Do you hate drinking water?
You wished you could drink more water but you can’t get over its bland and boring taste.
Everywhere you turn you read about the benefits of drinking more water and how important it is not only to lose weight but also to live healthier, but you still struggle to drink it.
If that sounds anything like you, then this post is for you.
Believe it or not, the amount of water you drink will impact how your body feels, how much weight you lose, and how much energy you have. Water is kinda of a big deal.
Drinking more water is beneficial to your health and something that you can work on it every single day for FREE.
I will never forget when my cousin, who is also a nutritionist, asked me to track my water intake. The results were shocking. Long story short, I wasn’t drinking anywhere near the recommended amount. Experts recommend that you drink at least 50% of your body weight in ounces of water.
For example, if you weight 150 lbs your minimum recommended amount is 75 ounces per day. My recommended amount was 80 oz of water, but I barely made it to 40 oz.
Using recipes to infuse water like the ones below, my new daily water intake has skyrocketed to over 100 oz per day!
You’ll learn that infusing Agua with your favorite fruits and spices is a game changer when it comes to flavor. These flavor packed recipes are great to get you started without feeling overwhelmed and juice deprived.
