Everyone knows that drinking water is important part of keeping us alive. FACT: Did you know that you can survival 3 days without water before you perish! Our body is made up of about 65% water. So why don’t we drink enough of it?
When it comes to it we have a taste for sugar. So we are able to drink the cordial, soft drinks, coffees, juices, “natural” flavoured waters and the list goes on without thinking about it. But when it comes to water it’s just too hard.
Growing up in Australia nearly every house hold had soft drink in the house. We were allowed to have it on special occasions or have it as a reward if we have done something good. Then it turned into you can have it once a week, to twice a week, to every second day to 1 can of soft drink a day. When I moved out of home I had no restriction to how much soft drink I could have. At my worst I could drink a 1.25L bottle of brown creamy soda in a day. I was having no water at this time. The effects that it had on my body was terrible, this is some of the things that happened to me
- Going from a healthy weight to being over weight
- My body was always sore and “tight”
- Chronic lower back pain
- High Cholesterol
- Addicted to sugar
- This was all because I wasn’t putting the right food and liquid in me.
Everyone has their own excuses on why they can’t drink water and they see it as a chore, while developing countries are dying for clean water. Here are 10 reasons why you should drink more water (https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-4287/10-Reasons-Why-You-Should-Drink-More-Water.html),

Now it’s all up to you. You already know all of this information but you have to make the change yourself. I will be honest it’s not going to be easy transitioning from the sugary drinks to water. But once you have gone through the sugar withdrawal you will notice the difference and wonder why you didn’t do it earlier.
