10 goals challenge - Drink 8 glasses of fluid

Emma White - Nutritionist

Goal of the day – Drink 8 glasses of fluid

Fluid in the body plays an essential role in lots of vital processes, including temperature regulation, delivery of nutrients to our cells, joint and eye lubrication, saliva production, toxin removal and organ health. Not drinking enough can result in a lack of energy, headaches and other unpleasant effects. It's crucial to maintain a good supply of fluid – at least six to eight 200-250ml glasses a day. While pure water is the best choice, tea, coffee, squash, sugar-free drinks and milk count too. You can check how well hydrated you are by the colour of your pee – a pale straw colour is what you're aiming for!
