8 Easy Ways To Drink More Water

It's important to stay hydrated. We hear it all the time.

Celebrity nutritionist Kimberly Snyder is here to help you stay hydrated with her tips...

  1. Individualize your intake. You may have heard that eight glasses a day is key, but Snyder has a higher quota. "Drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh every day," she says.
  2. Drink at room temperature. It’s more hydrating than cold water! Your body also spends more energy bringing cold water to a temp it can absorb, which causes water loss.
  3. Hydrate first thing in the morning. It’ll give you more energy, especially as we tend to get dehydrated overnight.
  4. Drink between meals instead of during. “Too much liquid with meals dilutes your digestive juices and can delay dehydration,” she explains.
  5. Eat water-rich foods. Cucumber is a great source of water, and so is celery.
  6. Compensate for caffeine and alcohol. Both of these are diuretics, which means that you’ll lose fluid from how much you’re going to the bathroom!
  7. Carry a water bottle. It’ll remind you to drink water during the day, especially if you’re out and about.
  8. Drink coconut water. It’ll replace both the water and the electrolytes that you lose throughout the day, especially when hot.
