Lesson 11 – Quiero Agua

— SPACER —

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]Have you experienced random headaches, cramps, dizziness and just an overall crappy mood?

Of COURSE you have!!!

According to the numbers, the chances are that you are operating at a semi-dehydrated state. Even with these symptoms it is still hard for us to recognize when we just need a glass of water! Often times when we feel hungry, our bodies are actually communicating a lack of water in our system.

A great way to fit some water into your schedule is to drink a glass of water whenever you feel hungry. Wait 10 minutes and if you still feel hungry then go ahead and eat something. Odds are you will not eat as much as you would have before that glass of water. By drinking more water you are inadvertently decreasing the amount of calories you consume at each meal. It is recommended to drink your water with your meals, anyway.

“The Tao of Po”

“When I ran the Marine Corps Marathon – my first marathon – I trained with a good buddy who was a better runner than me and more physically fit. We started the race together but he quickly outpaced me and vanished from my sight by mile 5. As I struggled through the pack on a very hot, cloudless 75 degree October day (75 degrees is scorching when running a marathon), I lumbered toward the finish line in 4:00 + hours.

[text_block style=”style_1.png” align=”left”]Wrapped in Mylar, proudly sporting a finisher’s medal, and inhaling whatever food I could find, I wandered around our rendezvous point to meet my friend who was certainly already there. Time passed slowly, and with my friend nowhere to be found after and hour and a half, I walked two painful miles to my car and waited another 2 hours then went home and waited longer still until he phoned me from his hospital bed in Fairfax Virginia where he was recuperating from dehydration and kidney failure. He remained in the hospital for three days! He was fed intravenously, and it took him nearly 48 hours to get enough juice just to go to the bathroom.

Later he told me that he was so determined to finish in less than 4 hours that he bypassed all water stations and pushed himself as hard as he could. And he very nearly achieved his goal when 15 yards from the finish line he collapsed. God Bless the United States Marines. They honorably carried him across the finish line so he could claim victory, and they kept right on hauling him until he lay motionless in an ambulance bound for the hospital.

Many of us have suffered the smaller, inconvenient effects of dehydration: muscle spasms and cramps, lethargic runs, constipation, and fatigue. But please remember how neglecting something as simple as drinking water can lead to ruin.”

Water has a great influence on you outer appearance as well.

Increasing the amount of water you drink each day will result in clearer skin and improve the ease with which you build sexy lean muscle. Water helps with the digestive processes it transports all of the vitamins and nutrients that will help you look and feel you best each day.

Some say that you should enjoy everything in moderation (not me, I think thats a horrible saying), but when it comes to water the more the better (up to let’s say 10L). However it is NOT a smart idea to try and consume a large quantity of water in a small spans of time (especially for a radio game show). If you drink a lot of water over the course of the day, you are in the clear.

We want you actively tracking your new habit, by answering one question: “Have you consumed AT LEAST 2L of refreshing H2O today?”

Your tracking will be simple yes or no tracking.  Daily, either you did or you didn’t. That’s it![/text_block]
