DAY 1 – Healthy Eating Myth & Truth
MYTH: I drink plenty of other beverages, I don’t need water.
TRUTH: Regardless of how many other beverages you consume in a day, water is super important to your health. Other beverages don’t replace the value of drinking water. Your body is composed of about 60% water. Water boots energy. Water delivers important nutrients to all of our cells, especially muscle cells, postponing muscle fatigue. It can help with maintaining a healthy weight (Sometimes when you think you’re hungry you’re actually thirsty). Water also aids in digestion, detoxifies your system and hydrates skin. On a typical day you should drink half your body weight in ounces (average 64 oz) If you are sweating a lot (exercise, heat) – drink more. Your urine should be clear or light yellow – dark yellow or brownish you are dehydrated.
Tips for how to drink more water: carry a refillable water bottle with you wherever you go. If you drink 2 full 32 oz water bottles, you’re probably on track or at least off to a great start for the day. Say no to sodas and other soft drinks and ask for water instead. Add lemon or other fruit to add variety and flavor. Drink a full glass of water before your first cup of coffee or tea. Seltzer water or sparkling water can be a good source of hydration and count towards your total intake, but read the label and steer clear of any artificial ingredients or sweeteners.
Something to Think About
This is a great verse to kick off a new month! As you look to the month ahead, don’t allow yourself to be overwhelmed by what is to come, but instead, choose to seek Christ first in all things. When our eyes are fixed on Him, we can have faith that everything else will fall into place. How can your pursue Christ well this month?
