Mealtime Hydration Does a Body Good

A great way to meet your water goal every day is to drink a glass of water before each meal. Besides helping to keep you hydrated there are a ton of other benefits, according to Teresa Blauwet, Hy-Vee Dietitian.

  • You’re more likely to eat fewer calories because water can provide a sense of fullness in your stomach. And as you know, fewer calories can lead to weight loss. Who doesn’t like that idea?
  • Water is great for your skin and keeps it hydrated and fresh.
  • Dehydration can decrease your energy level. By drinking a glass with every meal you’re on your way to meeting your daily water goal to help your body function at its best.
