Rehydration is the Key

Thursday, June 11, 2009

That's what they say - rehydrate! Drink your water! Your body needs it!

It's said to clear toxins and to help your body work optimally and that proper hydration can even reduce pain. That's all well and good!

But I strongly dislike what my body does during the process of rehydration. It means trips to the restroom every 20 minutes, and my system goes into mucus and poo overload. This is a good sign, I'm told. It means that my body is clearing out the junk. It means that I'm giving my body a very important tool in the fight for healthy/sexy/cute. And I know that I'll not have to go through this again if I'm responsible and maintain proper hydration in the future. I'm happy about all of that. I really am.

But it would be spectacular if my impatience for it to be DONE would make it already so. :)

    Sometimes it can be a matter of not just how much but also when water is consumed.

    Apparently consuming 2 glasses before eating anytime can help in the quest for weight-loss.

    We routinely consume psyllium husk on a daily basis(the core ingredient of such products as Benefibre), this generally leads to a single poo elimination session each day.
    As you get older it is a good idea to limit late afternoon and evening fluid consumption to limit overnight bathroom trips.
