The water intake challenge is a 30 day course to keep you on track to drinking more water daily. Building habits take time, but starting slow and progressively building up through the month will make the changes feel like a piece of cake! What are the benefits of drinking more water? Keeping your body hydrated throughout the day has been linked to countless health benefits. To name a few, increasing your water intake can help prevent constipation and kidney stones, along with aid in a boost to your metabolism. Drinking water also helps with skin care and acne management. Another great advantage to increased water intake, is the weight loss potential. Drinking water before you eat (20-30 minutes) can help in preventing overeating by providing a sense of feeling full. Studies have shown that drinking water prior to food consumption can reduce the calorie count your body takes in from the meal you eat by an average of 75 calories. It might not sound like much, but for each meal, this can add up fast!
