My Life Before And After Fruit-Infused Water
Editor’s Note: I’ve been struggling to drink enough water throughout the day for years and I felt dehydrated but hated the taste of plain water. I came across Hint water and decided to give it a shot.
Here’s What My Days Looked Like Before Drinking Hint:
For years, I had been hearing that I should drink two liters of water a day (that’s about eight glasses!) And before I started drinking Hint, I could never come anywhere close to that.
I would wake up and have my morning coffee, then drink a few (okay, a lot) more cups of coffee throughout my day, with maybe a couple of cups of water in between. Once in a while, I’d have some morning OJ or the occasional diet soda with my lunch.
I’ve never been a water drinker. I’ve always been bored by the taste of it — or lack thereof. But with getting older (yep, it’s happening), I was feeling more groggy in the mornings. I had even been experiencing mild headaches regularly. And I was starting to think that it all came down to dehydration.
Wanting to make a change, I decided to add 2 liters of water a day to my daily intake. (I wasn’t going to give up my morning coffee!) Even though it seemed like a small change, I struggled a lot more with it than I’d expected. The first few days went well, but by the end of the first week, I gave up. I just couldn’t get past the bland taste!
Sure, I thought about flavored water, but I had recently weaned myself off sweeteners and cut way back on my diet soda habit, so I definitely didn’t want anything with sugar.
Hint is fruit-infused water that contains 0 sweeteners, 0 sugar, and 0 calories. And it comes in dozens of delicious flavors. Watermelon, Coconut, and Blackberry, just to name a few.
I thought it sounded too good to be true, but then I bought a bottle of their Watermelon flavor. Wow. I was blown away by how yummy and thirst-quenching it was. And then I went to their site and came across their new customer special: 3 cases — that’s 36 bottles — for only $1 per bottle, plus free shipping! Well, that was a no-brainer. I decided to take the plunge and give it a shot.
A few days later my first Hint delivery arrived on my doorstep, and the rest is history.
Here’s What My Days Looked Like After I Started Drinking Hint:
I ordered Watermelon, Pineapple, and Coconut flavors for my first delivery. I decided to start small, just trying to drink a bottle or two a day.
I instantly loved the Watermelon flavor. And the Pineapple was super tasty too, But Coconut might be my favorite.
I found myself drinking more than one bottle a day, and some days I would drink up to 4 bottles! That’s 64 ounces, which is just shy of my 2-liter target! After the first week, I noticed a difference in how I felt. I was less bloated and felt much more energized throughout the day. I never wake up with a dry mouth anymore — and no headaches!
I even started to see a difference in my skin after a few weeks; it was clearer and less dry because I was finally drinking enough water and hydrating myself.
I’m drinking Hint water every day now, and I’m feeling much better overall. I’m more productive throughout the day, getting more done at work, and my energy levels are through the roof. I’ve tried a bunch more Hint flavors, and all of them are so delicious that I’m having no problem drinking several bottles of water every day and staying hydrated throughout. (I’m still digging the Coconut flavor, and Watermelon will always be my first love, but I think my new favorite has got to be Blackberry.)
For the first time in my whole life, I’m drinking the recommended daily amount of water — all thanks to Hint. If you’d like to up your water intake, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.
