In this hydration series, you learned about the green category of “drink more”, the yellow category of “drink some”, and the red category of “drink less”.

You also learned about plain water, sweetened beverages, carbonated beverages, tea & coffee, dairy & plant milks, recovery & performance drinks, alcohol, and which are in each of the red, yellow, and green drink categories.

The past couple of episodes talked about the proportion of ⅕ yellow, ⅘ green as well as ⅕ red, ⅕ yellow, ⅗ green.

Today’s topic is ⅕ red, ⅖ yellow, ⅖ green.

This proportion may work for you if:

  1. Most of your drinks currently fall into the red and yellow category.
  2. You exercise moderately or are training for an event like a half-marathon.
  3. You want to look, feel, and perform a little better than average.

Tune in to future episodes to finish learning about choosing drinks based on your goals, a daily drink intake that works for most, adjusting for your preferences and lifestyle, and more.
