Tip of the Day...

I am going to try to give a tip of the day...this might be a tip every few days but thought it would help to do little things that add up to be the big long term health benefits.

Tip # 1
Drink Drink Drink H2O!
Benefits include:
1. flushing your body of toxins
2. suppresses appetite
3. Reduces fat deposits in the body.
4. Relieves fluid retention problems.
If you don't give your body water, it will hold it so as not to lose it.
5. Reduces sodium buildup in the body.
6. Helps to maintain proper muscle tone.
7. Relieves constipation....hehehe sorry it's true.

If you don't know how much water to drink, all you do is take your weight, divide it by 2, and that's how many ounces of water you should be drinking daily. I just got a water bottle and I know I need to fill it up 3 times a day to get all my water in. I just bring it everywhere. I have been trying to not eat after dinner. It helps me not to snack when i drink water at night because it makes me feel full. Also I like the Crystal Light drop ins, yummy. Happy drinking!
