Need an easy, inexpensive and dare I say FUN way to drink more water? Challenge yourself to drink one gallon of water DAILY at least for 30 days!
Maybe you’ve seen “The Water Challenge” floating around on social media. Some people do it for 30 days, others commit to only a week. One day at a time might be challenge enough for you.
Whatever you decide, commit to your daily gallon.
Here’s what one woman, Sharon, says happened after drinking a gallon of day for four weeks:
“I saw the most difference in my dark circles. Which I’ve ALWAYS had! I find I’m using less concealer ? BUT I did have 2 changes in the last month that you cant see on a photo. Firstly, I was born with a congenital leftover on my bowels that wasn’t discovered and removed until I was 16. So I’ve had issues with my digestive tract basically my whole life. The last 2 weeks I’ve been more regular than I EVER have been before!!! Who knew digesting could be so exciting! Hehe! Secondly, I broke my plateau!!! I’ve been stuck at the same weight for MONTHS and it was rather frustrating! I’ve lost 4 lbs in the last month by drinking a gallon a day! Now I’m going to be honest… I cheated 1 time… I had a can of Coke. I was pms’ing… But other than that one slip up, I didn’t drink anything but good ol’ water and some English breakfast tea (my favorite). And the funny thing is I don’t even miss all the juices and sodas…”
Yes, as Sharon said above, it may seem like a lot of water to consume, but there are a lot of benefits.
Ready to try it? Here are a few ways to make sure you get your gallon in every day:
-Drink a glass of water with every meal. You’ll be 1/3 of the way there already
-Set a reminder alarm on your phone
-Make a game of it. Every time someone says a certain word, take a gulp of water
-Add a lemon or lime to your water for flavor. You’ll be surprised just how far a little flavor can go.
Drinking more water:
• Helps your body absorb essential minerals and vitamins
• Releases toxins from the body
• Maintains healthy hair, skin and organs
