STAY HYDRATED & ZAP YOUR SODA CRAVINGS AT THE SAME TIME

Summer is around the corner, the mercury is rising and the temperatures are already reaching 80+. With the great weather comes outdoor fun and exercise but unfortunately it can also bring along with it dehydration.

No matter how many times a day you tell yourself that drinking water is the best way to stay healthy and hydrated, sometimes you still feel bored and feel the need to grab that unhealthy sugary drink or soda. Not only is that a quick addition to your caloric daily intake, many of these sodas and sugary drinks also have caffeine which can also attribute to dehydration.
