Q: I want to drink more water, but I find the taste pretty boring. How can I jazz up the flavor?
Samantha B. Cassetty, M.S., R.D., Nutritional Director, GHRI weighs in on ways to make water taste better.
Sam says: Try one or all of the following:
Add a sprig of fresh mint or a slice of lemon, lime, or orange for flavor.
Steal this spa secret: each day, fill a pitcher with the amount of water you want to drink, then add cucumber slices or spears. Aim to empty the pitcher by days end.
If youre out and buying water, look for one of the no-calorie flavored waters on the market.
Choose sparkling water, seltzer, or club soda, all of which ave a little more pizzazz and can potentially help you lose weight. According to a University of Ulster and University College Dublin report, the carbonation tricks your tummy into thinking its full. Look into the home machines that add fizz to plain tap water.
