We’ll be posting a new challenge every day leading up to summer! Follow along here on the blog, or using this calendar.
There’s only one week left of our 30-day summer countdown! We know you all can keep it up through the end. For today’s challenge, we’re even keeping it pretty simple: Drink a glass of water before each meal & snack.
There are a lot of different opinions about how much water is the “right” amount to drink each day. But there have been studies that show that drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before each deal can help reduce calorie intake.
We also turned to Barry’s Bootcamp instructor Erica Steinz for her tips about hydration:
Another common fear is holding onto water weight so people intake less water than is suggested before an event, photo shoot, etc. It’s actually smarter to drink a lot more water to flush out the sodium in your body so that your body does NOT retain water a week prior to the event. Then reduce the amount of water a day or two before you want to look slim in those pictures!
