Summertime heat and playing outdoors increases your bodies need for water. It can be hard to get your 8-12 glasses a day, especially if you don’t like the taste of your water or you’d rather reach for your soda. Here are some fun ways to add more H2O to your diet.
If you don’t like to drink plain water, eating more watery foods is a good strategy. During the summer eat foods like melons, plums, and peaches to help increase your water intake.
Freeze 100% fruit juice and bits of real fruit in ice cube trays and add them to water.
If you’re trying to drink more, consider upping your water intake gradually. Try increasing one cup at a time to allow your body to adjust. Otherwise you may feel waterlogged and will be running to the bathroom every 15 minutes.
