Information - Why it is important and how much you should
(Sandy - sandign)
are some of the things that water will help the body with:
the body in metabolizing stored fat, because your liver
is overloaded when your kidneys don't get enough water.
Your liver metabolizes fat, and it can't do that 100% if
it is doing the kidneys job.
fat deposits in the body
fluid retention problems. If you don't give your body water,
it will hold it so as not to lose it.
soduim buildup in the body
to maintain proper muscle tone.
the body of waste and toxins
a minimum of 64 ounces per day (2 quarts)
an additional 8 ounces per day for every 25 pounds overweight
is better to drink the water cold, it is absorbed quicker
and may burn more calories
clean water, bottled or filtered
found another site that said to multiply your weight by .66
and that's how much water you should drink. Have no idea why
that number. But it also said not to go below 64 oz.
