Improve Your Health & Lose Weight Simply

Of the 4 macronutrients;
water, protein, carbs & fat- water is the most essential.
But what a lot of people don’t know is why.

A recent study in the Journal of Applied Physiology (7/10/08) reveals that being dehydrated can significantly impair the strength and body fat results you might be looking for from a resistance exercise program.

Dehydration caused;

increased concentrations of the stress hormones cortisol & norepinephrine (from the adrenal glands). These hormones lead to fat storage.

decrease in testosterone response to exercise

alters carb & fat metabolism

All drinks that don’t have caffeine or alcohol count towards your necessary intake (>66 oz. X your bodyweight) for the day

benefits of proper hydration;
weight loss, mental clarity, joint relief, better sleeping habits

Keep a bottle with you, and if you’re way below that number from the formula above, build up slowly so that you don’t spend the whole day in the bathroom.

live right, Keith

    Thanks for getting the word about water and the benfits of hydration! I, too, had a client who drank NO water! None! She started slowly increasing the amount of water each day and has lost 5 lbs! Prior to this she was losing no weight what-so-ever.
    Thanks again! Kathleen
