About Me

    Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 4.17.55 PMBefore I had begun the project, I had always tried to be somewhat aware about my health, exercising regularly and eating balanced meals, but I knew very little about the sugar in my diet and the toll it takes on the body. I came up with the idea for H2Operation upon hearing about the incredible effect of sugar on our lives. The statistics were quite a shock! Researching more about the topic and verifying the statistics I had been shown was perhaps an even greater shock. This scared me. I didn’t know how much sugar I was supposed to consume, how much I was already consuming, or where it was coming from. When I found that sugary drinks, surprisingly enough, were the number one source of sugar in the American diet, I knew that they would be the focus of my project. Today, H2Operation seeks to provide hydration education with local school presentations and through mediums such as this website and a downloadable app, both of which include easily accessible information about the sugar content in every day drinks and the effect they may have on you. eating balanced meals, but I knew very little about the sugar in my diet and the toll it takes on the body.
