Why Drink Water

drink waterDrink Water

I hear this all the time. “Drink your water young man!” Why? All the answers I get are things like “Well it’s good for you” or “you know our bodies are 80% water!”

Here are some answers that make sense to me.

Lose Weight

Water is great for losing weight. Drinking water instead of soda or drinks with more calories and sugar can help you lose weight because your body has no calories to burn and water is a good appetite suppressant. Who knew!

Have More Energy
I know when I drink more water I have more energy. It turns out that I am dehydrated most of the time so when I can drink enough water it alleviates the symptoms of dehydration which are a lack of energy, fatigue, muscle weakness and general malaise.
There was a study done by Dr. F. Batmanghelidj about using water as medicine to cure headaches and many other ailments. Interesting reading. Buy The Book Here.

Body Cleanse
Cleansing is kind of an obvious one to me. Water in toxins out. Here is a great way to start a cleanse >>> Check It Out!

Decrease Heart Attack Risk
There was a study done over six years that showed people who drink more that 5 glasses of water a day had a 41% decreased risk of a heart attack than those that drank 2 glasses.

Just Feel Better
Basically the best reasons to drink water for me is that it makes me feel better. So I have my bottle of water right by my side and I’m going to drink more water.

Happy Hydrating!
