Lastly, here are 4 tips to help you successfully drink healthy beverages:
1) Carry a water bottle with you throughout the day
When you start to get thirsty it will be right within your reach!
2) Keep the sugar-sweetened beverages out of your home
Instead, stock your fridge with a jug of water or individual bottles to grab and go.
3) If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding slices of lime or lemon
Cucumber, watermelon, mint, or ginger can also be flavorful water additions.
4) Try adding a splash of 100% fruit juice to regular or sparkling water for a low-calorie drink
Remember, what you drink is just as important as what you eat! Know how much sugar your drink contains, reduce portion sizes of unhealthy beverages, and make the switch to water or sugar-free drinks to maximize your health!
