This is the time of year where it can be pretty difficult to avoid eating more than your body needs, and to not overdo it on the heavy, rich foods, but you can definitely help yourself by making sure you drink beverages that will aid your digestion and also lower your risk of a heart attack.
Drinking fluids might be the most important factor in the survival of human beings.
Water is the ideal beverage, with zero calories, which is why I carry around my aluminium container wherever I go. There’s no reason to buy bottled water, since tap water is often just as good, and it’s free. As for flavored water, that is mostly a total rip-off, and also unhealthy, since it can be very high in sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Everyone knows that water keeps you hydrated, which is important because every single cell in your body needs it in order to absorb nutrients and expel waste products. But drinking plenty of water also keeps your skin moisturized and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Consuming a good amount of H2O can help you lose weight because it suppresses your appetite, so you don’t eat as much. Very useful around Thanksgiving!
