And not 80 ounces to drink.
One of the biggest changes I made when I decided that for me, healthy was about making lifestyle changes, not following fad diets, was to trade some of my favorite drinks — diet sodas, juice, copious amounts of coffee — in for water.
Ugh. I know. WATER. How boring!
But like everything else, I started slow. A glass of water with my morning coffee. A full thermos of ice cold water during the morning meeting at work. A full cup of water before lunch. Another in mid-afternoon. A gulp from the water fountain before my post-work workout. More at dinner. And a glass before bedtime.
(Yes, as my colleagues can attest…this has led to multiple trips to the bathroom. Per hour. They kind of just smile now when I get up during meetings.)
Over time, I’ve come to crave water, and I feel dehydrated and lethargic without it. It’s kind of like developing a taste for wheat bread over white, or stevia over sugar. It takes time, but once you make the switch, you don’t miss the old choice.
