ALL ABOUT WATER
75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
When you drink enough water, the kidneys function properly, and the liver can work to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body
One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving back the muscles' natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Water is probably the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. Water aids in suppressing the appetite and in metabolizing stored fat.
Water RETENTION is caused when the body perceives its lack of water as a threat to its survival so it'll attempt to hold on to every drop.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
Recommended by the AMA at least 64 oz. daily. If you are attempting to lose weight, drink 8 oz. more for every 25-30 pounds you want to lose.
