Healthy Habit: Drink Plenty of Water

Alexa Fishback, author of The Daily Fix, believes in the power of water. Staying properly hydrated throughout the day is one of her twelve healthy habits that requires only sipping to put into practice. Along with sharing many of her healthy habits here on FitSugar, Alexa will be creating a personalized nutrition plan for the lucky winner of our Get Fit For 2009 giveaway, which includes many other amazing goodies like a $1000 gift card for Nike gear.

Now here's what Alexa has to say about water:
One of the best things you can do for yourself this 2009 is to make a pact to drink water with every meal. Skip the soda and juice and instead enjoy a tall glass of water, carbonated or flat, with or without ice, and maybe with a twist of lemon or lime. Making this a habit will go a long way toward reducing dehydration, constipation, and everyday bloating.

Not sure how much water you should be drinking? Check out the FitSugar calculator to figure out how to keep yourself hydrated.

I always make sure to drink lots of water. The cleanse I am doing right now requires me to drink 8-10 glasses a day and it's getting pretty routine now. And I am peeing a lot less thank god!
