The Real Deal About Drinking Water

Dr. Chatterjee in his book How to Make Disease Disappear urges readers to drink 8 glasses of water per day.

Doing this will give you more energy and clearer skin. It flushes out toxins and helps with weight maintenance. Drinking water also prevents headaches.

Loyal readers I’ve resisted doing this. Again it’s a matter of making healthy habits as convenient as possible.

You can buy a 27-ounce water bottle from KleanKanteen.

Bring it to your job or wherever you’re going in the morning. Fill it up and drink throughout the day. Add a squirt of lemon for taste if you want.

I’ve read in at least two places that you can divide your weight in half to arrive at the number of ounces of water to drink each day.

It might not seem fair that you have to drink all that water every day to reap health benefits. Yet not doing so can indeed lead to disease.

The benefits of drinking water are real not conjecture bandied about to sell plastic bottles of water. Ditch the plastic and buy a KleanKanteen bottle to carry wherever you go.

Drinking two glasses of water in the morning is a great way to start the day.

In the next blog entry I’m going to talk about one of the other Pillars: Relax.
