WATER AND YOUR WEIGHT
Just one glass of water may help shut down hunger pains.
Making a few small changes to your diet, like replacing one, 140 calorie sugared beverage a day with zero-calorie water, can make a big difference. You could trim over 50,000 calories from your diet per year — that’s equal to 65 cups of sugar! So, drink up.
HYDRATE FOR ENERGY
Lack of hydration can trigger daytime fatigue.
Staying hydrated isn’t just about how much you drink. It’s about what you drink. Your body is made up of 50–75% water. Lessening that percentage can result in dehydration, causing:
- Loss of concentration
Even if you aren’t thirsty, proper hydration is the key to your health and to lasting energy. Sip water all day long.
DRINK TO A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Live healthier one glass at a time.
The benefits of water can go beyond just proper hydration. Making a simple decision to drink more water may significantly impact your health and contribute to:
- Weight loss:
Swapping sugared beverages for water can reduce your caloric intake and help you lose weight as part of a healthy lifestyle.
- Proper digestion:
Water aids in the digestion of your food as it serves as a medium.
- Improved physical endurance:
Drinking enough water helps maintain physical performance by helping to sustain endurance and strength in adults.
