Should I Drink Water To Lose Weight?- DIY Infused Water
My friends tell me I have good genes. Why? Because, I look fit and healthy in my 40’s.
They see me at parties and I am usually the one who goes on eating a second serving shamelessly.
When we go out to eat, I am the one who sucks on the bone of a lamb shank devouring the marrow, because I LOVE food.
One thing that I know that contributes my health is drinking water.
Drinking water has been the simplest way to lose weight and stay fit for the Gopher.
I was a chubby kid most of my teenagehood. When I went to college, I made a decision to lose weight. I was tired of being husky.
The first step I took was to drop soda and all sugary drinks from my diet. My weight went down 12 lbs/ 6 kg in the course of 4 months WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING ELSE.. Just by starting to drink water when I got thirsty instead of drinking soda and coffee. What a novel idea! – Right?
So today, I am sharing with you how to drink water, the very foundation of life.

What are the benefits of drinking water?

Gopher’s tips & resources:
- Muddle herbs before putting them in water. They will give a lot more flavors that way.
- Keep a water bottle near you at all times of the day to make sure you are hydrated.
- Treat yourself in the evening. Make some fizzy water with a carbonator. It’s so refreshing.
- Drink filtered water. This is the RO filter I use at home.
