Show Title: Feeling Good Naked


Drinking water, and lots of it, is the single most important key to building healthy body esteem. Why? Because, when we increase our water consumption, our bodies are properly hydrated and we don't retain fluids. Drinking more water actually lessens abdominal bloating and fluid retention and acts as a natural appetite suppressant. Imagine, just by drinking more water, you can lose 5 pounds in two weeks without making any other dietary changes.

But, that's not all. Drinking water hydrates the skin cells leaving it healthier and younger in appearance. Drinking the proper amount of water helps the kidneys function at their best so that toxins and wastes are properly eliminated from the body. And, if that's not enough, drinking more water will help improve sleep and reduce headaches. So, with less water weight, healthier skin and more restful sleep, you're well on your way to building healthy body esteem. Drink up!! (Adapted from Feel Good Naked by Laure Redmond)


Here's some more facts about why it's important to drink water.

1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. This figure likely
applies to half the world population.

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.
4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.
5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?

Remember to take care of your SELF and drink plenty of water.

Blessings and Love,
