If you want to be healthy DRINK WATER.
If you want to (fill in the blank) DRINK WATER.
Sound familiar? This is something we have all heard before, and with good reason.
Water helps flush out toxins, gives you that much-needed boost of energy, and keeps you feeling full. Many times we mistake dehydration with a food craving. Whenever you feel a craving coming on — drink a big glass of water, and most of the time the craving will disappear.
Sounds simple, right? No. Let’s face it; water can be boring. It is flavorless, and though refreshing at times, most of us find it hard to drink as much as we should each day.
As you get used to drinking more water you will come to enjoy it as is. Until then, here’s how to make the water more palatable:
-Add frozen fruit. This will keep your water nice and cold and add some fruity flavor.
-A winning combo. Add a few cubes of watermelon and some fresh mint
-Make “spa water.” Adding in some sliced cucumbers and lemon, tastes super refreshing.
-Healthy lemonade. A squeeze of lemon juice and a little stevia makes a delicious and healthy lemonade.
-Naturally sweetened tea is delicious. All you need to do is brew your favorite cup of tea (such as green tea) and add some stevia or a little honey. Drink it hot or cold throughout the day.
With a fast coming up it is important to make sure you are properly hydrated at least a week before. With these tips it will be even easier to do. Before you know it, your water intake will go up and you won’t even realize you’ve been drinking water all along.
Happy water drinking!
