    Another way of making sure u drink water but bored with just plain water is Infused Water.ere What u do is just sliced some fruits and place it in a litre of water. Leave it overnight in the fridge and finish it up the whole day. U can top up the water but make sure not to keep it more than 48 hrs. I’ve tried orange slices (2 large oranges in a litre of water) with mint – for the vitamin C and strawberry/kiwi infused water is great too – for the immune system. Try green tea, mint and lime for digestion and fat burning

    I don’t see the fascination with the water bottle it’s useless without the water. I like just plain water please don’t put a lemon in my water when I order my dinner in a restaurant. Remember your body can live for a week without food but within 24 hours of taking your last drink of water things start to go wrong your liver kidneys pancreas all star shutting down.
