Yes, yes, I know you know that staying hydrated is really important. But it’s even more really important when you’re in the process of losing weight. Why? Well, when you burn up and release all the extra energy stored in fat cells, you also burn up and release whatever was being stored in them. Without water, these substances can become toxic to the body and fatigue your entire system.
To flush things out and keep you feeling fresh and alert, you need to make sure you’re having enough water.
It’s simply not true that you need 8 glasses of water a day – one of the worst nutrition old wives tales out there.
In our effort to kill all of these silly external rules and tune instead into our own appetites and intuitions, we’ll try to respect our natural thirst.
