I am a great proponent of permanent and safe weight loss by changing the mental picture you have of yourself. If you change the way you view yourself and the way your mind sees you and talks to you, you can then easily change your weight successfully.

That being said, you can help yourself along greatly by making small and simple changes to your diet. Eating healthier foods is a great way to add to your program.

First, drink more water. Add at least one more glass a day to what you already drink. And, at the same time, make it fun. Try these:

1. Seltzer

Add a lemon or lime for a nice “punch.”

Bored with lemon and lime slices? Then try something more adventurous like a wedge of orange, a slice of pineapple, or a few cut-up strawberries. All will add a little flavor.

2. Herbal Tea

Put a herbal tea bag into a bottle of water and let it sit in your fridge for a while. It flavors the water. Strongly flavored teas work best. Stay away from the ones that contain caffeine.

If it’s cold outside drink hot herbal tea. You’ll enjoy the refreshing pause in your day.

3. Flavored Syrups

Raspberry, peach, cherry, or your favorites add a splash to a glass of water. Just a splash will work, so it does not add calories. Sugar-free syrups don’t add calories but are full of chemicals, so be careful in your choices.

4. Soup

Broth and bouillon are great choices. If you like the creamy soups be wary of the extra fat in them and use these only occasionally.

As daunting as it seems to drink those 6 to 8 glasses of water a day, all evidence has shown that drinking enough water helps weight loss, improves skin, and is just plain good for you. Studies have shown that people sometimes eat when they are in fact dehydrated. So drink up and enjoy trying some of these methods.
