Don’t forget about water! Yes water is one of the most important elements that our body really yes really needs to function properly. Do you take in 6 to 8 glasses of water a day? If not you should!

I know of one fellow who does take in water with every meal. I often thought “drinking water with the meal”? No way for me. What did I drink with a typical meal – lemonade, coke, maybe a beer – never water. I didn’t like the taste of water.

Also this fellow above never used to drink water at a restaurant. What change his mind? His little visit to his doctor changed his thinking. The Doctor had noted that his body was lacking water.

His Doctor recommended that he start drinking more water. Drink at least 6 t0 8 glasses each day no matter what. That was a little struggle for him but eventually he started liking water and today his appearance and skin tone improved 100{f19aa3268e0de58f68955454d58a1a58d35e804fdb04b2f57dd6dc7aad4ec259}.

Now A little side benefit when eating out your bill will be quite reduced due to not ordering drinks. Yes restaurants love to bring you drinks and add to your bill. Drink water and help your body and wallet.

Take a quick “water” inventory. Do you drink water with your foods you eat or crave most? Drink plenty of water with Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, etc. Limited intake of alcohol and caffeine make a pretty good recipe for your water balance.

Water can directly affect your weight, mood, attitude and general sense of well-being-your “balance.” Wait a minute! What does water have to do with weight loss? Water is not important. Besides you don’t like water. Wait a minute! Guess what?

First of all, water has no calories, is fat-free and cholesterol-free, and is low in sodium.

Second, it is an appetite suppressant.

Third, water helps the body to metabolize stored fat.

How? Well, when the kidneys do not have enough water, they cannot function properly. The liver steps in as a backup, but doing so hinders its ability to metabolize fat effectively.

The fat thus remains stored in the body, and you gain weight. Hence, proper water intake is a key to weight loss. Overweight people [over fat] have been generally found to be more susceptible to heart disturbances, certain types of cancer, and diseases of the pancreas, gallbladder and kidneys diabetes to name a few.

When people who are trying to lose weight don’t drink enough water, the body can’t metabolize the fat adequately. Lack of sufficient water in the body has long been recognized as a contributory factor in many diseases, especially among the aged and aging.

Accretion of fat around the liver, heart, or other internal organs may interfere directly with their proper function. The mortality rate in surgery is higher and in general the life span is shorter. Overweight and Obese persons are prone to diabetes.”

Sometimes the best foods for the person who must watch his weight are the most expensive ones.

The least expensive foods [fast foods and processed foods] are usually high in calories and low in protein, vitamins and minerals.

So people make the inexpensive and starchy foods their chief source of the necessary calories and not only become overweight, but also eventually develop conditions brought on by the dietary deficiencies.”

There are a great many people who just do not realize the importance of a diet of meats, vegetables and fruits along with Acai on which they might maintain a high level of health and also a normal weight.

Although dieters may lose weight on low-carbohydrate diets, there is little data available on the long-term effects of such diets. Some researchers worry that a protein-heavy diet might lead to liver and kidney troubles, osteoporosis, and other serious health problems.

“Much of the yummy stuff in low-carbs diets-thinks of filet mignon with bĂ©arnaise sauce-comes loaded with artery-clogging saturated fats. A major risk factor for heart disease and stroke is evident.

In contrast diets rich in fiber and complex carbohydrates, found in fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains are good for the body along with plenty of water.

Drink lots of water your body will love you for it. Many studies associated with longevity, have proven that lasting weight control is achieved with these simple foods.

In addition these foods reduced risk of cancer, reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, reduced risk of diabetes, reduced risk of gastrointestinal disorders and overall health promotion.”
