Boost your metabolism! Day 3. Is water really important?

If you get through 3 days you will start to feel a little better. If you have been craving sugar it should begin to feel better after three days under your belt. Hang in there. Question of the day: Does tea count as water? NO! Tea is actually a diuretic. So how do you get all that water in if you are not used to it? If you really haven't been drinking much water trying to fit in 64ounces a day can be quite a challenge. The good news is, if you haven't been drinking much water and you start fitting 8 glasses in, you will feel the benefit of it! A great book about the benefits of water : Here is some information from the book "Water, the ultimate cure" Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink Drink one glass of water every hour as a good rule of thumb Start your day with 1/2 to 1 quart of water to flush your digestive system Get in the habit of carrying a water bottle with you always. Drink the purest water available Proper hydration can reverse and improve a wide range of health problems such as: allergies asthma hypertension cholesterol premature aging Alzheimers back pain migraine headaches obesity depression Signs of dehydration fatigue Anxiety Irritability Depression Cravings cramps headache Heartburn joint and back pain Fibromyalgia constipation hypertension I believe good food, exercise and plenty of water can heal many ailments. Eat food, Not too much. Mostly plants. Lots of water! If you are someone who has not been drinking much water this simple shift can make a huge difference. Do your best to at least fit in 64 ounces regularly! ENJOY! Love, Patricia THere is still time to invite your friends to join you in this challenge. Spread the word.
