Yes water! Did you know that water is not just good for you but actually helps you burn fat?
Not instantly of course, but over time and with at least 12-16oz of water daily you start to see the difference.
Well how long you ask? In 6-8weeks you’ll start to see some weight loss, more energy and your skin starts to look better.
How you ask? Great question!
When you drink enough water your liver is free to focus on fat-burning. You see, when you are dehydrated or take in too little water your kidneys get too tired to keep ridding your body of toxins and your liver has to give up some fat burning activities to assist the kidney!

Sure, it doesnt taste so exciting... here are a few tips to trick your self into drinking more water!

- Have an "on-the-go" cup. I have had an orange "bubba" mug, a pink one and a baby blue one. My goal is to take little sips throughout the day till its done. It's become a habit now since I started 2 years ago.

- Jazz it up with "healthy" flavors- cucumber slices, a spurt of lemon, ice- to help it go down easy.

- Pay attention to your "thirst" signals. Sometimes, you're not hungry but you are actually thirsty. You MAY be thirsty if 

- Always go for water over soda, caffeinated or "fruit" juices. 

Love your skin, love your body ... please drink more water!
