Weeks 1 to 8

If your having a hard time remembering to drink enough water, try some of these tips

Guidelines:
Carry an insulated sports bottle with you and fill it up periodically; Keep a glass of water on your desk at work; Keep another glass next to your bed. Many of us wake up dehydrated first thing in the morning; Drink small amounts of water throughout the day. Six glasses all at once isn’t good for you; drink water before or after you use the restroom to replinsh your body; drink a glass of water before and after you exercise. Consider this a success if you used any of these tips or figured out a way to help you remember in another way.

Weeks 1 to 8

Drink a glass of water before excessive snacking

Guidelines:
It’s also very difficult for the body to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. So if you’re walking around feeling a gnawing sense of hunger, you might just be dehydrated. Try drinking a glass of water instead of grabbing a snack. Consider this a success even if you didn't have any hunger cravings beyond your normal snacks as long as when you had a craving for a snack you first drank water to allow time to know if you were hungry or thirsty.

Weeks 1 to 8

Drink a glass of water before each meal

Guidelines:
Research has also shown that drinking a glass of water right before a meal helps you to feel more full and eat less. “Many people do find that if they have water before a meal, it’s easier to eat more carefully.” It's hard to remember to do this at each meal if you are not used to doing this. Consider this a success if you are remembering at least half of the time.

Weeks 1 to 8

If you don't like plain water, try these variations

Guidelines:
Freeze pieces of lemon or lime and add them to your water; add slices of fresh cucumber, lemon, or limes (or other low-sugar fresh fruit or veggie) to your water. Try to limit adding artificial sweetners to your water for the duration of this challenge. Consider this a success if you did not need to add anything to your water, if you used any of the variations, or if you added artificial sweetner to to less than a quater of your water consumption.
