For most people, drinking water is the best way to stay hydrated and as part of a balanced lifestyle. At its best, you can also lose some weight too, as water helps supress cravings.
Here are some tips to drink more water or liquids (at least 2 liters), especially if you dislike it.
1. Flavor it up
Add fruits (fresh or frozen), cucumber, mint. Squeeze the fruit for a real boost in flavor.
Cucumbers, citrus fruits, melons, pineapple, melon, mango, kiwi and mint flavor water almost immediately. Apples, cinnamon, fresh ginger root, and rosemary need an overnight soak in the fridge.
Lemon or lime infused water is one of the easiest and most convenient way to make infused water. It has vitamin C, is good for weight loss, skin, helps with detox and more benefits. Squeeze the lemon or add lemon/ lime slices in your water.
You can also use frozen fruits – frozen berries will subtly infuse the water. You can make fruit-infused cubes in advance.
Get creative and play with the ingredients:
2. Try sparkling water
You name it: bubble water, sparkling water, club soda, soda water, seltzer water, and fizzy water. Drinking carbonated water can help you stay more hydrated throughout the day. Many people find that carbonated water tastes better and is easier to drink than regular tap or spring water, especially if served cold.
3. Eat more water-rich fruits and veggies
Most fruits and veggies have a high water intake, and they also have fiber that will reduce the feeling of hunger. Cucumbers have the highest water intake (about 95%). Other choices include spinach, broccoli, dark greeny leaves, tomatoes, watermelons, cantaloupe, peaches and apricots.
4. Drink other begerages – such as tea or soup, fruit and vegetable juices or smoothies, coconut milk or other vegetable milk (such as almond or coconut milk).
5. Restore your electrolites supply
Make sure, especially when outdoors in the heat or exercising, that you include enough salts with a sports drink, formulated both to hydrate and restore the electrolites balance.
Here are some fruits and drinks that can help you replenish your electrolyte stores such as: bananas, avocado, fruit juice, watermelon.
You can also check for professional options, usually designed for people who practice sport.
