Are you drinking enough water?

Alexandra Osellame - Bayleaf Clinical Nutritionist - BHSc(Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine)

Water!!! Drinking enough water is vital for good health!

But how much water do you actually need to drink everyday?!? Lucky for you, our clinical nutritionist Alex, has the golden rule! You need to times your body weight by 0.03. So, If you weigh 70kg, you need 2.1 litres of water

(70 x 0.03 = 2.1)

However.... for every cup of coffee or glass of alcohol you need to add an extra glass of water (250ml). If you weigh 70kg and have 2 cups coffee, you need 2.1 litres + 500ml (250ml x 2) which is a total of 2.6 litres of water! To freshen up your water, try adding these favourites: - Cucumber - Lemon - Oranges - Mint


Clean, fresh great tasting water can be very hard to source.
