Study Shows Drinking Water
Helps You Burn Calories
“I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man.”
Henry David Thoreau
As reported on WebMD.com:
“The study resulted in scientific evidence proving that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories. After drinking water, the subjects’ metabolic rates — or the rate at which calories are burned — increased by 30% for both men and women.”
And that’s just one of dozens of reasons why you want to not only stay hydrated, but also work towards replacing almost every beverage you consume…with cold, clean water!

Your body needs plenty of water throughout the day – even if your day is spent at a desk. You lose about 2 quarts of water a day through normal perspiration to stabilize body temperature (which occurs whether you’re sweating or not). During moderate intensity exercise, your body loses a quart of water an hour!
Obviously, it’s crucial that you stay hydrated, particularly during and after exercise. That’s why I’ve sent you…
P.S. Take a look at the enclosed article “What Happens To Your Body If You Drink A Coke Right Now?” Interesting – and a little shocking.
“What Happens To Your Body If You Drink A Coke Right Now?”
In the first 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system (100% of your recommended daily intake). You don’t immediately get sick from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.
20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat. (And there’s plenty of sugar at this particular moment.)
40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises. In response, your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.
45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.
60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium, and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.
90 minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to urinate.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte, and water.
120 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down, you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now excreted all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like hydrating your system or building strong bones and teeth. This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (Which is when many people will repeat this cycle – YIKES!)
FYI: The Coke itself is not the enemy, here. It’s the dynamic combo of massive sugar doses combined with caffeine and phosphoric acid, things which are found in almost all sodas.
