Many people understand that in order to lose weight they need to keep their bodies hydrated so they don’t mistake thirst for hunger, but many people don’t realize that coffee, soda and tea won’t hydrate your body.  In fact both coffee and tea are diuretics and will dehydrate your body.  Soda is filled with artificial ingredients and sugar which goes against your weight loss goals.  The one sure way to keep your body hydrated is to drink plenty of water.  Keep a water bottle on hand at your desk, bring one in the car, and where ever you go and take sips all the time.  Quickly you’ll realize how much your body needs water, and you won’t believe you ever went without it.
