Water rehydrates the body, moisturizes the skin, and gives you a general sense of well-being. It’s also a terrific boon to the weight conscious, at home or away. Water with meals cleanses your palate, aids digestion and counteracts the adverse effect of dehydration from travel and sun. Get a water bottle and keep it in your office, car, boat, room or cabin. Carry a bottle in your tote or gym bag. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water each day; at least one glass with every meal, whether you have an additional beverage or not. Sip. Don’t gulp.
