Rosey...I just checked out that site, she said we can't copy/post any of the recipes anywhere. What a difference in the before and after pictures of that gal.
Speaking of before and after, looking good KarenMo.
Oh I agree with everyone about going to a new doctor. I sent the letter off to my regular GP today, I'm sure he'll prescribe a x-ray of some kind.
Hi everyone else, I'm in the middle of doing a full scan on my computer. Right now they have detected 81, all cookies. Too bad their computer cookies and not the real ones. I have to go back and re-read all the post, I just scanned them earlier.

Why Drinking Water Is Important for Weight Loss

Diet and Weight Loss Tutorial

There are many reasons why it is important to drink water, especially if you are dieting:
  • Initial weightloss is largely due to loss of water, and you need to drink an adequate amount of water in order to avoid dehydration.
  • The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently; dehydration slows down the fat-burning process.
  • Burning calories creates toxins (think of the exhaust coming out of your car), and water plays a vital role in flushing them out of your body.
  • Dehydration causes a reduction in blood volume; a reduction in blood volume causes a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles; and a reduction in the supply of oxygen to your muscles can make you feel tired.
  • Water helps maintain muscle tone by assisting muscles in their ability to contract, and it lubricates your joints. Proper hydration can help reduce muscle and joint soreness when exercising.
  • A healthy (weight loss) diet includes a good amount of fiber. But while fiber is normally helpful to your digestive system, without adequate fluids it can cause constipation instead of helping to eliminate it.
  • Drinking water with a meal may make you feel full sooner and therefore satisfied eating less. Note, however, that drinking water alone may not have this effect. In order to feel satiated (not hungry), our bodies need bulk, calories and nutrients.
