Enjoy good health with WATER
As one of the most important elements of the human body, water makes up approximately 70 percent of our muscles, and about 75 percent of our brain, playing a vital role in the proper functioning of the body, and making it an essential part of a healthy diet. Drinking water also forces fat to be used as fuel, making it one of the main keys to success in shedding any extra pounds. And, without adequate water, kidneys are unable to function properly - prompting the liver to pick up the slack. This causes additional problems for dieters because the liver cannot properly metabolize stored fat as energy, resulting in more fat being stored in the body. Furthermore, water effectively suppresses appetites, aids in proper digestion, and acts as one of the vehicles for circulating nutrients and oxygen through the body, as well as assisting the body in eliminating waste. Water lubricates joints, protects organs, helps maintain a normal body temperature, and is absolutely necessary for exercise, and even day- to- day performance. With this in mind, it’s easy to understand why drinking enough water - a minimum of TEN, 8-ounce glasses a day, every day - is perhaps the single most important step in determining diet and fitness success. (((a more detailed formula for determining the exact amount of water your particular body needs each and every day to function at it’s best can be found on page 63 of Maximize Your Metabolism - get it now at www.MegaMetabolism.com))) However, because the average body loses 8 to 12 cups of water a day, this can be a challenge. Start by trying to drink 10 glasses each day, and work up to one full gallon per day. Sound tough? Don’t get discouraged. With the following suggestions, you’ll find drinking enough water is not hard, and will be well worth the initial effort by quickly bringing into your life all the positive changes you’re looking for including fat loss, healthier skin/hair and nails, increased energy and alertness, and far more. Start tomorrow by drinking a glass of water when you wake up. For a nice morning pick me up you might even add a few tablespoons of lemon juice and a small pinch of cayenne pepper to your first glass. Then prepare a large water bottle to take with you on your drive to work or to school. You can even try putting the bottle in the freezer the night before, and filling it with water right before you leave to start your day. This keeps the water cooler longer, and ensures it will be a good drinking temperature during your morning commute. I used to start every morning by spending almost two hours devouring the local newspaper. After I’d read about all the murders, rapes, embezzlements, drug overdoses and all other manner of mayhem, I’d head to the office – and always wondered why I felt so bad when I got there :-) For over ten years now I’ve started every day by reading inspirational and motivational material, and it’s amazing what’s happened in my life... or is it? It’s an old worn expression but “garbage in, garbage out” might just be true. I’ve got several favorite sources for my daily inspiration, and one of them is called “Insight of the Day.” It’s a short motivational or inspirational quote that provides something positive to focus on throughout the day.

I’ve arranged for all my readers to get this valuable advantage absolutely F*REE, but only if you sign up before the end of today at my personal link: http://www.wealthhabits.com Drink a glass of water in between every meal, and a glass in the evening, but not to close to bedtime. Take a filled water bottle with you wherever you go. This makes getting the water you need easy, and ensures you will look better (and feel better). At work, keep your water bottle filled and with you at your desk. Reach for it instead of unnecessary, high-sugar, high-fat snacks. Sip on it all day, adding ice cubes and additional water as needed. Next, change from caffeinated coffee, tea and soda to decaffeinated alternatives. Caffeine depletes your water supply, and can make it difficult for your body to get all the water it needs. For every caffeinated beverage you drink, drink an additional glass of water. This small step can make a big difference. Keep in mind that exercise, hot weather, low humidity, altitude, a high-fiber diet, and consumption of caffeine and alcoholic beverages all increase your daily water loss. During these times, take extra steps to ensure you offset the increased water loss with increased water consumption.
