Today’s tip:  Drink More Water

Today’s tip seems so basic but is SO important and many of us tend to overlook the numerous benefits of drinking plenty of water each day—not only for weight loss, but so many other ways!

According to, “Drinking ice cold water first thing in the morning is an easy way to speed up your metabolism. Right when you wake up, drink a glass or two of cold water. Your body will have to warm up the water entering your system.” In the process, burning more calories and helping you to lose weight.

When I get in the habit of drinking water, it’s a no-brainer. But, I’ve been out of that habit since before my toddler was born and I have to get back into it. Downloading an app such as what I use, WaterTracker, or Waterlogged will help remind you to drink water throughout the day while tracking how much you’ve already have. 

The Institute of Medicine recommends that women get approximately 11 (8 oz.) cups of water per day. Have no fear…this doesn’t have to come in the form of just bottled water. You can meet this quota through milk, juice and sports drinks, as well as coffee and tea. And, according to WebMD parents, you may also find water in some fruits, veggies and oatmeal, yogurt, soup, and smoothies.

But, the info I really needed to read to convince me to drink up is that drinking more water may also reduce your belly bloat.  Um, hello!  An article on explains, “As the fluids re-hydrate your body, your body learns it is no longer at risk of dehydration, so it will release the retained fluids, leading to reduced swelling.”

One final thought about drinking more water…it’ll make you happy! Feeling happy will inevitably lead you to make better choices and thus, be more conscious of your weight loss efforts.
