Simple Ways to Get More Water in Your Diet

Get More Water In Your DietWe all know we should drink more water because EVERYONE tells us all the time. Or, at least it can feel that way when you're not big on drinking water! If you're sick or have a headache, your mom says to drink more water. If you're dieting, you're supposed to drink more water to help you feel fuller. Even if you just had a relaxing massage, you're supposed to drink water to help flush out the toxins that were just rubbed loose. OK GUYS, we get it! More water!

So how do you get it down the hatch if you're just not that into it? Here are 5 quick and easy tips:

1. Just chug it. Use your college days as inspiration and finish the whole glass in one go. Nothing's that bad as long as it's over with quickly, right?

2. Enhance the flavor with a packet of Emergen-C (which is also packed with vitamins) or Crystal Light on the Go. You'll only add a few calories and it will make it taste MUCH more interesting.

3. Allow yourself a soda or alcoholic drink only if you drink water first. Getting through the glass of water will be much easier if you know you have a reward waiting for you on the other side.

4. If you're eating broth-based soup, add in a little extra water. It will only dilute the taste a tiny bit but you'll squeeze in extra water. Tip: start with small doses and build up - you don't want to ruin your soup by adding too much water.

5. Eat fruit. If you simply can't down a glass of H20 then eat an orange or an apple. They're full of water and at least you'll get a little more of the good stuff in your system.

Try one of these tips and let us know how it goes! Or, if you think we're all being a bunch of babies then share your tip on how you get more water in your diet.

A squeeze of lemon or lime really perks up a glass of plain tap water. Also, drink water through a straw and you'll be surprised how quickly it disappears.
