Good hydration is essential for good health. Your body is 92 percent water, so if you don’t get enough you’re going to be in trouble!
You should drink a minimum of six to eight 8-ounce glasses of clean filtered water every day you are on The Daniel Plan (and every day for the rest of your life for that matter). One among many reasons drinking this much water every day is important has to do with detoxification.
Toxins are ultimately excreted through your stool and urine. When you don’t drink enough water, you become constipated and have darker urine and urinate less frequently. These are signs that your detoxification system is not operating optimally and your heath and mind will suffer as a consequence.
Drinking water will also help you reduce withdrawal symptoms from addictive substances in your diet (like sugar and caffeine) and food allergens you may experience on the program.
Unfortunately much of our water supply is contaminated with microbes, pesticides, plastics, metals, chlorine, fluoride (yes fluoride) and other toxins. So drinking water out of the tap is less than ideal.
