Losing weight is something that people all across America are trying to do these days. The typical methods include going to the gym and eating better foods. However, not many of you think as much about what you are drinking as what you are eating. In fact, making better decisions about you’re drinking habits could help you shed the extra few pounds you are looking to lose.
One drinking choice many people on a diet make is to drink more water. Sounds smart right? It is smart. Drinking more water will keep your stomach feeling more full and this allows you to eat less. But is all water the same? There seems to be a noted difference between tap and filtered water, and most people prefer to get their water on the go in the form of pre-packaged water bottles. I am not going to start a lecture on going green, but here are a few things you might want to know about what you are buying.
Tap water undergoes more quality and health testing than bottled water. Shocking isn’t it? The water you get for free (more or less) out of your sink not only costs less, but may be better for you.
Some bottled water is nothing more than bottled tap water. Many brands of bottled water are nothing more than tap water with minerals added in. While I just said tap water passes more quality and health testing, you are still paying a lot of money for something you can get for free.
These are just a few surprising facts about the water we buy en mass in bottles. For more details, pick up a copy of Drink This, Not That. There is a wealth of information in its pages to help you make smarter drinking decisions.
