water water water!!!

We all know that our body is made up primarily of water. We all know that our body needs water to do its basic functions. Did you know how crucial water is to weight loss? You know that "magic pill" that everyone is looking for for weight loss?? Guess what, I know what it is!! It is exercise, proper diet and WATER!!!! Thats right water!

This is how it works:

Water supresses your appetite naturally and helps in the body's metabolism of stored fat. Many studies have shown that if there is a decrease in water intake fat deposits will increase. If the body does not get enough water then the kidneys can not function properly. When the kidneys cannot take on their full load, it has to dump some of its load into the liver. One of the primary functions of the liver is to metabolize stored fat itno energy that is usable for the body. If the liver is having to take on some of the work of the kidneys then it cant operate fully either, know what happens? The liver metabolizes less fat and more fat remains stored in the body and weight loss comes to a halt! The average person should drink 8- 8oz glasses everyday (2 quarts). An overweight person needs more. They need an additional glass for every 25 lbs they are overweight.

I know I preach on water a lot but it is soooo important! Drink up ladies!!
