RECIPE OF THE WEEK!
Did you know that water is an essential part of losing weight? Water helps to filter the body's many toxins along with causing your body to become regulated, relieving constipation. Drinking water (along with eating the correct nutrients) with your meal can also help make you feel more full, causing you to eat less food. Studies show that people who drink less water can have increased risk of fat deposits in their body. Kidneys are an essential part to our bodies functioning properly. They require an adequate amount of water to truly function. Without enough water, the kidney releases some of their toxins within the liver. The liver functions as an organ that turns fat into usable energy. As a result of not drinking water, the liver and the kidney cannot truly function correctly, and the liver holds on to fat, instead of using it for energy. Many people are also under the false impression that in order to get rid of bloating, they should decrease the amount of fluid intakes. This is a fallacy. If you are having a severe bloating problem, the correct way to relieve this problem is to drink more water. The body is likely holding on to fluid because it is not receiving enough.
Lack of water can lead to dehydration that can drain energy and make an individual feel extremely tired. The average person is constantly losing water through sweating, breathing, perspiration, urine and bowel movements. Most medical experts suggest drinking eight - 8 ounce glasses of water a day, however, this may vary depending on the gender and size of the person. Drinking water also helps to cleanse your skin and other vital organs. DRINK WATER!
