths Busted (Plus the Actual Facts) w/ Whitley Atkins

How much water do you drink a day? How do you figure out how much is enough? We’re always being told 8 cups a day is the golden rule for hydration, but does that apply to everyone? Speaking from experience, I would be running to the bathroom every 2 seconds if I drank 8 cups a day. Today we’re digging a little deeper with Whitley Atkins, who conducts research in thermoregulation and hydration. Scroll down to see what we’re talking about! 

In this episode, we’ll talk about:

  • Whitleys very simple (and scientific) strategy for determining your hydration needs
  • The signs and symptoms of poor hydration (there are more than you think)
  • The surprising truth about whether or not coffee is ACTUALLY a diuretic
  • Why the 64 ounces of water per day equation doesn’t work for everyone
  • Whether or not feeling thirsty means “it’s too late” when it comes to dehydration
  • If it’s EVER possible for thirst to be mistaken for hunger
  • Practical things you can start doing TODAY to get more hydration
  • & MORE!
