{ENDED} HydraCoach Giveaway *3 WINNERS* Ends 5/14

Have you seen those commercials for the bottles water where they say kids don't run through sprinklers of high fructose corn syrup, or jump into pools full of sugar? It's so true, but not just for our kids. I think it is so easy to do better for our children than we do for ourselves, and I know more times that I would like to count I've given my children a sippy of water or milk and grabbed a diet or regular soda for myself. That is especially bad considering half of what our children do they learned from us. Bad example, eh?

So I've been on the search to find ways to help me get my water, not only for the impression I'm making on my children, but for the health of my body. Here are some interesting facts about your body and water and why you NEED to be drinking it.
LOSING WEIGHT - I knew this one would get your attention, because it definitely has mine! Not only does no calorie water serve to replace the all of those nasty carbonated and sugary beverages, but it also helps to curb your appetite. Next time you want to munch before mealtime, grab an 8oz glass of water, wait 20 minutes, and see how you feel.
WATER, WATER, IT'S GOOD FOR YOUR HEART. THE MORE YOU DRINK THE MORE YOU... Lower your risk for heart attack. A six-year study published in the May 1, 2002 American Journal of Epidemiology found that those who drink more than 5 glasses of water a day were 41% less likely to die from a heart attack during the study period than those who drank less than two glasses.

HEADACHE - Did you know that a lot of headaches are actually brought on by dehydration? If you feel physically thirsty, you're already dehydrated. Here are some other signs
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Dry, flushed skin
  • Muscle cramps, and myofascial pain.
HydraCoach is the way that I make sure my body is getting the water that it needs. How does it work and what is it?

"The HydraCoach hydration monitor is a revolutionary interactive fluid measurement device that automatically calculates, monitors and provides instant feedback on fluid consumption for athletes, medical professionals and other health conscious individuals. Determined by a users weight and duration of exercise (sport version), the product will generate a personal hydration goal for the day. The monitor can be further adjusted manually in the setup mode to accommodate other known hydration factors (i.e. intensity of exercise, heat, altitude, pregnancy, etc...) to meet each user's specific hydration needs, or the recommendation of one's coach or other nutrition expert. Visit our Hydration Calculator page to generate your recommended fluid intake during exercise and for the day based on your level of exertion.

By addressing the unique and individual needs of all users, HydraCoach hydration monitors provide numerous far-reaching benefits. Understanding the ill-effects of both dehydration and over-hydration (hyponatremia), serious athletes to casual outdoor enthusiasts alike will find the monitor will help ensure "proper hydration" during exercise thereby elevating and sustaining performance levels. Health care providers are able to more closely monitor a patient’s compliance to their prescribed health program in order to help aid in recovery. Dietitians and spa technicians can design custom hydration plans to better suit their clients and more effectively track their progress. A sample list of other uses may include:

Athletes
Coaches
Trainers
Nutritionists
Doctors Exercise Physiologists
Hiking
Backpacking Soccer
Running
Cycling Mountain Biking
Special Forces
Military Elderly
Health Club
Weight Loss Day Spa
Spinning
Boating Adventure Racing


The HydraCoach is a dynamic tool that promotes daily hydration to virtually anyone interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This versatile device features a detachable head unit that can be used with any compatible HydraCoach system. Users can refill their containers at any time and HydraCoach will monitor the cumulative volume of fluid consumed."




It's a user friendly product that makes your life easier while also making it healthier. Even Ellen Degeneres included them on her 12 Days Of Giveaways this past Christmas!

And now I am going to give 3 readers a HydraCoach of their very own!

Love the orange, it's bright enough that I'll always be able to find it. What a clever idea and very useful since I'm just starting to work-out again and need the water reminders.
