Hydration is key

Do you give your hydration the attention it deserves? If not don’t worry I’ve found a few blogs which can help you out. The Eatwell Guide states 6-8 cups/glasses of fluid a day, do you get anywhere near that? If you do but it’s 8 cups of coffee or 8 pints of beer, we’ve got some work to do.

The blogs below will help highlight the “invisible calories” drinks contain and why they might be holding you back from your fitness goals. The others have healthy smoothie and fruit infusion recipes for you to try.

To give you a little comparison with your current hydration, here’s my average daily fluid intake -

· 2 cups of tea

· 4 water bottles

· 2 Shakers of BCAAs or a Protein Shake (all made with water)

· 2 pints of sugar free squash

When I make a smoothie/shake at home the liquid content I use is 60% water & 40% oat milk to provide a few extra calories on a very active day, or 100% water when it's purely for hydration.

Understanding Liquid Calories

When you log your food/calories do you log your drinks? If not I would highly recommend you start doing it. A protein shake with milk and peanut butter will contain a lot more calories than you think. Your glass of wine "treat" after work can add up to over 2400 calories a month. No food or drink is off the table but moderation is crucial!
