The secret to getting enough water in your day!

Daily water requirement, daily water intake, secret to drinking more water, how to drink more water, cleanse, how water helps the body, vanessamc246, the butterfly effect, change one thing change everything.Every day I drink all the water I need. I RARELY miss a day of my required water intake and usually have more.  How do I do this? What's my secret? I going to share it with you. I channel my college days!!  Let me explain.

Clean eating incorporates drinking lots of water.

Water should be the drink you reach for before anything else! It is critical your eating clean. Losing and maintaining weight depend on adequate hydration.

Our bodies our made up of about 75% water, and most of that percentage is stored in your skin. We need water to survive and to repair the body. It flushes out toxins, repairs sore muscles, regulates body temperature, keeps joints mobile, maintains tissue health, and can even stave off hunger. Sometimes, thirst disguises itself as hunger.

The simple formula to find out how much daily water intake you need:

Half your body weight in ounces of water each day.

This is A LOT of water. Even for the 120 pound person, this is 60 ounces of water. That's almost a half gallon of water!! Ease into your required amount if you are not used to having that much! The first few days are rough but once you get used to it this will seem like no big deal! I'm going to share some of my strategies on how to make sure you sip all day long!

To make sure I get my daily required intake, I drink a 16 oz. glass of water before each meal.

Here are some other strategies to get the water flowing:
  • Flavor water with lemon, fruit, vegetables, and herbs
  • Drink unsweetened sparkling water, regular or flavored
  • Fill up bottles with your daily water intake, then set your alarm at specified times during the day to drink that bottle
  • Mark a gallon jug or other bottles filled with water with an hours of the day timeline. So by 10:00, you must drink down to that marker, and by noon, the next marker and so on.
  • If all else fails, and I'm behind on my water for the day, here is my secret: 

What are your strategies to make sure you get the amount you need? Would love to hear them!
