Slim Suggestion: H2 Ohhh


We all know that we’re supposed to drink lots of water everyday. Drinking 8-12 glasses of agua daily has countless health benefits. Also, your appearance benefits from drinking enough water each day. Water hydrates your skin making you look younger and it assists in weight loss. So why don’t we drink more? Because next to delicious lattes and flavored fizzy drinks water falls flat. It’s, dare we say, a little boring. So here are a few ways to jazz up your H2O…

  • Fruit – Slice it up and toss it in. Try different fruits or even different combinations of fruit. Some popular ones are cucumbers, lemons, limes, oranges, strawberries, raspberries… and the list goes on.
  • Mint – Try adding a few mint leaves to your water. It will give it a refreshing twist.
  • Ice – Fill an ice tray with your favorite all natural fruit juice and put it in the freezer. When the cubes have frozen try adding a couple to your water for a hint of flavor.

    Altough fresh clear water is the best, it can get boring somtimes! I usually but thin orange slices in the water for a different taste :) It is sooo good!

  • Casey Lynn

    I like adding lemon slices too, but I have found that the more water you drink, the less boring it gets and starts feeling/ tasting like less of a chore. Keeping water on hand makes you reach for it more often too!!

    Great advice Lauren!


  • Anna James

  • Julie Haugan

    That`s true! Once you start, you cant`t stop! :)

  • Kimberly

    I love to drink water (I don’t know why, but it has a refreshing taste) and sometimes I think it’s boring to drink the same and these are good tips! Or I drink syrup.


  • Lala

    I’ve heard of the fruit and mint options, but I’ve never heard of the fruit juice ice cubes. I’ll have to try that!

  • Sarah Jarvis

    awesome ideas, thankyou! I’ve been struggling to get into the habit lately of drinking more water :) This will definitely help!

  • Koceva Tamara

    Great ideas, I’ll definitely try some of them!

  • Kimbers C-W

    My work friend and I have been making sure we drink 2 ltrs a day and we’ve made it into a bit of a competition to make sure we do it!

  • Julie Haugan

    ah! We have started with the same thing! I beat my colleague today with 3 glasses! :) the winner gets a slice of orange or lime in! πŸ˜›

  • maia maia

    It’s so important to stay hydrated. Your web is great!

  • Betsy Borst

    Definetly trying the ice cubes! Thanks! ~Happy Weekend!~

  • Lupsie

    I love water…but when I’m kind of bored of water I drink selzter (the one with no calories or sodium) and I squeeze a little lemon in it to give it a kick

  • diana seitanidou

    i enjoy water and i drink 8 glasses every day :) one of my friends lost 10 pounds in about a month only by drinking 2 litres of water every day !! crazy!!

  • Courtney Thomas

    I just bought a cute eco-friendly cup so I can drink water all the time. I am going to try putting cucumbers in it next time sounds yummy

  • Keeler

    Cucumbers and lemons are my favorite, especially for the summer time.

    I also recommend a Britta filter, instead of buying bottles of water (save some plastic!) and I also think it tastes sooo much better than water from the tap. I also just bought a Bobble water bottle which filters as you drink it, which I love because I can be anywhere and have filtered water like I do at home.

  • Emily Hanson

    I get the Crystal Light single packets…I have never drank more water in my life :)

  • Brandy Hyder

    I find myself drinking lots of Seltzer water bc it has the bubbly stuff I like in soft drinks :)

  • Courtney Thompson

    I put lemon and splenda in mine. Weird I know but good!

  • Kimberly Reed

  • Emily Zehr

    LOVE it! Its such a great idea! I always want to drink more water, but there are definitely times when I just can’t drink any more water… it get bland after awhile.

  • Ana Henchoz

    love water besides i doesn’t taste that bad and it has many benefits

  • Stephanie Kuhlman

    Putting fruit or cucumber slices in the water is seriously the most refreshing drink ever. I would take that over a diet coke any day!

  • Lisa Sinclair

    Sounds kind of bizarre, but try sliced tomatoes in your water. I had it at a Top Spa. I thought it was going to be strange, especially since I’m not a big fan of tomatoes myself, but it was really refreshing.

  • Abby Joyce

    I drink water like a fish. I dont find it boring but sometimes I want to try different fruits. My favorite is water, and then cucumber! I will have to try the ice cube thing though!

  • Vanya Deleon

    These are good ideas for the water, I try to have the min of 8 cups a day and I usually only make it to 7 LOL!

  • Jaya McFarland

    Camelbak water bottles, I drink water like a fish because of the straw it keeps luring you to drink water.

  • sarahcob

    hey, you know what is great in your water is strawberries and mint leaves, or lemon and mint leaves as well….even just a couple of orange slices….mix it up it taste great.

  • Tricia Angle

    I agree with Jaya! Straws compell me to drink for some reason… Always have my cup full of water with a straw!!

  • Alyssa

    I used to have the hardest time drinking the right amount of water, but as soon as I got in the habit of doing it, I saw so many improvements to my health. I had a lot more energy and I felt a boost in my self esteem.

  • Kimbers C-W

    2 weeks into my 2 litres a day challenge i’m really noticing the benefits. I’m thirstier so craving water, and my skin looks much fresher. Defo worth perservering with. :-)

  • Mandi Wasmer

    I agree with the Camelbak theory! Cute and interesting water bottles make you want to drink it more. Unless you’re like me and start filling them with soda and iced coffee…huge fail. πŸ˜›

  • Elena Fricks

    I have the best little water pitcher with a tube in the center of it that you fill with fruits or veggies to flavor your water. Every time i go to my fridge its right there ready for me. I got it at Target for not much at all.

  • Marisa Pope

    I am actually one of the weird people that love water. I started drinking it to get healthier, but then i just got hooked. I had a 16 oz. waterbottle but found myself filling it up like 6-8 times a day… do i decided that i needed a new bottle; i bought a 32 oz one, and filled it up about 3 times a day, but after a year it got old, and i needed a new one. Now i have an amazing 64 oz waterbottle that people think i’m crazy for carrying around. i sometimes fill it up, but not always.
    I never thought about making it taste better, not that i have a problem with the taste… I do add lemon randomly; but only when it’s available.

    Thanks for the tip, love it.

  • Kelly Paley

    I love the fruit juice ice cubes. Thanks for the idea! And I definitely agree about the Camelbak.

  • Lis Wass

    I love love love water, and obviously nobody can live without it but i need a water every hour :) thanks for the tip and i will def. have to try this !!

  • Jenna Surig

    Making ice cubes….now!

  • Gina

    I love water and try to get as many glasses a day in as I can. I also make sure that where ever I go I have a bottle with me full of water so that I can drink on the go! I also have a tip.. I buy those Crystal Light packs because they come in some great flavors. Pomagranite Cherry is my favorite one. I don’t follow the instructions on the package and I add 2 – 3 cups less water so that the flavor is stronger. I then pour it into an ice cube tray. Freeze it then add 1 or 2 pices of ice to my glass of water for a great splash of flavor.

  • deepti shrestha

    so true… i have like four litres everyday..except some busy day…

  • Emma Thezan

    I drink 1 ltr of sparkling water a day, but it gets boring too, so I am going to try those awesome ideas. I espacially like the fruits idea, for me it is really American, I saw those kind of water in TV shows lol

  • Danyelle Gay

    Cucumber in water!!! I can’t stand water.. it’s way too bland, so I prefer iced tea.

  • Tricia McKenley

    I’m back into drinking water again and loving it. Now that I’m eating better and drinking more water, I’ve been feeling great. I do have more energy (especially for my very mobile 10 month old :)
