Drink More to Lose More
I’m no expert on weight loss. All I can say is the older I get the harder it is to lose weight and keep it off. No matter what plan you follow, one thing is consistent: drink more water. Any health expert will tell you hydration and weight loss go hand-in-hand. Here are our top drink more = lose more tips:
- Drink a glass of water before each meal
Often we eat when really we are dehydrated. Plus, drinking a glass before meals can make you feel fuller and that means you’ll eat less.
- Ditch the sugary drinks and replace them with water
If you get bored of just water, infuse it with fruit slices or herbs for a zero calorie drink.
- Drink it ice cold
When you drink cold water, your body uses extra calories to warm the water to body temperature!
- Drink a lot and drink often
Make sure you get enough. Drinking water throughout the day will keep you feeling full and you will feel more energized when you’re properly hydrated.
- Go high tech
Put your smart phone to work and set an alarm reminding you to fill your glass with water another time
- Invest in a bottle you love so you have water wherever you go
Our new filter bottle is a great option: you’ll have filtered water anywhere you go! Even that gross water fountain won’t be a problem if you have one of our new filter bottles. The pleated filter inside the bottle reduces lead, chlorine, cysts, and over 99% of bacteria found in water. Plus, it boasts the longest-lasting filter on the market. The filter lasts for 80 gallons—the equivalent of 640 disposable plastic bottles.
