5 Creative ways to make sure you drink enough water to lose the weight
Drink when you are hungry If you are middle aged or older, your body may mistake hunger for thirst. So everytime you get hungry, drink a glass of water. If your body was actually thirsty instead of hungry, that will satisfy your “hunger”. This is an excellent strategy for avoiding those in-between meal snacks that wreck your diet.
Use a straw Some people find that they take bigger gulps if they drink through a straw. You don’t have use a titanium straw like Beyonce, but try to use a reusable straw instead of a disposable straw. It’s better for the environment, and possibly better for your health. Disposable straws can have chemical residues on them.
Time yourself Set a timer to remind yourself to drink a glass of water. If you get 8 hours of sleep a night, plan to drink a glass of water 15 times during the day. To reach three liters, men will need to drink about a cup of water (200 Ml) per hour. Women will need to drink about ¾ of a cup (150 mL) of water per hour to reach 2.2 liters by the end of the day.
Get a drinking pal Find a friend or coworker that also wants to drink more water and agree to hold each other accountable.
Reward yourself It’s much easier to make a habit out of things you enjoy, so plan to give yourself a small reward at the end of each day and/or week that you meet your water consumption goal.
Drink the right amount of water – at the right time – and lose weight
