Water is the most important element that supports life on our planet. To be healthy and look good, you need to drink it in an amount sufficient for the body. Formula of water consumption for women: weight * 0.03 + load in hours * 0.4 = water in liters. For example: a woman weighs 60 kg, does sports for 1 hour a day: 60 kg * 0.03 + 1 * 0.4 = 2.2 liters. Formula for men: weight * 0,04 + load in hours * 0,6 = water in liters. Unfortunately, according to the latest polls of sociologists, only a small part of the population adheres to this norm.
