Yes it is important to drink lots and lots of WATER. The best water for you is COLD water. Before you go to bed every night put a bottle of water in the freezer. When you get up it will be frozen. Then prepare your breakfast and it will have melted enough to drink.
The body has to work harder to bring the water down to body temperature thus burning more calories.

Fill a jug with lid 3/4 full of water (ie from milk, ice tea, water) and freeze...stash it in your cooler before grocery shopping....food will stay cooler and as the water melts you can refill everybody's cup or bottle. This works great at the beach too.
I even freeze a small water bottle whether I am home or running about...fun to have an ice cube in the bottle throughout the day. (a full bottle will over expand) 148
Take fresh, in-season fruits (berries are best), put them in a bowl with water. Fill your ice trays with the water/fruit blend & freeze. Tastes great & adds a little kick to bland water. Have an ice maker? No worries, Target sells ice trays. 4126
