One of the simplest ways to improve your health, perform better, increase muscle and lose fat is to ensure you’re meeting your daily water intake goal. For many this is easier said than done. A loss of even 5% of water in the body can be fatal. One of the most common reasons for not meeting your goal is because water is bland/uninspiring to drink. Ironically this is also one of the easiest things to change.
Why not try adding some home-made fruity flavoured ice cubes to make your drinking water more exciting. The picture shown contains lemons, raspberries and blueberries. It will also have various health benefits making it a win win.
Adding flavour to water makes it more pleasurable to drink, meaning you’ll be more likely to hit your daily intake goal (0.033ml X Bodyweight in KG/per day).
Drinking Ice cold water could increase your resting metabolic rate. This is because your body has to warm it back up to body temperature and this process costs calories.
Adding various fruits such as lemon to water can help balance PH levels within the body. When our bodies enter a more acidic state through a high protein diet and exercise, it breeds disease. A PH-correct body will be healthier and recover faster from exercise.
Adding fruits to water will give a vitamin boost. Take for example lemons and blueberries, both high in vitamin C. Meaning you’ll have clearer skin, reduced stress and a stronger immune system.
