Water: when to drink up!
So often when it comes to people talking about losing weight they always mention "Drink More Water!" I've thought about this a lot too. It always helps to have a few ideas that are more specific to aide in this goal of drinking more water. I recently was sent this article from my friend, Cathy, in an e-mail. I'm not sure exactly how factual this information might be but I thought that, perhaps, it couldn't hurt to have a drink at these specified times. I have also followed up with an article from WebMD about water & weight loss. I hope you'll find these articles encouraging to help you "Drink More Water!" After all, I realize drinking water is beneficial.
