This topic may sound more about lifestyle than nutrition, but it’s incredibly important for athletes, who in the quest for health, strength, speed, and looking good naked, often do more harm than good by running their adrenal glands into the ground through over-training and inadequate rest.

Water is needed by the body to transport nutrients and oxygen to cells, lubricate joints, remove toxins, regulate body temperature and bowel movements, and protect tissues and organs. If water is essential to survival (we can only live a couple days without it) and...
