Water, Water, Everywhere!!!

Far more indispensable then food for the physical body is spiritual nourishment for the soul. One can do without food for a considerable time, but a man of the spirit cannot exist for a single second without spiritual nourishment.

    Water. WATER. WATER!!!

    H2O is, without a doubt, the dedicated Ana's best friend. It neutralizes stomach acids, quells tummy growls, cleanses your entire system of toxins, flushes out fats, and gets you through the next hour or two without thinking about FOOD.

    Water is also a fabulous between-nibbles filler. If you are in a situation where you have to go to a restaurant, you can fill up on water with a wedge of lemon squeezed into it and do the classic restaurant trick. A tiny nibble here, followed by a gulp or two of water, another small nibble, more water, until you are full with just enough food to keep THEM from asking questions, but not so much that YOU have to feel like a bloated pig. A nice walk afterwards will burn those calories. =)

    Drink your water ice cold to burn even more calories as your metabolism must exert extra energy to balance body temperature.

    Drink it with the juice of one lemon wedge squeezed in for extra systemic cleansing and better fat burning.

    Drink 8-10 glasses of it per day.

    You cannot live without water. People can live without food indefinitely as long as they have water to drink. People cannot survive without water for even a week.

    Pick The Right Liquid...

    Liquids are important to keep us hydrated and healthy but, wait! Liquids may contain calories too, and we know that excess calories cause weight gain over time. So, which fluids are good for weight control?

    If we rank them by importance, plain water rests at the top. Right out of the tap, it's inexpensive and convenient. If your water has an off-odor or taste, refrigerate it or buy a pitcher with a filtering device. Replace the filter as per the manufacturer's recommendations because leaving it in the pitcher too long may result in an overgrowth of organisms.

    Apart from tap or home-filtered water, it's okay to buy bottled water. Avoid the bottled waters with vitamins, minerals and herbal products added to them. These are too costly for the amount of nutrients you get and you would be better off buying a standard multivitamin.

    Next on the list is flavored water. These are great alternatives for people who dislike the taste of plain water and usually they contain zero or negligible calories. Ingredients should be listed as water and some type of flavoring—such as orange, raspberry or lime—and that's it. If you see calories on the nutrition facts label, skip that brand and move to the next. Furthermore, if the label says sugar, corn syrup, or honey, put back that product too. The flavored seltzers are quite satisfying without any sugar added.

    Sports drinks are an alternative for elite athletes, like long distance runners, or people playing vigorous sports. Unless you are expending a great deal of energy and sweating profusely for hours, most likely you don't need a sports drink. And besides, they are sweetened and contain a lot of calories.

    Remember to drink your WATER! But not all of us need only 8 fluid ounces a day. Here’s an easy method to figure out how much water you actually need each day.

    Take your body weight in pounds times (x) .66 = the number of fluid ounces your body needs each day.

    Drink Up!!!
