Nutrition Tip - Fluid Fantastic!

This is a simple and straightforward tip, drink more WATER! Water is essential for all bodily functions from digestion, to hydration, to joint lubrication, temperature control, appetite control. A general indicator that you need to drink more water is the colour of your urine, a deep yellow colour (in the absence of supplements) indicates you are not drinking enough. Aim to get 2 litres each day, this can be in the form of water or herbal teas. If you are not already a regular water consumer then, begin by buying yourself a new water bottle. Carry this water bottle with you everywhere you go and refill it throughout the day to ensure you get your 2 litres each day. It can even help with weight loss as recent studies showed increases in metabolic rate after drinking!

Good Luck!

It's so so so true. Helps with skin condition too. And so often when we think we are hungry or nibbly, we are simply dehydrated. Water picks up energy levels too. Thanks for another great post.
