Give thanks to your FAT
Did you know that your fat cells are actually PROTECTING YOU?
It’s true! Toxins are stored in your fat cells, keeping all of that harmful MESS away from your vital organs!
Do you want the #1 secret to health and weight loss?
When there are lots of acids in the digestive system, the body has to deal with them somehow. Yes, some can process through liver and kidneys, but they can only handle so much. Any overflow acids get stripped to a tiny 1pH acidic bomb. The body then wraps this acid bomb into FAT and stores it to deal with at a later time.
The problem is, that later time rarely comes due to the constant onslaught of acidic foods we eat.
So, what foods are acidic? Unfortunately over 80% of the foods we eat are acidic! All processed foods are considered acidic. Alkaline foods include fruits and vegetables – RAW fruits and vegetables, by the way, because most COOKED veggies are devoid of their vital nutrients and become acidic. Also, the greener, they are, the more alkaline they are. If your diet doesn’t consist of 80% raw fruits and vegetables, chances are, your body is acidic and has gone into fat storage mode.
Forget cholesterol counts. Forget calories and fat grams. Forget blood pressure, blood sugar, and hormone levels or any of the other markers of health you’re used to at the doctor’s office.
Have they worked?
The single measurement most important to your health (and weight loss) is the pH of your blood and tissues – how acidic and alkaline it is. ~ Dr. Robert Young Microbiologist/Nutritionist and author of “The pH Miracle.”
Of the three causes of acidosis – what we eat, what we drink and the body’s natural chemical reactions – because your body is 70% water, what we drink is actually the most significant.
Most drinks are very low on the pH scale. Sodas, sports drinks and Vitamin Water are between 2 and 4pH. Coffee is between 4 and 6pH. Even most bottled waters are below 5 on the pH scale!
(Who knew?) Not only does this mean that we are taking into our bodies massive amounts of sugar and acids in the drinks we consume, but most of the drinks are dehydrating. Therefore, the alkalinity of water MATTERS.
Yes! It actually robs the body of vital hydration to process all these toxins!
Most of us know, the human body is between 70% and 80% water… (When it’s healthy) thus staying hydrated is incredibly important.
Let’s look at dehydration from just the muscles:
If we are fully-hydrated at 70% and we drop to around 68%… what is going to happen?
- A drop of 2% is about a 1 hour workout. That does not necessarily mean bodybuilding in the gym, taking a 1 hour walk around the neighborhood can cause you to lose 2% hydration.
- A 2% loss of hydration is enough to put the cells into fat storage mode
- A 3% loss of hydration is enough to lose about 10% of muscle strength and endurance
- A 4% loss of hydration is enough for a 30% loss of muscle strength and endurance
That is extremely significant amount of muscle loss for just a little bit of dehydration
GOT BRAIN FOG?
A 5% hydration loss will bring about brain fog, headaches and drowsiness.
Your blood is 90% – 97% water. As the blood dehydrates, it thickens. When that happens, the blood pressure grows, acidity levels increase, and now the heart needs to pump harder and the oxygen required by the cells is impeded and thusly the body receives a lack of energy.
In other words….We get tired.
What do people crave most?
Therefore, dehydration is the #1 enemy of health and high performance.
And so begins the vicious cycle. You are low in energy, so you don’t want to exercise. Now you have less motivation to eat right, which lowers your energy further.
Dehydration = Acidosis = fat storage
Does the alkalinity of water matter?
You bet it does!
Recently (if you call the last 40 years recent) we have made the connection between proper hydration with proper hydrants… We have been duped. The old one size fits all 8 glasses a day only works if you are actually ABSORBING all that water. Truly, it’s not entirely about the amount of water that we are drinking but the quality and structure of the water that we are drinking and that our bodies can utilize. And then you have the alkalinity of water, which is only recently come to the surface.
99% of all bottled water is acidic.
Why? When we know that the alkalinity of water matters so much? Reverse Osmosis water, which is very acidic dehydrates the body further, but is what most bottled waters are. We become more acidic when we become dehydrated… which is a double whammy.
And when the body cannot flush out the toxins from its millions of chemical reactions each second, then they build up to acidosis…. Making you store fat.
This is why there is a growing demand for high quality H2o. The water that the body can make the most use of would be alkaline, anti-oxidant and restructured so the body can utilize it. The word restructured, means the ionization process has fractionated the molecule clusters. This enables your body to absorb it 6 times faster than any other water in the world, helping your body flush out toxins, stay hydrated, healthy, and at the natural weight your body was meant to be.
While the alkalinity of water plays a huge role in assisting you with weight loss, it is the restructuring power over the water that makes it so effective. An incredible amount of energy is necessary to restructure the water… and not all ionizers are created equally… but that’s another topic! (please read “Alkaline water reviews”) Only when the water is fully restructured – can it be utilized and then, once it is changing out the body’s system and flushing the toxins… then the alkalinity of water and anti-oxidant properties come into play.
Restructured Water = better hydration = alkaline body = thin & healthy.
So while your lovely fat cells are actually doing you a favor, you CAN help all those toxins safely exit your system. With a little help from the RIGHT water.
When I began drinking this water 5 + years ago, I was raw vegan and had stagnated at a certain weight. I wasn’t exactly happy with it, but I didn’t follow the diet for weight reasons, I had begun and followed the diet because I had had my 2nd diagnosis with cervical and uterine cancer. Let me be clear: I was cancer free when I began the water. But knowing the importance of the alkalinity of my body, I tried it. After my 2nd bout, I realized that I had to MAINTAIN an alkaline diet. No easy task in today’s world! Alkalinity of water seemed to make sense…so I tried it….and…. Something amazing happened! I lost 15 pounds in 6 weeks changing only my water! I had more energy so naturally my workouts increased. Because restructured water helps dispel toxins faster, my recovery was faster, allowing me to have less recovery time in between workouts. Was it the alkalinity of water or the exercise? I did a test and went off the water. I found I wasn’t able to do the exercise without the water. I had my answer.
Which lead me to a fascinating study on – you guessed it, WATER! It has been, far and away, the best thing I ever did!
Let’s not forget that, of course, an alkaline diet exponentiates results, but if I had to choose one or the other? Pass the restructured water please! I no longer live in fear of cancer AND I have kept the weight off despite the rollercoaster of life and no longer being raw – or even vegan for that matter.
Freedom is so lovely!
