Ways to Increase Your Water Intake This Summer.
Your body is made up predominantly of water. It is therefore important to keep your stocks up so that you are supporting a healthy functioning body. If your body is dehydrated it doesn’t work efficiently and to burn calories, your body needs water. Hence, it goes without saying that a lack of water intake makes the weight loss process slow down.
The following are steps to increase your water intake throughout the day.
Drink Herbal Tea and Sparkling Water These drinks do count towards your water intake quota. The drinks filled with caffeine, sugar, sweeteners and other additives that don’t.
You have got a free pass to take up your intake of green tea or peppermint tea throughout the day, and stock up on some nice relaxation teas for the evening such as chamomile tea.
Sparkling water can feel like a treat when you have cut down on drinking regular soft drink. Add a splash of lemon or lime juice, or even a splash of pure maple syrup for extra flavour.
Keep a Water Bottle with You Always It is important to drink consistently on the go. Purchase yourself a water bottle that you can take everywhere with you. Before you leave the house, fill it up with water and sip it throughout the day.
Choose Fruits and Vegetables with a High-Water Content There are many favourite fruits and vegetables that are mostly made of water. For instance, a tomato is around 94% water, while a grapefruit is around 91%. Cucumbers, radish, zucchini, cabbage, lettuce, and celery are vegetables high in water. The fruits are watermelon, pineapple, rockmelon, apples, tomatoes, peaches, and strawberries.
Make Your Water Fun You can add things like fruit or chopped cucumber and mint, or a squeeze of fresh lemon, orange or lime to your water.
A good option is to freeze the bottle overnight if you prefer your water icy cold.
