Now that the weather’s warming up, I know it’s especially important to stay hydrated. But it’s a challenge to drink the recommended 6 to 8 glasses of water a day. Here’s a trick I’ve been doing: I keep a bottle next to the front door where I hang my dog’s leash. I grab it every time I take him out and sip while we hit the sidewalks. By the time he’s finishing up his evening walk, I’ve downed most of my day’s quota. My nutritionist, Ashley Koff, R.D., also told me that eating fruits like oranges and peaches is a great way to up my H2O intake (plus they’re filling because of fiber—and yummy!).
