My lifestyle was killing me and I knew I had to do something about it. I have learned that the best way to develop a healthy lifestyle is to discover the source of problem and then put a plan into action that will develop good health.

The goodness of water

How many times have you heard the saying drink eight glasses of water a day and you will look and feel great. Then you are thinking, you hope you are near a restroom all day. But the fact of the matter is that water, which really has no nutritional value, is really very good for you.

Drinks like soda and ice teas have a lot of caffeine but they are also very fattening. There are several ways that water can be beneficial to you.

Water helps you lose weight, you can't just drink water and expect to lose a ton of weight but drinking 8 glasses of water a day, will flush out your system and keep the bad stuff out of the blood stream. The fact that your body is 75% water should help. Water also keeps your kidneys hydrated and that will lessen the chance for kidney stones. Water also keeps your skin hydrated so you won't have dry itchy skin.

Water can after a while be boring to drink and when that happens most people stop drinking it, to keep your water fun try adding a fresh lemon to it or try those fat free, sugar free mixes like Crystal Light. Even though water is pretty much tasteless it can be boring and then you get bored. Continue to drink water on a daily basis and you will see a difference in your skin and on your scale.
