Did you know that by just increasing the amount of water you consume on a daily basis - and sticking with it - you can actually look and feel slimmer in just a few days?


I bet that got your attention!

So how is this possible?

While, when you don't get enough water, your body holds onto it in all those common "trouble" spots -  the thighs, ankles, and midsection. You look and feel bloated.

By increasing how much water you drink on a daily basis, your body will come to expect it, and let go of all the extra you've been holding onto.

How much to have? Here’s the formula:

1 ounce per kilogram of body weight

So do the calculation.

Take your weight in pounds, then switch it to kilos by dividing the number of pounds by 2.2

Then switch to ounces to see how much water you need to drink.

 

Also, pay attention to when you're thirsty.


When you're thirsty it's too late!

Another benefit to staying hydrated?

Decreased cravings.

Research shows often when we think we're hungry, we're actually thirsty. So always have a glass of water first. (Take that nighttime Doritos cravings! )

Wait, there's more ...

Not only can increasing your water decrease the bloat and cut cravings, it can also:

  • Regulate your body’s temperature.
  • Help the digestive system.
  • Make you feel more alert. (Think brain fog!)

 

Add Some Punch


Turn plain old water into a flavourful experience. Here are some ways to add some punch and keep you chugging.

  • Slices of cucumber
  • Orange wedges
  • Shredded ginger
  • Mint leaves
  • Chopped strawberries
  • Splashes of grapefruit juice
  • Lemon slices

  • Celery sticks
  • Ice cubes made from orange juice
Happy drinking!
