Living Healthier Starts with You
Congratulations! You’re starting a journey towards living healthier, which will not only make you look better, but feel refreshed, too.
In the first 30 days, you can expect to:
- Feel more refreshed and happier.
- Learn how to give your body the right foods and nutrients it needs to run efficiently.
- Lose some weight, depending on how much your body is carrying.
On this first day, devote your efforts to this life change by drinking enough water to balance and regulate the body’s performance. Everything you do requires water to keep you going.
Just because you’re upping your H2O intake doesn’t mean you can’t have tea, coffee or carbonated, calorie-free beverages. Have them in moderation and balance them out with water. A good rule of thumb is to drink about half of your body weight in ounces per day. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 75 ounces of water.
Drink as much water as your body needs. You can determine the need by the color of your urine. A light color means you’re sufficiently hydrated; darker colors mean you’re moving toward dehydration. You will start to notice that some feelings of hunger are actually feelings of thirst in disguise. Next time you think you’re hungry, get a glass of water.
DID YOU KNOW? Japanese researcher and doctor of alternative medicine Masaru Emoto showed that water carries energy and is affected by music, words and prayer.
