Water makes such a difference!

"Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink." 

Seems that way at my house.  I'm not drinking nearly enough water! 

Water is an amazing substance.  My friend Michael, owner of Clear Water Solutions here in Utah, is constantly reminding me that "The solution to pollution is dilution!" And he's right.

Especially on a weight loss plan.  Water carries away waste products, and when we're actively losing releasing weight, we're also releasing extra waste products, or toxins.  When you don't drink enough water, your body holds on to it.  Drinking plenty of water helps release the water weight! 

Water also helps with those nagging aches and pains - lower back pain, PMS, headache, and general grouchiness, 

Most of us just don't drink enough water.  We substitute soda, coffee, or tea.  And that's not good enough

Nothing quite beats pure water.   Make sure you drink plenty of it.

Now, you don't want to try to drink all of your water at once,  That's as harmful as not drinking it at all!  You want to be drinking plenty of water throughout the day. 

Find a beautiful glass that you love drinking out of and keep it full.

I like my water ice cold (like cold enough to make my teeth hurt!), so I make sure I have plenty of ice.  Or I'll freeze a bottle of water (or several) and sip on it throughout the day.  It keeps my skin young looking, helps me avoid backaches, and helps me release both pounds and inches.

Yeah, you might need to go to the bathroom more often, but really - that's a good think.  I often visualize the extra weight going down the toilet! 

Did you drink your water today?
