How To Calculate Optimum Water Intake, From Joel Harper (VIDEO)

Celebrity fitness trainer Joel Harper is an advocate of keeping your body and mind well hydrated, and he had a few great tips to share with us.

Joel recommends scattering your water intake throughout the day so that your body can gradually adjust to the fluid levels. "We aren't camels!" he laughed.
