I don't like drinking water but I find it's a lot easier when I actually exercise! When you're really thirsty after a workout or after sweating a bit, you tend to want water rather than a sugary drink since it quenches your thirst better. Helps motivate me to work out AND drink water!

I saw this television show where this woman didn't want her kids drinking all of the sugary drinks out there so she started chopping up fruit and putting it in the water for her kids to drink. She is now rich & good for her. I decided to take her lead and fill up my wide mouth water bottle 1/3 with fruit then I fill it up with water. The longer the fruit sits in there the more flavorful the water is. I drink tons of water now.
The best part about this is also that my water bottle is like a box of Cracker Jacks...there's a prize in the bottom, fruit! Try it and let me know what you think. I have my friends hooked to this who are not on diets because it is so refreshing.253
Will drinking lot of water curb hunger and really promote weight loss?
A small amount of evidence says people who drink water before meals eat fewer calories but noone has really shown that drinking excessive amounts of water will make you lose weight. In fact, drinking too much water can lead to water intoxication, which can be fatal as demonstate in a Hold on to your Wee for Wii contest held by a radio station in california a couple of years ago. Stay Hydrated, yes, pale urine means you are hydrated, dark urine..you better start guzzling!!!
