Drink Up!

Studies have shown that when athletes become dehydrated during training or a competition, their muscles begin to use more carbohydrates and less fat for fuel.  Some experts now believe the same is true for the non-athletes among us.  So, if you’re trying to lose weight, maximize your fat-burning capacity by following some basic guidelines:

* Drink at least 8 glasses of water or other non-caffeinated beverages daily. 
* Drink an additional 4 cups if you are exercising that day or if the weather is hot.
* Don’t count caffeinated beverages into your daily count of 8 glasses of water; they actually dehydrate you.
* To keep your metabolism high and your body at peak performance, drink 64 ounces (8 glasses) of water per day.
* Many of us interpret thirst for hunger.  Keep hydrated for appetite control.

Water is the perfect beverage – no calories, fat-free, no carbohydrates, the fluid that your body needs to maximize your weight loss.  Give your body and weight loss the drink of health – water!
