You’ve heard it time and again: Drink more water! Well, it’s true. There are tons benefits to drinking more water!.
Drinking more water keeps you hydrated, which, since your body is made up of 55-60 percent water, keeps your body systems and functions running more smoothly.
Your body can compensate for dehydration to a point, but severe dehydration is nothing to joke about - it could send your body into shock!
Drinking more water can also help curb your appetite. If you’re trying to lose weight or just keep a close watch on your calories to maintain a healthy weight, drinking water can help you consume less calories.
It does this by helping you feel more full, and causing you to say “no thanks” when more sugary options come your way.
Despite the benefits, when you feel thirsty it’s easy to give in to the draw of soda, fruit juices (most have plenty of added sugar) and other drinks that are easy to grab.
To help you choose water, try changing it up with these fruit-infused waters and be a pro when it comes to H2O!
