If you regularly feel as though you aren't drinking enough water, you might want to check out this infographic on dehydration effects -- especially those on your health. From SDFJ.org, the chart 'Got Water? Why Dehydration is Making You Sick and Fat' does not mince words.

Being dehydrated is bad for you in a vast variety of ways. Given that the human body consists of 75% water, it's important to replenish by drinking around eight 8 ounce glasses of water a day, and even more if you are exercising, breastfeeding or ill. The harmful dehydration effects include fatigue, high blood pressure, asthma and allergies, skin disorders, high cholesterol, digestive disorders, bladder or kidney problems, constipation, joint pain or stiffness, weight gain and premature aging.
