You've heard it a million times 'drink water because it's good for you'. Well, not only is it good for you and necessary for normal functioning-if makes you FEEL good! Your body's main component is water, so why would you not replenish the fluids it uses during the day?
Here's the trick: Buy a Gatorade water bottle ($3.99 at your local Big5) and drink 3 of them a day. They are cheap and heavy duty, you can beat the crap out of it and it'll still work right! It's a 32 ounce bottle of awesomeness, I'm kind of obsessed. I own 3 of them- I recommend owning at least 2! They don't leak, and they don't have an annoying top that you have to open and close. Also, you'll look legit because all college athletes have them (write your name on the cap and you'll look even more legit!) Happy drinking! ; )
