Michelle Obama Wants You to Drink More Water

Posted:

We all know that drinking water is essential for our bodies...especially for hydration.

But First Lady Michelle Obama says H 2 O can sometimes get drowned out.

She recently launched a 'Drink Up' campaign encouraging everyone to drink more water.

She says it's the single best thing we can do to improve our health.

Shelley Porter, a clinical dietitian says water requirement is based on your body's size.

Take your weight, divide it by two, then divide that number by eight for how many cups.

Although we know it's important to stay hydrated, we are also helping every system in our bodies.

"So, not only what we think just quenching thirst for example but it's going to flush out every system so the kidney, your heart, your respiration, heart and lungs," says Shelley Porter, Clinical Dietitian.

Porter also says tap water is just as healthy as bottled water...and it's more affordable.
