Another important factor of your diet is what you drink.
Water is the best option for quenching your thirst and providing your body with everything it needs to replenish the fluids it loses.
As a guide, aim to drink 1 litre of water a day per 25 kilos of body weight. For example, if you weigh 75 kilos, you should aim to drink 3 litres of water per day.
Spruce up your H20
If you’re trying to increase your water intake but struggling to drink it, flavoured water might be a good option for you. Natural flavourings enhance the taste and help you consume more.
Two of the world’s most popular drinks, tea and coffee give you an energy boost because of the caffeine found in them. If you’re on a weight loss programme, black coffee, coffee with almond milk or green tea may be a good option for you.
Limit juices and energy drinks
Some beverages should be limited or consumed in moderation. If you can, avoid any type of juice, energy drink and fizzy drink as they are high in both sugar and calories.
Although diet drinks such as diet coke have no significant nutritional value, they also usually have zero calories, making them a preferred choice over sugary juices and energy drinks.
