  • Summer is here, and with it many opportunities to be involved in activities such as hiking, running, biking and swimming.  It is important during these normally hot and humid months that you drink enough water and stay hydrated.

    In our efforts to beat the summer heat it is easy to grab the first drink available. Often this could be sodas, vitamin water, sports and fruit drinks, smoothies, lemonade and sweetened ice tea. These drinks are high in calories and can lead to calorie over load.
