In the summer months, it is especially important to keep your body hydrated. Many of my clients are drinking lots of soda, coffee and energy drinks when they start to train with me. While these drinks may taste good, they offer very little moisture. In fact, they can actually add to dehydration. Most of the “water” as water flavored Vitamin are full of chemicals and food dyes, at least where an ideal choice as well. So what I recommend to my clients that need a little spice in your drink without the calories and junk? Infused waters!
infusion is a great way to add some flavor to your water and encourage increased water intake. This is especially great for children who have problems with drinking water. You can create your own combinations of flavor with your favorite fruits and vegetables, or find recipes for tracking online. Make sure you are drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day, if not more!
Some of my favorites are flavor combinations:
- cucumber and mint
- grapefruit and rosemary
- grape and orange
- raspberry and lemon
- grape, strawberry and lime
