DON'T BE LEFT HIGH & DRY
If you have kids & love them don't destroy their bodies or cause other medical conditions by allowing them to consume harmful foods. But if you have bad-ass kids who treat you awful yet you can't lawfully do 'something' to them then the best thing is to let them drink/eat all those unhealthy foods so years later they can develop diabetes, obesity, liver malfunction, hypertension, dental problems, etc! So when they finally leave your home at 18 after giving you a few strokes, raising your blood pressure, trashing your house, and leaving you in debt -in stead of you saying "good riddance" you can say "touche!" (of course I'm joking)
How do you know if you need a drink? Wait let me rephrase that, I don't want to get the alcoholics excited. How do you know if you're dehydrated?
Thirst - OBVIOUSLY! Because you have that "and the chicken taste like wood" taste in your mouth.
Lost of Appetite - basically your body is saying "I don't need food dummy! I need something wet!"
Dry Skin - dehydration disables the body from providing moisture to your skin or hair. Lotion won't work now.
Skin Flushing - this is redness of the skin so if you're black it maybe hard to tell but not everybody has Indian in their family. "Your cheeks are red..." "Girl I got Indian in my family." If you're white it may not be from a bad tan and/or you're not in a black neighborhood. If you're Spanish and immigration is not around chances are you're dehydrated.
Dark Color Urine - Rule of thumb the lighter the urine the better. Golden showers are out, we doing white golden showers now. (kinda like 30s is the new 20s)
Dry Mouth - FYI: If you got the white spit aka cocaine boogers aka sugar balls aka spider eggs aka foamy droplets aka marsh mellow residue on the corner of your mouth - go get a drink cause nobody is enjoying a conversation with you right now!
Fatigue or Weakness - hydration is like gas to a car... without it you'll be tired or weak. Luckily water isn't as expensive as gas.
Chills - Hydration regulates your body temperature. So chill and have a drink (damn that joke was so dry!)
Head Rushes - that feeling you get at times when you get up too quickly. Dehydration amplifies that & it's not an orgasm this time.
Dry Lips - If your not on crack and it's not 20 below most likely you're dehydrated. Keep your lips kissable.
GREEN TEA (or any unsweetened tea)
I drink this stuff so much it's running out. Besides hydrating you it helps reduce risk of osteoporosis, cancer, heart disease, & cavities. I could go on... next to resvotrol it's the fountain or liquid of youth!
100% COCONUT WATER
3 to 4 times a week I'll have some coconut water. It helps carry nutrients and oxygen to your cells, promotes weight loss, cleanse your digestive tract etc.
A great way to eat veggies/fruits with out eating them is to juice 'em. I juice about every other day. I don't mix my veggies and fruits though. I'll have either an all veggie drink (preferably an all green) or an all fruits drink (blueberries, bananas, & ½ apple)
Other than being a great thirst quencher it's the best weight loss drink around! Simply add ice (more water basically). Water is so good for you because it makes you feel full, speeds your metabolism, and best of all - ZERO cals! Studies have shown drinking only 2 extra glasses of ice cold water can boost the metabolism by as much as 30%! Which adds up to 5 pounds of fat per year! That may not seem like a lot but them pounds will add on before you know it.
Also my friend Zainab Johnson told me about Kangen Water. I haven't done much research on it. If anyone wants more info click here or here and tell me about it [-:
***(fine print stuff) Always check with a doctor/physician before doing this or exercise. I tried this and it worked for ME, so I'm simply relaying.
