I know that the cornerstone of healthy weight loss and the key to the proper functioning of all my organs rely on proper hydration… water. In fact it’s the grand daddy, the big kahuna, el numero uno of the weight loss tips!
This, my first Change of the Week, is to drink more water. Because I am so overweight, all of the information I am reading says I should be drinking about 4 to 5 litres of water per day! Yikes!
But I also know that building that Change Muscle requires that I not just jump in with both feet. “How To Build The Muscle Of Change” My pledge is to drink a minimum of 2.5 litres of water per day. My intention will be to make it up to 4 litres, but I pledge to drink at least the 2.5!
Some Benefits of Water: – All of your body’s chemical reactions, including your metabolism, depend on water. - The kidneys can’t function properly without enough water. - Drinking enough water is the best treatment for fluid retention. - Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. - Water helps rid the body of waste. – Lack of water can sap your energy and make you tired. – Water is calorie-free and readily available in and out of your home. – Water helps to replenish skin tissues, moisturizes skin and increases skin elasticity. – Drinking water helps you lose weight because it flushes down the by-products of fat breakdown.
