Water, water everywhere!


Tuesday, July 02, 2013


Do you ever dream of being warm again? Are you one of the many dieters who are simply COLD while losing weight?

When the body has taken in sufficient water, body temperature can be maintaned for optimal metabolism. Dehydration can make the body temperature drop slightly, and with a reduction in temperature, the body will attempt to help raise temperature by storing fat to act as an insulator. So, drinking too little water can contribute to an inefficient metabolism and holding of fat.

So what should we do?


Seems simple enough, right? A minimum of eight-8 ounce glasses per day. Can you do it? Ohhhh, I think soooooo!

    That might explain why I'm cold all the time.

    That was a really big help. I'm trying to increase my intake and that gives me another reason for it.

    I love my water, but on some days when I get so busy, I realize that I've forgotten to drink it like I should and this is a reminder that I need to have it by me all the time that I can remember how much I need it! You know when you're sanding and painting and you realize after some time that your mouth is really dry?! Just to keep that water container nearby so you can quench that thirst no matter what! Thanks for the good reminder! Have a good, terrific week! emoticon emoticon

    I don't like to drink water except when it is extremely hot out - that's it. I don't like the flavor of water at all. emoticon But I also know it is important. Your blog may encouragement me to read what water does for the body further and maybe use that knowledge to help me. Thanks for sharing! emoticon
Love, Chelsea emoticon

    My son is a Registered Dietician working in a clinical setting. He tells me that the 8 glasses of water (plain H2O) is new, pushed by the bottled water industry since the 70s. We are supposed to consume liquid. Historically water was contaminated and people drank hot liquids or beer to stay safe. Most food is primarily water. Water can be helpful for people trying to consumer fewer calories, but it isn't essential in its pure form for health.
