(HealthDay News) -- Without enough water, your body can't function properly, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Healthy people typically meet their fluid needs by drinking with meals and when thirsty.

The CDC suggests:

  • Carry a water bottle with you.
  • Choose water instead of sugar-sweetened beverages.
  • Choose water when eating out.
  • Add a wedge of lime or lemon to your water to improve its taste.
