In case you're wondering if all this water REALLY does any good....

I am a convert to the "drink a boatload of water" philosophy. I've seen how it has helped me, particularly if I drink 4 to 6 glasses before meals and at least 2 to 4 more in the hour or so after. I notice I'm hungrier the days I drink less.

But, just in case you want some info in the more scientific-ey vein, I came across this link in an article today: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17519319

Water-induced thermogenesis, huh? That's one more plus for the agua....

I've never, ever, ever in my life until this past month plus been a consistent water drinker. I am a new convert to the habit. If I didn't have to run to the bathroom every 30 mins, I'd say it was a jolly wonderful thing. I'll just have to say it's a helpful tool....and ask my nethers to forgive the constant wipe-abuse.

Later...

I agree with you about water and hunger. I notice a difference when I don't drink the usual amount, both in mouth dryness and hunger.

by the way you can buy those soft little towels to ease the abuse.... Just saying... :)

I am really trying to work on my water intake. I usually do really good with my water intake for three or four days in a row then I get tired of it and slack off. So I'm really making the effort going forward to get my water intake up. Thanks for the reminder!
