Imagine going a whole work or school day without drinking any fluid? This would be a challenge. The 7-9 hour fluid lacking day would leave one feeling quite dry and parched. Consider that a full night of fluid lacking sleep could use morning rehydration.
Drinking water is a fantastic, fresh start to the day. It’s simple and requires no preparation. Try starting each day by drinking 16-20 ounces of water – or simply count 20 swallows. A bottomless cup of coffee may be tempting this chilly time of year, but reach for that tall glass of water first. Savor sipping a warm, fresh coffee or tea brew after the rehydrating start to the day.
Looking for weight loss?
Consider starting each meal with that glass of water as a smart start to mealtime. According to a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, adults who drank a large glass of water before meals ate an average of 75 fewer calories during the meal. That can add up to 225 calories a day over three meals and 1/2 pound of weight loss each week!
