Drinking more water can help you stay full and control your weight.
Follow these easy tips to help you drink more water during the day.
Check the calories. Real water has zero calories. Always check the packaging label to see if a so-called water beverage has calories.
Drink tap. Whenever possible, opt for filtered tap water. It will save you money and reduce your exposure to toxins like Bisphenol-A (BPA), which may get into water sold or stored in plastic bottles.
Hydrate for health. Drinking water keeps your muscles hydrated so physical activity is easier and more effective. And drinking water before and during meals helps you fill up so you eat less.
Flavor it up. Find water tasteless and hard to drink? Toss in a little fruit. The fruit will add vitamins, antioxidants and flavor.
