Know what this is? Yeah, it’s water.

We need…well, a lot of it. Some people say eight 8-ounce glasses daily. (The reality may be more like 9-13, or more depending on your health, activity levels, and more.)

Water keeps you healthy, helps you feel full and boosts your energy levels (seriously). It’s kind of a miracle beverage.

Hate plain water? Put a lemon wedge in it, or use this stuff, which is a miracle in a shaker, because when I buy real, live lemons they always turn into desiccated husks in the back of the fridge. Carbonate it, put fruit in it, or make it into iced tea (sugar free, please).

I know. Water isn’t sexy. But it’s so, so important.

And right now I’m drinking, uh..coffee. The good news is that coffee doesn’t actually dehydrate you, despite what popular mythology says. But I should probably go get a pitcher of water.
