Can you remember the last time you drank a glass of water? That may seem like a silly question but water is typically neglected when we're thirsty. Coffee, orange juice or tea is normally the first choice of the day. Soft drinks are served at most parties and restaurants. Even non soda drinkers tend to pour themselves a glass of fruit juice before a glass of water. Athletes often go for a Gatorade or Powerade or other sports drink before water.
