A food estimate is to take your body weight in punds and divide that number in half. That gives you the number of ounces of water per day that you need to drink. For example, if you weight 160punds, you should drink at least 80 ounces of water per day. If you exercise you should drink another eight ounce glass of water for every 20 minuts you are active. If you drink alcohol, you should drink at least an equal amount of water.
When you are traveling on an airplane, it is good to drink eight ounces of water for every hour you are on board the plane. If you live in an arid climate, you should add another two servings per day. As you can see, your daily need for water can add up to quite a lot. Twenty percent of water ned will come from the foods you eat. The rest of your water need should come from the beverage you drink. Water is that best choice. Sodas have a lot of sugar in them, so if you drink sodas, you may take in more calories than you need. Herbal teas that aren't diuretic are fine. Spots drinks contain electrolytes and may be beneficial, just look out for added sugar and calories that you don't need. Juices are good because they have vitamins and nutrients.
Caffeinated beverages will also add to your daly water need. Even though caffeine is a diuretic, if you regularly consume caffeine, your body will regulate itself to that diuretic effect.

Symptoms of mild dehydration include chronic pains in joints and muscles, lower back pain, headaches and constipation. A strong odor to your urine, along with a yellow or amber color indicates that you may not be getting enough water. Note that riboflavin, a B vitamin. Thirst is an obvious sign of dehydration and in fact, you need water long before you feel thirsty.

With such variety of tastes, it's hard to believe anyone can dislike them all. Also remember that tastes change as you age and therefore things you detested in your youth (like brussel sprouts) may be a lot more palatable now! Try a different fruit / and vegetable each week until you find some you enjoy.

Don't be fooled, you could find healthy eating better for your budget. Fruit and vegetables (excluding exotic imported ones) are surprisingly cheap. An average banana costs 20p-less than most bars of chocolate / crisps from the vending machine and provides more in the way of nourishment for less calories.
Choose fresh fruit and vegetables in season, not only are they cheaper they will also be most flavoursome and at their best.
Markets also tend to be cheaper than supermarkets, particularly if you catch them when they packing up for the day.
Alternatively opt for supermarket branded tinned or frozen fruit and vegetables.

Look out for canned, frozen and juiced fruit and vegetables. They are just as nutritious. Buying your fruit and vegetables in this way also means you have plenty to hand when you need it without having to spend time stocking up with fresh produce every few days. Healthy eating doesn't mean you can't make use of convenience foods.

To further drive home the healthy eating message, the Dept.of Health is introducing a new 5-A-Day logo initiative in spring 2003. The Dept. of Health' logo will clearly indicate the fruits and vegetables that contribute towords the 5 portions recommends you to eat each day. The logo will appear on fresh, frozen, tinned or dried fruit fruit and vegetables and will indicate how many portions the food will count as.
The criteria to use the logo is strict and aims to encourage you to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. In an effort to encourage healthy eating more research is being done by the Dept. of Health to help clear up confusion about what counts towords 5 a day and what doesn't several procesed foods with added salt, sugar and fat, despite containing fruit or vegetables will not at present qualify for the logo.
What stop you from getting 5 a day Time, Money, Dislike All fruit and vegetables?

# Zinc builds hair protein which helps to prevent hair loss. Meat and seafood are the foods highest in zinc.
# copper is involved in the pigmentation of hair. You can optimize your natural color with a diet with plenty of copper. Who needs hair dye and fake color! Shellfish, liver, fresh, vegetables, nuts, seeds and meat are all high in copper.
