Pure Water as Food: How Drinking Half Your Body Weight in Ounces a Day Helps to Keep Fat Away

Incredible as it may seem, water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in releasing weight and keeping it off. Although most of us take water for granted, water may be the only true "magic potion" for permanent weight reduction. Water suppresses the appetite naturally, and helps the body to metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.

Here's why: the kidneys can't function properly without enough water. When the kidneys don't work to capacity, some of their load is dumped onto the liver.

One of the liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat and turn it into usable energy for the body (use #4 and #7 Power Plants.) But if the liver has to do some of the kidney's work, it can't operate at full throttle. As a result, it metabolizes less fat. As a result, the fat remains stored in the body and weight reduction stops.

Drinking enough water is the best treatment for excess fluid retention. When the body doesn't get enough water, it perceives this as a threat to survival and begins to hold on to every drop. In these circumstances, water is stored in extra-cellular spaces (outside the cells). This shows up as swollen feet, legs, and hands.

Diuretics (substances which increase urination) offer a temporary solution at best. They force stored water out of the body, along with some essential nutrients. Again, the body perceives this as a threat and will replace the lost water at its first opportunity. Thus, the condition quickly returns.

The best way to overcome the problem of water retention is to give your body what it needs: plenty of water. Only then will stored water be released.

If you have a chronic problem with water retention, excess salt may be to blame. Your body will tolerate sodium only in certain concentrations. The more salt you ingest, the more water your system retains to dilute it. But getting rid of unneeded salt is easy—just drink more water. As water is forced through the kidneys, it takes away excess sodium with it.

Water acts as a solvent in the body. The purer the water (i.e., the more free it is from inorganic minerals, dissolved heavy metals, water softeners, and pollutants), the more body toxins can be let into it, and the more organic nutrients it can carry to the body cells. Other fluids like coffee, tea, fruit juices, milk, and other liquids do not count.

Every living cell requires water, just as all cells require nutrients and oxygen. Water regulates all body functions and is essential for the removal of wastes, especially via the lymphatic system (i.e., at the cellular level). The overweight person needs more water than the thin person. Larger people have larger metabolic loads. Since we know that water is the key to fat metabolism, it seems logical that the overweight person would need more water.

Water helps rid the body of waste. During weight reduction, the body has a lot more waste to get rid of. All of that metabolized fat must be shed. Again, adequate water helps flush out the waste.

Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. Water also helps to reduce sagging skin that may follows weight reduction—shrinking cells are buoyed by water, which pumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.

There are no enzymes in rocks. Our trace mineral consumption comes from living foods that we eat—fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains (and also from using our Liquid Ionic Trace Minerals supplement). These foods release organic materials, i.e., they are in a form that can be absorbed and used by the body. Inorganic materials, like water with a high iron content, for example, are not a cure for anemia (low iron). Also, osteoporosis (low calcium in the bones) is not cured by drinking water with a high inorganic calcium content. Inorganic minerals are difficult for the body to eliminate, and they eventually accumulate in the joints, which can cause pain and spurs.

Water can help relieve constipation. When the body gets too little water, it siphons what it needs from internal sources. The result? Constipation. When a person drinks enough water, normal bowel function usually returns.

So far, we've discovered some remarkable truths about water and weight reduction:

How much water is enough? On average, a person should consume 1/2 ounce of pure water for each pound of body weight per day. For example, a 160-pound person should drink 80 ounces of water a day.

To utilize water most efficiently during weight loss, follow this schedule:

Morning: 1/3 of your daily total consumed over a 30-minute period.

Noon: 1/3 of your daily total consumed over a 30-minute period.

Evening: 1/3 of your daily total consumed between 5:00 and 6:00 PM.

Drink water up to a half hour before and not sooner than one hour after a meal (while food is still digesting). It is best not to drink with meals. Water will dilute the enzymes required for correct digestion. Thirst after eating is a sign that you've consumed one or more poisons!


What Happens When You Reach the "Breakthrough Point"?

When the body gets the water it needs to function optimally, its fluids are perfectly balanced. When this happens, you have reached the "breakthrough point."

When this is achieved:

If you stop drinking enough water, your body fluids will be thrown out of balance again, and you may experience fluid retention, unexplained weight gain, and a loss of thirst. To remedy the situation, you'll have to go back and force another "breakthrough."


Water Intake

Quantity and quality are both very important!

Quality: We recommend using reverse osmosis water as your first choice, and distilled water as a second choice (if you use distilled water, be sure to add the Liquid Ionic Trace Minerals at a concentration of 20 to 30 drops per gallon).

Quantity: Take your body weight (in pounds) and divide it in half—that number represents your optimum daily intake of pure water in ounces. Now, divide that number in half again, then move the decimal point 1 place to the left (i.e., divide by 10), and that will give you the specific amount to consume in 30-minute intervals during the course of the day, as you are able.

Example: A person weighing 160 pounds would consume 80 ounces of pure water DAILY, taken at the rate of 4.0 ounces per half hour.

For incredible results, try to follow these guidelines as closely as possible, especially if combines with the Lymphasizing. This way of taking water is ASTOUNDING! Please give it an honest effort. You won't be disappointed!
