Water 101

Water 101

The Solution to Pollution is Dilution!

It's 4pm and you look over at your water bottle and it's filled to the brim.You realize you aren't even close to reaching your daily water goal. You know who you are (I'm watching you)! If you're one of my clients, past or present, you know that drinking half of your body weight in ounces of filtered water daily is my recommendation. Have you ever wondered WHY this magic number is one of the keys to unlocking your ultimate health and vitality? Do you know why you shouldn't drink out of plastic water bottles? Check out my latest article, Water 101, in the November issue of Austin Fit Magazine for the answers to these questions... and so much more.

Still having trouble getting those ounces down?

  • Start the day by waking up and grabbing your bottle (I drink 32 ounces right when I get out of bed, I reach my goal faster and avoid late-night trips to the john).
  • Set an alarm (or two... or three) on your phone. 
  • Keep a bottle in your car, at your desk, by your bedside, everywhere!
  • Buy a large glass or stainless steel water bottle and do the math to figure out how many bottles you need per day (puh-lease, no one's counting regular glasses).

Do you need help figuring out how much YOU need to drink?

  • Take your body weight in pounds and divide by two. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, your magic number is 75 ounces!
  • Don't forget to add to your goal if you are you doing a lot of heavy exercise (especially if you find yourself a sweaty monster afterwards). I love to add these electrolytes to my water on workout days for extra support.

Tired of plain water?

  • Add some flavor! Our favorites include lemon, lime, orange and cucumber, but there are endless possibilities. You can add these straight to your bottle or purchase a fruit infusion pitcher.
  • Grab some fizz! Buy a soda streamer and carbonate your own filtered water. We love to add a pinch of sea salt and a lime wedge to ours. LaCroix, Topo Chico and Pellegrino are a few of our favorite store-bought "sodas".
