Вот что происходит, когда вы пьете воду натощак

Water is the most important element that supports life on our planet. To be healthy and look good, you need to drink it in sufficient quantity for the body. Formula for water consumption for women: weight ∗ 0.03 + load in hours ∗ 0.4 = water in liters. For example: a woman weighs 60 kg, plays 1 hour a day: 60 kg ∗ 0.03 + 1 ∗ 0.4 = 2.2 l. The formula for men is: 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.
