Thoughts on Water: Weight Management
- Tuesday, 15 April 2008
Water is essential for managing weight.
Hear me out on this one. To maintain healthy bowels, making 1–3 trips to the bathroom a day is imperative.
Also, the transit time of your bowels is important to consider. The amount of time from When food enters your mouth to when it leaves should take no longer than 24 hours. The average transit time is 2–4 days!
If constipation is the issue, the bowels could be holding 5, 6, 7 pounds of waste. That being said, to fix this problem, slowly incorporating more fiber into the diet is essential. Fiber must be combined with WATER in order to be effective. Weight management and even weight loss can occur through eliminating constipation.
