Your body cries out for more and it’s absolutely critical to Increase Your metabolic furnace. One of the most important secrets to getting fit fast is to drink plenty of water! It’s been estimated that over 75% of the population consume less than half of the water
that they should for optimum health. Some of the symptoms associated with sub-clinical dehydration are dry damaged and
prematurely aged skin, thinning hair, constipation, acne, idiopathic dermatitis, impaired digestive function, hemorrhoids and systemic toxicity. Even slight dehydration can zap your energy and cause fatigue.

Since our entire body mass is 70% water, it only makes sense to replenish what is lost from urination, sweating and metabolic functions. Drinking plenty of water is one of the smartest things one can do to help reduce excess stored body fat and improve the
metabolism. Inadequate water intake can seriously damage your kidneys and make the job of balancing fluids much more difficult for your body.
If you’re wondering how much you need to drink each day, take your body weight and divide it in half and that gives you the number of ounces you need to consume per day. So if you weigh 140 pounds, then you need 70 ounces of water per day, which equates
to almost 2 liters. Remind yourself to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Carry a bottle of water
with you as you drive to work, run errands or enjoy the day at the pool; and no, this is not just a California thing. When you exercise, always bring a bottle of water with you and drink small amounts frequently. Don’t underestimate the amount of fluids lost from
sweating. If you need to, set an alarm twice a day to remind yourself to drink more water. If you’re one of those people who I’ve heard say, “I just don’t like water,” find a water that tastes better to you and begin telling yourself and others that you changed your mind and you
really do like good tasting water. One thing is certain, your body will love you for it. Never drink tap water, which contains over 2,000 known contaminants. Either purchase a reverse osmosis purification system for your home or purchase a high quality certified
pure bottled water. A great health hint is to go straight to your kitchen first thing in the morning when you wake up and drink a large glass of water since you’re dehydrated after hibernating for 6-8 hours. After your shower and getting ready for work, you may want to drink one
more before you leave the house. In this way, you’ve already drank one-fourth of your daily intake, which will make the rest of the day simpler.
