It is important to stay hydrated especially during the hotter months. Our bodies are made up of 60-70% water, so we need to constantly replenish our water supply. Fat camps do not teach the importance of hydration and why we need to keep drinking water.
We are always looking for that high sugar and calorie filled soda, juice or sports drink .The easiest and quickest way to determine your hydration is to look at your urine. If it’s a light yellow then your body is properly hydrated, but if it’s a dark yellow then you are most likely dehydrated, so drink more water. If you catch yourself constantly running to the bathroom and your urine is clear, then you are probably drinking too much water, or you may need to excrete that water through sweat.
Fat camps may encourage campers to keep drinking water because of their workouts, but they aren’t necessarily teaching its importance. Learning about these essentials if very important because it helps our bodies’ function properly. Fat camps do not provide support guidance to their campers as they losing weight and how to continue losing weight when they leave camp.
