Do you ever get a headache? Or when you think you are hungry you reach for the first cookie you see in sight?
These may be signs that your body is telling you that you are thirsty!
When you have a headache instead of caffeine of popping pills try drinking a a couple classes of water – wait and then see how you feel. A headache is a sign of dehydration.
The majority of the time when you “think” you are hungry – you really are NOT! Again, try drinking two glasses of water – wait and then see how you feel.
This would be a great simple goal for the New Year!
If water is boring try adding some flavor with a to-go powder packet or make your own solution with 100% juice (8 cups water to 1 cup juice). If you have a non-calorie carbonated or caffeinated beverage it may be a diuretic so you will have to drink more water.
Lipton Ice Tea To-Go
The Lipton Ice Tea To-Go packets are my new favorites and I don’t even really care for tea. This one is a green tea blueberry pomegranate flavor – very light and refreshing. Some of the other powder packets are just too sweet but Lipton does a good job.
64 ounces of water is a good basic goal to start with – but remember if you do exercise or any strenuous work, you will need more water. Remember everyone is different and some may need more or less according to body size.
