A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep

It’s that time of year again!

For the majority of Canadians, the biggest New  Year’s resolutions are centred around health, diet, exercise, and cutting down on bad habits like smoking. Something that people miss is the common factor that furthers each of these goals: drinking enough water. 

As we have written in previous blog posts, if you take hydration seriously the benefits will be swift and broad sweeping. In addition to weight loss, drinking 4 bottles of Fountain Of Youth Bottled Water will improve your mood, increase cognitive performance and have your body functioning optimally.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

The importance of drinking water in the winter months is especially important. As it gets colder outside, the body has to work harder to maintain a 98.6 degree temperature; and that extra energy requires more water. In addition, sicknesses that peak in winter such as the flu can also lead to dehydration.


Water As Your Fountain Of Youth

Even though most people know the positive effects of water, they don’t drink it often enough. Drinking water is an easy thing to do, it’s just a matter of getting into the habit. With all the New Year’s resolutions that are difficult to maintain past January, Canadians should feel confident that drinking more water is a resolution that’s very doable to keep.

Get energized and excited about looking and feeling younger and healthier without having to drastically change your habits!



How Can Drinking More Water Help With Weight Loss?

We’ve heard it all before. Drinking the recommended amount of water – 2L or 4 bottles per day, is absolutely necessary to maintain good health. We’ve also been told that drinking more water can assist with weight loss – but the question is, how? Something on our bucket list this year is to lose weight and focus on staying hydrated. Here’s how Fountain of Youth Bottled Water can help with your weight loss goals.

drinkYou’ll Want To Eat Less

If nothing else, do this: Pound back a glass of water as soon as you experience a hunger craving. Assume that hunger means thirsty – because, in most cases, it does! The same goes for mealtimes. Drinking water prior to meals greatly decreases appetite.

Work Up A Sweat

They say weightloss is 80/20 diet and exercise. If you have found that you have reached a plateau with your diet, it’s time to get some exercise in. Drinking enough water has a direct impact on athletic performance. This means that you can go for longer and burn more calories if you are properly hydrated. Sufficient water also helps with post-workout recovery, so you won’t be as sore the next day and be more inclined to do it again!

Don’t Drink Your Calories

How much does a can of coke have in calories? 150. How many calories in a Starbucks Frappacino? 450. If these are your default go-to drinks every time you get thirsty, you could easily cut out close to 1000 calories per day. Reach for the water and see the difference in your skin, energy and waistline!

Losing weight is not complicated; it starts with simple routines that become habit. The rewards you reap from such a simple habit keeps us healthy, radiant and energized. As these three tips hopefully show, it can also help us lose weight, get fitter and feel better, too!
