How to lose Weight and stay in Control!
So the question for today is this . . . how do we lose weight and stay in control during the holidays???
Well . . . let's take the next few days and discover the possibilities . . .
Today . . . we'll talk about "water weight"
Did you know . . . that the body "WON"T" lose "FAT" until it loses its "extra" water weight first???
Or that the average person carries between 1 - 5 pounds of extra "water weight" on any given day???
How about this . . . the average adult body is made up of about 60% "water".
And in that 60% . . . if you break it down even more . . .
Our brain and heart are made up of 73% water, the lungs are about 83%, our skin 64%, muscles and kidneys 79% and our bones 31% water.
So you can clearly see . . . we need to have ample water in our body for optimal health . . .
But . . . it's the "extra" water that's unhealthy and makes us feel uncomfortable.
Okay . . . so the amount of "extra water weight" the body stores can vary a lot . . . with no two people being the same.
So how much "water weight" can we lose???
