It's no secret that water is healthier for you than soda. That being said, it's amazing to see just how much of a difference you will see, from making the switch from soda to more water.
Experts tell us we should stick to 8x8 rule when drinking water, that means eight 8 ounce glasses per day. Even though that sounds like a lot, our body needs that much to stay healthy. Water is your body's principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue and organ in your body needs water to work properly. For example, water: Gets rid of wastes through urination, perspiration and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and protects sensitive tissues
Lack of water can lead to dehydration — a condition that occurs when you don't have enough water in your body to carry out normal functions. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired.
So, we know we need to drink a lot of water, but is there even a big difference that we're drinking soda instead? The answer is yes.
If you make the switch from soda to water you will notice a long list of things changing in your body, for the better.
