Live Lean Nation, on today’s episode of Live Lean TV, lets talk about 5 ways to drink more water!
Before we get started talkin about One Savvy Life, in the comment section below, tell me how much water do you drink per day?

Alright, lets do this. The average person is made up of approximately 60% water. In other words, water is essential to Living Lean. It keeps your body functioning, it gets rid of waste, and it can help control appetite.
Depending on your climate and activity level, to properly stay hydrated, I often recommend people drink at least 3 liters of water a day (in most cases more).
Here’s a quick test to see if you’re properly hydrated…next time you’re taking a leak, if your urine is clear and odourless, you’re probably on the right track. If it’s really yellow and smells, drink more water.
If your bottle is 1 liter, keep it filled with water, then once it’s empty, refill it 3 more times if your goal is 4 liters a day. Now you know you hit your goal. By knowing how much water your re-usable bottle holds, you’ll have a visual reminder of how much water you need to drink throughout the day.
Bring your water bottle to the office and keep it on top of your desk so it’s always within sight. Also bring it to the gym so you don’t have to waste time walking back and forth to the water fountain.
I personally love the refreshing taste of water. But if you need more taste, DO NOT use those artificial sweetener options.
I recommend adding a few natural flavoring ingredients like: cucumber slices, ginger slices, fruit like berries, apples, watermelon, and oranges, cinnamon sticks, mint, basil, lime, and of course I love my lemon water.
Fill your re-usable jug the night before to allow the flavors to really come alive. Then simply leave the ingredients in your bottle all day as you keep refilling to hit your water goals. Then throw out the ingredients at the end of the day, wash your bottle, then repeat the next day.
1. 2 cucumber slices (thick), 2 ginger root slices (thick), and a handful of frozen berries
2. Handful frozen or fresh raspberries, peeled lime (thick slice) and a few basil leaves (large)
3. 2 apple slices (thick) and ½ cinnamon stick
4. 2 ginger root slices (thick), peeled lemon or lime (thick slice), and mint leaves (a stem)
This will help remind you to get chugging.
Drink a glass of water before every snack and meal throughout the day. It’ll help keep you feeling fuller, faster. In fact, a lot of times when people think they’re hungry, they just need more hydration.
If drinking 3-4 liters of water a day sounds crazy…start slow. Try adding in one extra glass a day for a week. Then increase it to 2 extra glasses a day the next week. You get the point.
Living Lean is about making progress. Not perfection.
