i drink one 8 oz glass of water before I put any food in my mouth. Makes me fill fuller quicker and I notice I am not hungry after eating my small meals or snacks. I never get headaches anymore ( dehydration is the number one reason for headaches) and I don't get thirsty anymore either ( which is your bodies way of telling you are already dehydrated) Water is a huge help for many things!!

To save, I ordered several of the Nalgene water bottles from the Co. We use Brita pitchers any way and have 3 of them filling/full at all times. I keep 1 of the 32 oz ones by me as my backup and when at home have my large glass to fill. I keep 2 - 3 of the bottles with me when gone from home.
Using the Brita pitchers makes our water taste so good that we don't have any problems drinking all we need. It filters out all the chlorene etc so it doesn't stink or taste bad. We keep a 2 qt pitcher of water on the counter to refill the Britas as we go through 2 gal. a day for 342
Focusing on drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day will make you fill full and keep you from craving sugary sodas and juices. It will also give you more energy by aiding in digestion. The extra benefits are prettier skin, hair and nails!
