Lose Weight by Drinking Water

Filed under: water — Tags: , , — robertprice @ 10:41 pm

A recent study conducted in Virginia claims that drinking water before meals can actually aid in losing weight. It was found that if a person drinks two glasses of water before each meal (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) they will lose approximately five pounds more than someone who did not use this technique when dieting.

Water is essential for the body. Drinking it is not only beneficial for dieters but also for people looking to maintain their current condition. For those looking to establish a healthy meal plan water acts as a great substitute for all those sugar packed drinks. Not only does water make a person feel fuller but also does not have any calories. Unlike your sugary drinks which will make you crave more, water will actually quench your thirst.

Forty-eight people from the ages of fifty-five to seventy-five were observed for a period of twelve weeks. The forty-eight people were split into groups of two. One drank two glasses of water before each meal and the other did not. All other factors were controlled and as similar to each other as possible.

The result of this was that the group of people that did not drink water before meals lost an average of eleven pounds whereas the others lost an average of fifteen and a half pounds. This is quite a significant difference in comparison o the small change that was made- water consumption.

It is important to remember that even though drinking water can help lose weight. Drinking too much water can lead to very serious health conditions or even death.

Water vs. Coke *Updated*

For many Americans Coca Cola has become their favorite drink. While this sugary liquid is okay once and a while, too many Americans have completely forgotten about drinking water. While water does not necessarily have that caffeine pick-me-up that coke does, it gives your body a more healthy energy boost. Not to mention water is a lot healthier for your body anyway.
Just to put things in to perspective here are a few statistics you may want to pay very close attention to.

• 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated and many have such a weak thirst mechanism that it is often mistaken for hunger.

• Mild dehydration can slow the metabolism up to 3%, but one glass of water can eliminate the desire for a midnight snack.

• Lack of water is the number one cause of daytime fatigue.

• A drop of only 2% in body water can cause troubles with short term memory, problems with basic math, and difficulty focusing on a computer screen.

[Updated From Source]

•Every 240mL of water you drink can decrease your risk of developing bladder cancer by 7%

•Men that drink only 1 or no glasses of water a day are 4 times more likely to develop colorectal cancer than those that drink 4 or more glasses of water every day.

•Women who are not receiving adequate amounts of water daily are almost 5 times (4.7) more likely to develop breast cancer than those who receive proper amounts.

COKE

• Coke can be used to clean many things, for example: Toilet bowls, sinks, corrosion from car battery terminals, rust on car bumpers, and grease from clothes.

• Coke can help loosen a rusted bolt.

• The active ingredient in Coke is Phosphoric acid which can contribute to calcium loss in bones and contributes to osteoporosis.

• Trucks that transport Coca-Cola syrup must place a “highly corrosive materials” sign on the truck.

So next time you go to grab a drink, think about what you’re putting into your body.

Ways To Cool Down Without Air Conditioning


The summer certainly has kicked into full gear with the heat reaching almost unbearable heights. For many of us there is no air conditioning installed in our houses or apartments, or not any proper A/C at least. However, there is some good news for those that don’t have air conditioning. There are still ways to cool down during these long, dry, hot summer days.

Water, Water, Water. Use it- Soak a t-shirt that you have then wring it out. Go outside and sit in a chair, preferably one that is like a lawn chair and will allow air to pass through it. This will help cool you down. However, use lukewarm water because it may become too cold if freezing water is used.

Water, Water, Water. Drink it!- When it gets hot we need water to keep our bodies hydrated. Also a cool glass of water will help you cool down.

Ice, Ice, Baby- There are two things that I like to do that involve ice. The first is to grab an ice cube or two and hold it to my wrists and neck, where you can feel a pulse, and this normally cools me down pretty fast. The second thing I like to do is to freeze 2 or 3 jugs of water. Then place a towel or something that will catch water under them. Position a fan behind the now frozen jugs and just let the fan blow air at you. I call this the poor-mans air conditioning. The fan blows air while the ice jugs cool the air.

Sweat baby, sweat- Sweating actually cools you off by taking some of the heat away with the water vapor. However, I would only recommend when you are at home, not very many people enjoy being near someone who is really sweaty and smells like BO, especially at work.

Dress appropriately- This is one of those obvious things that almost every does anyway. If you’re going out try to wear light colored shorts and a t-shirt. If you’re alone at home, go commando. Being naked is an excellent way to cool off, and it’s also extremely comfortable. However, if you live with other people, wearing your underwear (ie- boxers) is an alternative.
