Why You Need to Drink Water

drinking water smile sarasotaWe seem to carry bottled water everywhere we go these days. In fact, it has become the second most popular drink behind soft drinks. Why should you drink more water? It’s simple! Just look at some of the benefits:

  • Water helps you feel full- are you really hungry or are you just thirsty? Before reaching for that snack, try drinking a glass of water first–you may just be dehydrated!
  • Water has zero calories- if you choose water instead of a drink loaded with calories, you can easily cut several hundred empty calories from your diet each day.
  • Water can help regulate your metabolism and increase your energy levels.  Who doesn’t need more energy to make it through projects and exams?
  • If you aren’t used to drinking water throughout the day try adding sliced fruit to your water. Did you know you are saving calories each time you choose water over soda or juice? Calories add up! Drinking just one 150 calorie soda per day can add up to 15 extra pound per year, not to mention that it contributes to tooth decay!
