The Joy of Water

         The Joy and Necessity of Water


Don’t forget to increase your water intake this summer!  Not only will it help you get through those hot June days, but it will also contribute to your fat loss.  Why?  Basically, it comes down to this:  Your kidneys cannot function properly without enough water.  When this happens, the liver must take over the kidneys’ jobs and ignore its own.  Well, one of the liver’s primary functions is to metabolize fat.  When the liver is distracted with the kidneys’ extra work, it leaves little time for the liver to metabolize your stored fat.  Remember, not drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day is like not taking a bath for a month for your insides!                  The key to a healthy body and fast metabolism is lots of water!
