Fifteen benefits of drinking water

By James McIntosh

Reblogged from : medicalnewstoday.com

Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but many people do not consume enough fluids each day.

Around 60 percent of the body is made up of water, and around 71 percent of the planet’s surface is covered by water.

Perhaps it is the ubiquitous nature of water that means drinking enough each day is not at the top of many people’s lists of priorities.Fast facts on drinking water

  • Adult humans are 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water.
  • There is no universally agreed quantity of water that must be consumed daily.
  • Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions.
  • When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.
  • Drinking water instead of soda can help with weight loss.

Fifteen benefits of drinking water

Benefits of drinking water

Possible benefits of drinking water range from keeping the kidneys healthy to losing weight.

To function properly, all the cells and organs of the body need water.

Here are some reasons our body needs water:

1. It lubricates the joints

Cartilage, found in joints and the disks of the spine, contains around 80 percent water. Long-term dehydration can reduce the joints’ shock-absorbing ability, leading to joint pain.

2. It forms saliva and mucus

Saliva helps us digest our food and keeps the mouth, nose, and eyes moist. This prevents friction and damage. Drinking water also keeps the mouth clean. Consumed instead of sweetened beverages, it can also reduce tooth decay.

3. It delivers oxygen throughout the body

Blood is more than 90 percent water, and blood carries oxygen to different parts of the body.

4. It boosts skin health and beauty

With dehydration, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and premature wrinkling.

5. It cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues

The One Meal A Day Diet: What 14 Studies Say About Eating Once A Day

Reposted from Muscle EVO

The benefits of eating one time a day.

You’ve read a few posts and articles from people on the One Meal a Day diet (OMAD) who say they’ve lost weight by eating once a day.

It all sounds very simple and easy, and you’re thinking about giving it a try.

Does eating once a day get results? Can you really pig out every night and still lose weight? Or is the OMAD diet just going to mess up your metabolism and wreak havoc with your hormones?

What Is the OMAD diet?

The idea behind the OMAD diet is very simple. You eat one big meal whenever you want, although most people prefer to do so at night. That meal is where you get most of your calories for the day.

Because all your food for the day is squeezed into one meal, you don’t have to exercise much restraint. On the OMAD diet you get to eat, within reason, whatever you like. As a result, you finish that meal feeling full and satisfied.

During the rest of the day, your calorie intake is minimal. You’re allowed some light snacks, maybe a protein shake after you’ve been to the gym. But that’s about it.

OMAD Origins: The Warrior Diet

The first time I came across the idea of eating once a day was in the late 1990’s, in a book called The Warrior Diet.

Written by former Penthouse health and fitness editor Ori Hofmekler, The Warrior Diet describes the many great and wonderful things that will happen when you switch to eating once a day.

Nutrition & Our Hybrid Body
In the 1950’s, my friend Bill was a very gifted Engineer who made an extraordinary car. It looked very similar to a Chevrolet Corvette, but the insides of the car is what made it so unique. It wasn’t the first Hybrid car, but it was much more practical and appealing than its predecessors. There was one snag: it never took off because he couldn’t get people to use it properly. The car’s main fuel source was electricity, and gasoline was to be put in whenever available. It was fine for the car to use gasoline every other day or so, but the problem was that people ran it on gasoline nearly 90% of the time. This resulted in…
