Good Day Alabama for March 18, 2013

Here is what you saw on today's show:

Most people have heard that they need to drink 8 cups of water every day to be healthy. And water is crucial to helping our bodies work right - so it's not surprising that water is responsible for 60% of our body weight. But do you really need to guzzle 8 cups a day? Our bodies lose water every day through the kidneys in the urine, from the lungs when we breathe, and through sweating. The typical person does lose about 8 to 12 cups of water a day through these routes but, as it turns out, there are many ways you can replace that loss. Milk , Juice, Fruit, Veggies are some foods that will help you restore lost water.
