This is not a beverage and it’s not a food. It’s Hydration.
After breathing, hydration is the most important thing for your body.
When your body needs hydration, there’s no reason to give it food.
Milk, Colas, Beer, etc are all food. They contain calories and put demands on your system which have nothing to do with hydration.
Water is simple.
Why this is important.
We’ve allowed the body’s most basic need to be converted into a snacking opportunity. What’s basically the liquid version of breathing has been co-opted by beverage manufacturers and twisted around their spread sheets so that up to 30% of a child’s calories are now provided by drinks which should be water.
‘Should’ is not a matter of taste, it’s a matter of biology.
