The amount of water we drink can be seen both internally and externally. But, many find it hard to drink as much as recommended. It’s recommended you drink 64 ounces daily, more if you workout. Thankfully, there are numerous ways to up your water intake.
Fruit Infused Water
Adding fruit to your water is a great way to add some flavor. There are many combinations of fruit you can try. Some popular ones are: strawberry and lemon, lemon and cucumber, or strawberry and blueberry.
Another way of getting flavored water is buying it. Careful when it comes to this as many brands are filled with artificial sugars and preservatives. A great flavored water is hint water. This water has zero sweeteners, preservatives, calories or GMOs. You can buy them in bulk at Costco, so you always have some ready to go!
Sparkling water goes great with dinner. It is so easy to convince yourself this stuff is soda, especially if you buy the kind that comes in a can. Flavored sparkling water is also zero calories, and doesn’t have any added sweeteners or preservatives.
Chocolate milk is super hydrating, which is why it is often recommended after workouts.
Most fruits have tons of water in them. We’re talking to you: strawberries, watermelon, grapes, celery, and pineapple. So if you add some fruit to your day not only are you getting the vitamins and minerals, but you’re also getting some H2O!
