You've Heard It Before -- Now, Hear It Again . . .


Yep. Water.

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Don't like water? Spice it up with a little no-cal Kool Aid or one of the many variations on the theme and keep a gallon or two in the refrigerator. If it is available and cold you're more likely to drink it. I know I am.

Train hard; diet harder!
