Save yourself during the holidays: Drink Water

Traveling to see family?  Drink water and stay hydrated

Don’t want to eat too much?  Drink water before dinner, it will help fill you up – it takes 15 minutes for your brain to register that you are full, a tall glass of water can fake out your brain

Don’t want to drink too much?  Make your first drink a glass of water . Drinking is often social and we forget just how much we are drinking. For every drink, have a big glass of water, and slow down. Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 6.02.36 PM
