Water Enhancers for Hydration and Weight Loss
Protein meals and snacks can help you reach your goals, and there is something else that can keep you healthy and satisfied: staying hydrated. Water is an underappreciated weight loss tool that has plenty of upsides, and no downside. Are you getting enough?
Why Drink Water?
Water may not have protein, but did you know that water itself is an essential nutrient? In short, reasons for drinking water include weight loss and better health. Water:
- Reduces hunger.
- Prevents dehydration headaches.
- Increases energy and reduces lethargy.
- Is calorie-free.
- Prevents dehydration, especially during summer and when exercising.
Aim for a minimum of 64 ounces of water per day, with emphasis on minimum. You have higher needs in the summer and when you exercise. Plus, drinking an extra few glasses of water can only have extra benefits.
If you are not into plain water, or you want some variety in your drinking life, you have plenty of choices. Water enhancers can offer a range of flavors in calorie-free or low-calorie varieties. Some even have additional benefits, such as vitamins or fiber. Choices in The BariatricPal Store include:
- Calorie-free fruit flavors, such as berry, fruit punch, lemonade, and orange mango.
- Mixed Fruit with Caffeine
- Hunger Control with Vitamin C
Our water enhancers are gluten-free, all-natural, and free from artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and dyes.
