More Water = More Pounds Off

Researchers say that a shortfall of water causes a chemical imbalance in the brain. Aim for eight 8-oz. glasses of water a day to make sure you stay hydrated.

Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator so each time you open the fridge, you'll have a pitcher of water right in front of you to remind you.

In a study, dieters who drank tow 8-oz glasses of water before meals lost five more pounds after 12 weeks, than those who didn't drink it!

Filling up on the water helped them eat 90 fewer calories per meal without even trying.

Keep a glass of water by your bedside and drink it as soon as you wake up. Even mild dehydration keeps your brain and body in sleep mode!

The proof: "In a study, volunteers who lost 1% to 2% of their body's water stores through exercise-the same amount you lose as you sleep-felt tired and fuzzy-headed, while those who remained hydrated with water during the workout felt energetic and upbeat.

Stay hydrated all day!!
