Water Tips

They say that we all need 6 to 8 glasses (48 to 64 ounces) of water every day to be healthy. I’ve never had a problem drinking that much water, but I have heard a lot of people complain that they are having trouble “getting their water in.” Here are a couple of tips to make sure you get enough:

  • Every morning I start the day with a trip to the restroom and a full glass of water. I’m always thirsty when I first wake up, so drinking a glass of water is the first thing on my mind.

  • I like to have a glass of water with each meal and snack. That’s a total of five glasses of water.

  • I like to drink water when I exercise; usually a glass before and a glass afterward.

  • Use a bottle that measures four glasses (32 ounces). I like to use a Gatorade bottle. I only need to drink two bottles of water to fulfill my water for the day.

Whether that much water in necessary to aid weight loss is still debatable. I know that I feel more full when I make sure I drink enough water. That is all I need to know to keep doing it.
