Most people tend to forget that there is a large amount of water in most of the
food we eat.
MMMM, water sandwich!

Most of my water consumption is from caffeine free fruit iced tea. I add 3 packets of Truvia per 96 ounces for a little extra sweetness. Sometimes I add 2 green tea bags to the mix. I have a tea maker and make 3 quarts per batch. It doesn't last long.
My favorite flavor of fruit tea...Bella Coola

For a change of pace, I will also make limeade and lemonade by the 16 oz glass using a healthy splash of the RealLemon/Lime concentrated products.
Half a packet of Truvia is plenty for that.

And then of course there is Coors Lite...

A timely update from the Clinical Journal Of Sports Medicine on drinking & exercise. Short answer - drink when thirsty. I add a 24hr replenish rule during the hot months to bring my body weight back to pre-workout status. RLR (rinse lather repeat)

The updated statement emphasizes a more balanced approach to hydration—especially during the summer months, when exercising in the heat increases the risk for developing dangerously low blood sodium levels associated with overdrinking
"Using the innate thirst mechanism to guide fluid consumption is a strategy that should limit drinking in excess and developing hyponatremia (low blood sodium) while providing sufficient fluid to prevent excessive dehydration,"
'Drink when thirsty' to avoid fatal drops in blood sodium levels during exercise
How's it going to end..............
