Eight glasses a day. It’s therecommended amount of H2Oneeded to keep your skin glowing, your digestion in check, your energy up, and your metabolism kicking. Unfortunately, it’s also easier said than done.

Ever notice how you’re more motivated to hit the gym when you’re wearing cute workout clothes, or more inclined to tackle emails when your workspace is decked with pretty details?

To curb your appetite and help you eat less, make a point to drink a glass of water before every meal. Oftentimes our bodies confuse hunger with thirst, and you may find yourself satisfied—or at least less ravenous—after sipping some H2O. Cheers to a slimming tactic that doesn’t include cardio.
We know eight of glasses of water a day can get boring. To keep your intake up and your sanity intact, add natural flavor to your H2O with slices of fruit or herbs. Try mint, lemon, watermelon, raspberries, thyme, and cucumber. If you’re craving carbonation, consider aSodaStreamor mineral waters like Perrier and Pellegrino.
While traditional wisdom suggests eight eight-ounce glasses of water per day, instructions are getting increasingly personalized, suggesting that each person should actually drink half their body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, a woman that weighs 150 pounds would require 75 ounces—or about two liters of water—per day. To avoid keeping tally of regular-size 16-ounce water bottles all day, opt for a liter jug, big carafe, or larger water bottle, likeKlean Kanteen’s cute 40-ounce version. Bonus? Fewer refills means less math, and a higher likelihood that you’ll actually finish your prescribed amount of water.
If tracking your water intake seems like too much effort, fret not—there are apps for that.
