Great Healthy Wonders of Water: Diet, Exercise and Discipline

Picture of Wonders of Water


Stay Slimmer With Water

  • Trying to lose weight? Water revs up metabolism and helps you feel full.
  • Replace calorie-laden beverages with water, and drink a glass before meals to help you feel fuller.
  • Drinking more water also helps amp up metabolism  especially if your glass is icy cold. Your body must work to warm the water up, burning a few extra calories in the process.

Water Boosts Your Energy

  • If you’re feeling drained and depleted, get a pick-me-up with water. Dehydration makes you feel fatigued.
  • Water helps the blood transport oxygen and other essential nutrients to your cells.
  • If you’re getting enough water, your heart also doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood throughout your body.
Lower Stress With Water
  • 85% of your brain tissue is water. If you’re dehydrated, both your body and your mind will be stressed.
  • If you’re feeling thirsty, you’re already a little dehydrated.
  • To keep stress levels down, keep a glass of water at your desk or tote a sports bottle and sip regularly.

Build Muscle Tone With Water

  • Drinking water helps prevent muscle cramping and lubricates joints in the body.
  • When you’re well hydrated, you can exercise longer and stronger without “hitting the wall.”

Nourish Your Skin

  • Fine lines and wrinkles are deeper when you’re dehydrated. Water is nature’s own beauty cream.
  • Drinking water hydrates skin cells and plumps them up, making your face look younger.
  • It also flushes out impurities and improves circulation and blood flow, leaving your face clean, clear, and glowing.

Stay Regular With Water

  • Along with fiber, water is essential to good digestion.
  • Water helps dissolve waste particles and passes them smoothly through your digestive tract.
  • If you’re dehydrated, your body absorbs all the water, leaving your colon dry and making it more difficult to pass waste.

Water Reduces Kidney Stones

  • The rate of painful kidney stones is rising because people – including children aren’t drinking enough water.
  • Water dilutes the salts and minerals in your urine that form the solid crystals known as kidney stones.
  • Kidney stones can’t form in diluted urine, so reduce your risk with plenty of water!

Are You Drinking Enough Water?

  • Generally, nutritionists recommend we follow the “8×8 rule.”
  • Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.
  • You may need more water if you exercise or sweat heavily.
  • You may need less water if you drink other beverages often.
