Love Your Body Day #3: H2O FLOW

love your bod image 5

It’s Day 3 of my “Love Your Body” series, and today I encourage you to Drink Up (water that is).  H2O is vital for your vigor.  On days that you exercise, drink at least 2 liters (4 over the counter-size bottles) and on days that you don’t exercise shoot for at least 1 liter.  Doing so allows you to reap lots of luscious health benefits.

Love water to love your body…

  • Faster Metabolism. Eight glasses of water a day not only prevents dehydration, but increases resting metabolism.” – University of Utah Study
  • Regular Digestion.  The right amount of Fiber and Fluid keep you “regular.”  My magic cleanse formula has always been 1 apple and 1 bottle of water 😉
  • Calorie Control.  Being well hydrated makes you feel full, so you eat less.  Also, since water has zero calories, you can keep your mouth busy with no penalty.
  • More Energy.  Water energizes your muscles so they can fire away in your workouts.  On the flip side, dehydration makes you lethargic.
  • Temperature Control.  Adequate H2O keeps your body temperature in check.  This is especially important when your working out or in a hot climate.
  • Balanced Bodily Fluids.  Your body is 60% water which mostly consists of bodily fluids.  These fluids are critical for executing your bodily functions.  Stay hydrated to keep your bodily fluids in balance.

Love your body today by staying hydrated and letting the H2O FLOW! #GRIT
