TACO TUESDAY:TAKE THE GALLON CHALLENGE: CAN YOU DRINK A GALLON OF WATER EVERDAY?

TACO TUESDAY; DRINK A GALLON OF WATER A DAY—

Sounds excessive doesn’t it? Drinking a gallon of water everyday sounds like an impossible feat, right?
I’m lucky if I drink any water at all during the day. But with temperatures soaring to 95 every day in our landlocked area, there isn’t a cooling lake breeze to cool our bodies down naturally, so we have to cool ourselves off by drinking tons of water. But really a gallon of water a day? Sounds excessive right?

A local doctor where we live in Central Pennsylvania tells my husband at every hospital meeting,” Drink a gallon of water a day.” The local urologist talks to groups telling people NOT to drink a ton of caffeinated drinks, but drink a lot of water to stay hydrated. One time when I went in the hospital for a routine test, my husband introduced me to the urologist and he said, “Kate drink a lot of water. It keeps everything in your body working.” The well intentioned doctor says we all need to drink water all day to rid our bodies of toxins keeping the kidneys from getting kidney stones. Drinking ice tea, or any drink with caffeine is a diuretic taking water out of the body. But exactly how can we drink a gallon of water a day without drowning?

How to Get a gallon of water or a more reasonable amount like maybe 32 ounces, everyday:

1. Drink a glass of water right after getting out of bed every morning. (That’s 8 ounces—already!)

2. Keep a pitcher of cool, ready to drink water in the fridge at all times, not just the summer, to drink all day.

3. Keep a glass of cool water with ice cubes inside to cool off during the day—all day long. Work at home people really need to do this.

4. Eat foods with water in them such as watermelon which is 90 percent water, iceberg lettuce, grapes, berries, not salty foods.

5, Keep a steady supply of ice cubes in the freezer ready to go.

6. Place ice cubes in every drink.

7. Oh yes, the urologist also says drinking one beer a day helps keep kidney stones at bay. And by the way beer is the perfect food, and also contains water!!

8. To make water taste better, mix with a lemon or tasty ice cubes mixed with a drink of your choice.

Keep drinking water Mom, which will keep you healthy enough to keep up with the kids. Momzinga.com.
