On the Ideal Protein protocol it is very important to get 64 ounces of water in a day. That can seem like a lot of water! Here’s some tips. If you use plastic, disposable water bottles, label them one through eight. You’ll know that you need to finish all 8 by the end of the day.
Do you get bored with water? Try slicing some lemons and put them in a pitcher of water in the refrigerator. You can also substitute lemons with cucumbers for a refreshing taste. Other ideas would be to steep some home-grown mint for 15 minutes, scoop out the leaves and pour the mint water into a pitcher. Let it cool and then store in the refrigerator. Yummy. Sliced cucumbers in your water pitcher is another flavorful idea.
For some other great ideas, get some of the flavored Sweet Leaf Stevia and put in your water. Great flavors like root beer, lemon, peppermint and more.
Stay away from the artificial sweeteners and Crystal Lite. Remember, no diet soda.
Have you tried the Ideal Protein water enhancers? Some great flavors like tangerine, lemon raspberry and exotic fruit can make your water delicious. I like mixing them with sparkling water like Pellegrino. Just make sure your sparkling water does not have phosphoric acid or sodium added.
The Branched Chain Amino Acids from Ideal Protein are another great favorite.
