Nutritionist Olena Kalen told us how to lose weight when the temperature outside the window is soaring. Everyone knows that the human body is almost two-thirds water, so our health largely depends on its quality. For those who want to lose weight, drinking plenty of water throughout the day is key.
It is important that we are talking about water, not other drinks like tea, coffee, or juices. How to drink more water and what can be added to it, said Elena Kalen, an expert in the psychology of weight loss, a consultant on nutritional support and a healthy lifestyle, on her Instagram page.
One of the most popular weight loss tips is to drink more water, says the nutritionist. It would seem that in the summer it shouldn’t be difficult, because in the heat you want to drink more, but in reality, it turns out that many people choose sweet soda or store-bought juice to quench their thirst.
How to drink more water
- Every day, set a goal to drink the right amount of water, even if it is small at first. A formulated goal sets you up for success.
- Keep water in front of you throughout the day, for example, on your desk or in your purse. This will help you not to forget about your goal.
- If you are on your feet all day, set a water reminder on your phone
- To make the drinking process unusual, you can drink water through a straw. This way, you can empty the glass unnoticed,” the expert recommended.
How to diversify water
If you don’t like the taste of plain water, turn it into a drink. Add mint leaves, ginger, berries, cinnamon, lemon, or cucumber. You can also change the flavors, add ice, or drink water from a cold glass – according to Elena Kalen, this also affects our sense of taste.
Please note: a beautiful bottle or glass can become an extension of your image and give you an emotional boost.
