Drink till you Drown (well not really): Staying Hydrated

Some sources always try to use water as a sponge for your stomach. As in, “drink all this water and you’ll never need food again!”

Nope, nah and never. During your meatless diet however, you will get the munchies. It’s a given. In this way, your desire to be healthy can get thrown out of wack because of the bad habits you may form because you feel as though you can’t eat anything…

Stop being lazy and get a grip! You can be eating all the healthy food this green Earth can offer but if you’re not adequately hydrated, people will tell and your body will suffer in various ways. 

During my early stages of going meatless, I searched for my old water bottle. Reusable of course. Some folks like to get fancy and get one of these:

Recently I decided to revert back to a water bottle choice I used all through elementary school:

It’s plastic and HUGE can resuse it as many times you want.

I didn’t pay an expensive amount, and I can drink the recommended amount of water for my body weight (take your weight and divide by 2) without worrying how many water bottles I’ll have left for the week. 

Overall, drinking more water (and making an effort to do so), has cleared up my skin, fuels my energy, and I have less of an inclination to eat after 7pm unless I’m just bored

Drink as much as you can throughout the day. Your body will thank you and you’ll have folks wondering what tournament you’re training for. 

Water is a great conversation piece but should be a very important piece in your diet
