Are you hydrated?

This glimpse at healthy hydration in Florida is sponsored by Zephyrhills.
It's summer.  It's hot.  Are you hydrated?
Maybe you think to yourself, "Have I had my 8 - 8 oz glasses of water today?"  Well, the funny thing is there's actually no scientific research behind that recommendation.  It's easy to remember and it most likely helps people to attempt to drink more fluids, but a 5'1" woman and a 6'4" man living in different climates with different activity levels have very different fluid needs.  On average it's about 9 cups daily for a woman and 13 cups for a man (with 1 cup being 8 ounces).  While all fluids and fruits and vegetables can add to this count, I like to get a majority of my fluid intake from high quality H2O.

So back to my first question....Are you hydrated?

The answer...check yourself!  And by yourself I mean your urine.  Use the friendly urine chart as a way to gauge your hydration level.  You're welcome.
Another question that can come up when talking about water is the debate of bottled water vs. tap water.  I personally drink both daily.  Tap water in convenient when I'm at home, but when I'm on the go I always (and I mean always) have a bottle of Zephyrhills Spring Water with me.  Earlier this summer I was given a closer look at Zephyrhills bottling plant and Crystal Springs preserve and I learned some interesting things about water.
Did you know that nearly 70% of what we drink comes from a package?

Add the fact that the average American gets 20% of their daily calories from beverages and it's easy to see how switching to bottled water on the go can be a healthy and hydrating choice.

If you're reading this blog, then you probably take steps to live a healthier life.  But we all have our vices.  Could soda be yours?  Trading 1 soda a day for 1 bottle of water will save you 50,000 calories and about 14 extra pounds a year.

If you want to hop off the soda train and try bottled water know that you're not alone.  Bottled water outsells soft drinks in more than 16 major US markets. If you get bored with the taste of plain water try adding fruit or lemon juice.  You can also check out the few variety of calorie-free, sparkling water like lemon, raspberry lime, lime, and mandarin orange.
Finally, Nestle Water and Zephyrhills are working towards having the lightest environmental footprint of any packaged footprint.  Over the past 20 years, Nestle Waters has reduced the amount of plastic in its bottles by 60% and compared to a typical bottle of the same size, their Eco-shape has 30% less plastic.

When you're on-the-go this summer don't forget to hydrate.

How much water have you had today?
How do you stay cool in the summer?

Love and bottled with care,
