Water - the Fountain of Youth

Drink Water!! Go for 80 oz. per day. Sounds like alot? 80 oz. is ten 8 oz. glasses. Break it down - 2 glasses 5 times. Set your watch alarm - 1 glass every hour for ten hours. Do you really want good health? Your actions always show your real intention.

1. Drink Water - Release Weight.
Water is an essential nutrient. In fact in adult men, about 60% of their bodies are water. In adult women, fat makes up more of the body than men, so they have about 55% of their bodies made of water. Water is needed to flush out the by-products of fat breakdown. When there isn’t enough water to dilute the body’s waste products, kidney stones may form. When the kidneys aren’t working to their full potential, the liver must step in and help. Once this happens the liver can’t optimally perform its other important functions. As a result, burning fat has to wait.

2. Drink Water - Feel better
In many cases, fatigue, headaches and back pain may be caused by dehydration. If you suffer from an afternoon nod off, try drinking more water at lunch. If your children complain of tummy aches and poor digestion the amount of water they’re drinking could be responsible. Muscle spasms can also be caused by not being adequately hydrated.

3. Drinking Water - Reduce Hunger
Experts say that hunger pangs are often misinterpreted cravings for water. Try drinking water before your regular meals and see if it helps you cut down on the amount of food you eat. It really works as an effective appetite suppressant. Avoid counting tea, coffee, sodas and juices in your fluid intake. Coffee and tea contain caffeine which has a diuretic effect and makes you lose water. Sodas and juices are too sweet—because the body must dilute them, they cause more dehydration.

4. Drink Water - Look Younger
When the skin is properly hydrated, it looks plump and more radiant. Water will keep the toxins flushed out and help you to cool off through perspiration. Muscles need to have enough water to make them look full too. Deprive yourself of water and you’ll see the difference in the mirror.
