Drink more water!

Hello world

I'm sure you've seen this image before.

Drink Water instead of Sodas and Juices!

It's quite shocking for me to see all the sugar that is put into all these drinks. The amounts are crazy huge but people don't notice them while drinking.

The equation is simple:

Sugar = Fat

Consuming a lot of sugar increases insulin levels in the blood which selectively deposits energy from food/sodas/juices into fat cells.

What do sodas and juices do to you?
  • Weight gain
  • Obesity and Diabetes
  • Triggers accelerated aging
  • Rotting teeth
  • Cell Damage
I don't like sodas at all since they hurt my mouth with all the fizziness but these past months I shared my bf's sodas because he gets the large cup and he always forgets to ask for a cup of water >.> anyways I noticed that after having some of his sodas I got bloated quite fast and in a few months I noticed I gained weight. I decided that I would rather stay thirsty than having sodas again and I noticed my clothes getting loose again (of course it's also because I stopped eating junk/fast food)

I love water and it wasn't hard for me to stop drinking sodas and I know for a fact that it helped me lose some of those ugly pounds I got these past months.

Juices are filled with sugar as well so for that reason I like to make my own juices and smoothies and I NEVER add sugar or any sweetener. I enjoy the sweetness of the fruits :)

Benefits of drinking water are endless!
  • Weight lose
  • Calorie Control
  • Clear skin
  • Brain booster
  • Helps digestion
  • Helps eliminate toxins
  • Gives you energy
  • and so many more!!
Drinking water at the right time maximizes its effectiveness on the human body:
  • Two glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs.
  • One glass of water 30 mins before a meal helps digestion.
  • One glass of water before taking a shower helps lower blood pressure.
  • One glass of water before going to bed helps you avoid a stroke or heart attack.
I always keep in my room two 16 oz. glass bottles and refill them with water all the time (I don't like the plastic ones since it helps contamination and I don't want to be part of the problem) and I usually drink around 64 oz / 2 liters per day.

If you are drinking sugary drinks I strongly suggest you to stop and make a change because we only live once and we better treat our bodies like temples and only allow good things!

Have a healthy day!!
