We know you’ve heard it all before - diet soda is bad news for your body. It’s actually one of the biggest culprits in the national weight gain problem for Americans. (Yikes!)
However, your waistline isn’t the only thing you should worry about the next time you grab a glass of that caramel bubbly. We’ve got a few more reasons why you should ditch the diet soda craze for good.
Summer’s the time to dodge the gym (Adios treadmill!), but sky-high temps make workouts tougher and potentially more dangerous to your body. While the benefits of exercising outdoors - increased energy, improved mood, and reduced tension - are more than rewarding, the sizzling summer sun can really make you fizzle - literally!
Let’s paint the picture. In hot weather, your heart not only pumps blood to your working muscles but also sends blood to your skin so your body can release internal heat into the environment and help cool itself. Together, they create added stress on your cardiovascular system, which in turn increases your risk for dehydration and dangerous heat-related illnesses.
Whether you’re spending a vacation camping and hiking, running a 5k, or just doing more fun activities like biking, walking, and swimming, we’ve got some tips for how you can help beat the heat and stay hydrated through your next outdoor workout.
Like True Citrus flavors, paletas cool you off and make summer muy fabuloso. In Mexico there’s a dozens of kinds of these luscious, juicy, frozen treats on a stick.
Paletas are easy to make (thanks in part to convenient packets of True Lemon, True Lime and True Grapefruit). Just heat, blend and freeze!
What’s more delicious and better for you on a hot summer day than a glass of water chock full of ice cubes -- and your favorite all natural True Citrus flavor, of course? Actually, nothing!
We've already talked about how cold water boosts exercise. But does just drinking that icy cold water alone help you lose weight?
Here at True Citrus, where we make water more magical the natural way with 100% crystallized citrus, we’d like to take a look at whether or not the “Ice Water Diet” really works.
Summers are super hot in Baltimore, True Citrus’ hometown. And our humidity takes “big hair” to a whole new level.
But super hot is when True Citrus flavors shine brightest. So to help you chill out without AC bills going through the roof, here’s four cooling tips:
1. When it’s hot, stay away from juices and sodas with refined sugar. Despite those TV ads that make it seem like sodas are SO refreshing, drinking cola can actually make you hotter. Why? When you take in sugar, your blood sugar levels spike, raising your body temperature. Sugar also increases your heart rate by constricting your vascular system.
Wave Vidmar, master of all things Arctic, is hitting the deep blue sea this summer. He’ll also be riding the swells in October during his solo trip from the U.S. to England in a 24-foot ocean rowboat. But before then, he needs a little training.
To Wave, “little” and “epic” must mean the same thing. So June 21st, he’ll board the kayak pictured here, paddle past Alcatraz, head for the frigid Pacific waters and keep going until he hits Hawaii. That means paddling 3,100 miles for about 50 days straight! This journey will set the record for open ocean crossings in a traditional kayak – it’s “the Mr. Everest of kayaking trips”!
We love food here at True Citrus. Love. Love. Love. We even dream about food. But we also love our health and our figures, and we want to keep both.
That’s why we drink!
No, we’re not talking about daiquiris instead of dinner. We’re talking about the True Lemon pre-fill.
What’s a great reason to limit sodas and sugary drinks and give your kids waterwith delicious, all- natural True Citrus flavors instead?
Because once kids get Type 2 diabetes, many can’t ever get rid of it - not with drugs, diet or exercise. They’re stuck with it for life.
Our First Lady is out there, planting whole foods and showing kids it’s fun to exercise. But it might be too late for many American teenagers today.
Prediabetes and diabetes are on the rise among teens, and that means more teens have a bigger risk of getting heart disease.
There’s all sorts of good reasons to lose a few pounds. Starting with you look better in jeans, and moving on to more important reasons, like better heart function.
But now there’s another awesome reason to let True Lemon help you lose weight by drinking more water. Less risk of breast cancer!
Here’s some statistics: two-thirds of the women in the U.S. are overweight or obese. And 1 in 8 American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
