Recipe for water
According to Doc Reams, unless you are obese, you should drink half your weight in ounces. So if you weigh 180 lbs, you should drink 90 ounces, or 2.5 liters or so.
The color of your urine should always be barely tinted yellow. Barely!.
The exception would obviously be first thing in the morning or a diet/supplement influence. Vit B makes for an interesting yellow, beets will give an off tint of red (scary sometimes).
That quantity of water should be taken over the whole day, with equal quantities every half hour.
He also recommended a bit of fresh yellow lemon juice in your water a couple times per day. Juice, coffee, etc.. does not count as water.
Dehydration is one issue, lack of washing out our insides is something else. Reams recommended distilled water. It strips out everything. Water should not be your source of elements.
OH IF A MAN TRIED
TO TAKE HIS TIME ON EARTH
AND PROVE WHAT A MAN IS WORTH
I WONDER WHAT WOULD HAPPEN
TO THIS WORLD
