Water: the elixir of life

Tip 2 from the 7 keys to successful weight loss for life:- HYDRATE!

Water is the elixir of life, yet few of us drink enough of it. We can live for weeks and weeks without food, but only around a week without water. Water is the basis of all life and that includes you: your muscles are 75 percent water; your blood, the body’s transportation system for nutrients, 82 percent water; your lungs, providing your body with oxygen, 90 percent water; your brain, control centre of your body, 76 percent water; even your bones are 25 percent water. You are mostly water. Your planet is mostly water. You must drink. Dehydration can be disastrous. Water is crucial to your well being.

Water: the elixer of life

 

 

You are not just what you eat; you are what you drink.

WATER TABLE

 

 

Body Weight Target intake of water
140lbs (10 stones) 70 ounces (2 litres)
200lbs (14 stones 4lb) 100 ounces (almost 3 litres)
250lbs (17 stones 12lb) 125 ounces (3.5 litres)

 

Eat 70 percent water-based foods, of which 80 percent is veg and 20 percent fruit; 10 percent veg and fish proteins; 10 percent complex carbs; 10 percent oils.

 

If your body is over 75 percent water, it makes sense to eat at least 70 percent water-based or plant-based foods, in other words, fruit, veg, and salad – as these foods allow your body to cleanse itself. Let’s face it: if you are not cleansing your body, you are clogging it up. So to gain maximum nutrients, eat as much raw foods as you can: either uncooked, or cooked below a certain temperature, unprocessed, organic, conscious and wild! Include nuts, seeds, or sprouted whole grains. Raw may also include unpasteurized fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, or kombucha. Raw foods can be life-changing. There’s lots of choice – almonds, carrots, dates, avocados, limes, celery, cauliflower…
