Every day your body needs about 2.8 liters of fluid. You get about a liter from your diet and there is about 300 milliliters in all kinds of processes in your body. Water, a super drink. Then there is still 1.5 liters left that you have to drink. Too much? No time? These tips make it easy to drink more. Cold water drinking.
If you always have water at your fingertips, you can easily drink more. Put a glass on your bedside table at home and take care of a can on your desk at work.
Put a bottle of water in your bag every morning so that you are never without water. Of course, you can refill an old mineral water bottle every time, but if you buy a nice bottle, you might get extra sense to always have it with you. Wash your water bottle regularly with detergent or soda, so it stays clean.
It is easier to maintain a healthy habit if it becomes part of your daily routine. It can help to take a glass of water at regular intervals. For example, the first one immediately after you get up and the last one before you go to sleep. Take a drink with every meal and every snack.
With fresh fruit and herbs you turn ordinary tap water into a fresh thirst quencher that is a lot healthier than fruit juice or soft drinks. Do you like bubbles, use spring water. Simply add some cut fruit and herbs to your choice of water. Put the jug in the fridge and try to drink it completely empty the same day. Drink plenty of clean water.
Give your water more taste with:
Drink more water in hot weather. With homemade ice cubes you make your water cool and just a bit more festive. If you at least make ice cubes with some extras such as fruit, herbs or a layer of juice. For example, place pieces of fruit or small fruits (raspberries, currants, blueberries, pomegranate seeds) in an ice cube form. Add some finely cut mint or basil for a green accent. Fill the boxes with water and put the mold in the freezer. You can make striped ice cubes by filling the molds with water for a third. Put them in the freezer for a few hours. Then add a layer of fruit juice or syrup and put the ice cubes back in the freezer. When the colored layer is frozen, pour another layer of water over it and the mold can be put back into the freezer. The result: cheerful ice cubes with a colored layer in the middle.
Coffee or tea - but the versions without sugar and milk - contain no calories and you can simply add to your daily fluid intake. That coffee and tea would withdraw water from your body is a myth. Caffeine makes sure that you have to go to the toilet earlier, but you will not be peeing anymore. Healthy adults can drink about four cups of coffee or ten cups of tea every day without any problems. Are you sensitive to caffeine? Then choose green tea, which contains half less caffeine than the black variant. There is no caffeine in herbal tea at all.
You can also vary with low-fat milk or alternatives to dairy products such as soy milk, almond milk, hemp milk or rice milk. Or take a glass of fruit or fruit juice. Of course there are calories in this, unlike water and coffee and tea without sugar and milk. If you want to pay attention to the line, it is better to keep a glass with you from time to time.
The moisture that your body needs does not only come from drinking but also from food. Approximately one liter of the required moisture 'eats' you. You increase this amount by choosing products that contain a lot of water. This is how the watermelon lives up to its name, it consists of more than 90 percent water. A salad is full of water and contains only a few calories, if you leave out the greasy dressing. When you eat out, start the meal with a clear soup. Broth is mainly moist and makes sure you are full faster.
Are you still forgetting to take your bottle or are you simply not getting something to drink? Then set an alarm at certain times, for example on your telephone, which reminds you that it is time for a glass of water. There are also apps that warn you and you can keep track of your water intake, such as Water Daily, Waterlogged and Water your body.
