 The Importance of Water for overall Health

 and WeightControl

by Tom Ryan: BA, MA, Owner 

Tired of hearing about water?  Me too…however, the more you work to improve your health, the more you return to doing some of the basic things that our moms probably told us about (as we rolled our eyes!) 

Water is the only effective replacement for water!  Sounds crazy, I know, but it’s true!    Coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcoholic beverages have a diuretic effect that can actually hinder your body from absorbing water. Drinking 5 cups of coffee per day is enough to increase urinary flow by 40%, possibly causing a negative water balance.  Humans need and eventually crave water.  We are essentially carbon based, water bred life forms!  (hows that for science-y talk?) Water is critical to the chemistry (ergo biology) of our bodies.

To Assist with Weight Control:

Remember to drink one pint of water before eating; doing so will act as an appetite suppressant and will help you lose weight

To Assist with Exercise: 

To avoid sore muscles-Drink eight ounces of water every 15 minutes of exercise

Additional Benefits of Water Consumption

Mental Concentration - Water is critical for mental awareness. Being low on water by just  one quart will  significantly reduce concentration.

Athletic Performance- Water is crucial to aerobic output and endurance. Losing 2%  of  body water can create a 20% decrease in physical performance.

Heartburn - Approximately 30% of indigestion is the result of dehydration . To digest an average meal, the body needs a  lot of water- sometimes up to  one quart!

Dry Skin - The dry skin cure that many doctors will recommend is as simple as drinking eight glasses of water a day. (And a good moisturizer.)

Cholesterol Control - Doctors believe that more water consumption can positively change cholesterol formation.

Joint Pain - Many joint pains stem from inadequate water consumption or slight dehydration. Water is the foremost lubricant for the contact surfaces of the joints, and friction caused by a lack of water can produce symptoms that are extremely similar to that  of arthritis  inflammation.

Regularity - Frequently, constipation can be a result of lack of fiber combined with dehydration. Water and fiber is the best way natural laxative.

Headaches -To avoid  a headache, drink water often.  Dehydration  has  been

found to play a key role in the precipitation of headaches and migraines.

Bottoms up!!!!

Before I came to Midwest Weight Control, I couldn’t lose weight. I’d tried everything from fad diets to different weight loss programs. I finally met with the staff at MWC and found out that I had certain medical issues that were standing in the way of my weight loss. The Medical Director addressed these issues with me, and I began to lose weight steadily. Since then, I’ve lost 61 pounds and I have adopted a new healthy and active lifestyle. I have never felt better in my life!

After nearly forty years of yo-yo dieting, and believing I could not diet one more time, I decided to take a drastic step. I went through the testing for gastric bypass surgery, and was denied. Bitterly disappointed, I expressed my feelings to the dietitian from the bypass program. She suggested another option: Midwest Weight Control.

What a great program it is! Not only have I lost weight, but I’ve finally made the shift in my thinking about a lifetime commitment to fitness. I look and feel better, and have lost my self-consciousness about my weight. It will no longer be a barrier or an excuse for not doing what I want to in life.
