Super-Hydrate Your System

Drinking plenty of water is essential to the success of this program. Drinking the recommended amount of water can seem like a challenge at first. Stick with it. Carry a large sports bottle or similar item with you throughout the day. After several weeks, you will find that you actually thirst for more water, and the amounts recommended are easily reached.

Super hydration aids the release of fat in a number of ways:

First, the kidneys are unable to function without adequate water. When they fail to work to capacity some of their load is dumped onto the liver.

This diverts the liver from its function, which is metabolized stored fat into usable energy. Because it’s performing the chores of water-depleted kidneys, the liver metabolizes less fat.

Second. Overeating can be averted through water intake, as water can keep the stomach feeling full and satisfied between meals.

Third, ice-cold water requires calories to warm it to core body temperatures. In fact, 1 gallon of ice cold water generates 123 calories of heat energy.

You’ll be drinking from 1 to 1 5/8gallons of water each day on the following super-hydration schedule:

Week 1-- drink 4, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Week 2-- drink 4.5, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Week 3-- drink 5, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Week 4-- drink 5.5, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Week 5-- drink 6, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Week 6-- drink 6.5, 32-oz. bottles of ice-cold water per day.

Plan on making more than a dozen trips to the restroom, especially during the first week of the program. Remember, your body is an adaptive system and it will soon accommodate the increased water consumption.

Although it is doubtful that you could ever drink too much water, a few ailments can be negatively affected by large amounts of fluid. For example, anyone with a kidney disorder or anyone who takes diuretics, should consult a physician or health care professional before going on this recommended water-drinking schedule. If you have any doubts about the recommendations, play it safe and check with your physician or health care professional. At all costs, attempt to drink natural spring water and avoid chlorine and fluoride.
