We Drank Nothing But Water For A Week & Reaped the Benefits

If you're anything like us, you love your cool drinks. Whether it’s iced coffee or that all-natural mango smoothie, we’re quick to reach for these kinds of drinks over anything else. But if we’re being honest there’s definitely room for improvement in the H2O department, so we tried a little experiment. We drank nothing but water for a whole week straight (64 ounces per day) and after just a few days we noticed five significant changes:

BLOATING

We noticed a significant decrease in bloating. Bloating can be caused by your period, overeating or even something as simple as your dairy intake. Substituting a chocolate milkshake (my fave!) with a bottle of water can make the world of a difference. I know giving up your macchiato is hard to fathom, but give it a try and see what happens.

ACNE

Our acne started clearing up! Not only does drinking water make your skin brighter, it also helps with acne. Think about it, you’re hydrating your skin from the inside out. Drinking water flushes out those awful toxins, which helps the attacks on your skin. So not only can you count on face washes to do the trick, something as simple as drinking water can help as well.

THIRST AND HUNGER

Now that we've been drinking more water, we've noticed a huge difference in our appetite and thirst. By drinking a glass or two before a meal, understandably, you eat less because you feel less hungry. If you lack control when it comes to dinner drink some water! As for thirst, water keeps you hydrated for much longer than a can of soda. Yeah, soda can be refreshing during a family barbecue, but afterwards you just end up reaching for more soda. Bleh!

CALORIES

This is perfect for anyone who is trying to get in shape. Water has no calories, so by drinking it, you automatically cut down your caloric intake, flush out toxins, and control how much you eat during a meal.

Agua es vida! This is just a list we put together after a couple of days and it’s definitely something we’ll be sticking to. If you need to spruce it up a bit by adding fruit, go ahead. And instead of buying a case of water bottles, use a filtered water bottle to be cost efficient and help the environment! Why don't you give it a try and tell us what you think!
