Water (no really)

So ya know, water really is a big deal. In many health programs, drinking water is advocated. No  surprise there. I mean, we are 60-70% water so drinking enough keeps us hydrated and in the right biochemical and PH range. But, apparently, drinking 500 ml (2 C)  will boost your metabolism for about 30 min by about 30%. here’s the article. When I did the math, this means if you drink about  6′ish C of water a day, you’ll burn approx 50 cal, which by the end of the year is equivalent to the caloric value of of 5 # of fat. That you didn’t store. Hello and goodbye midlife midsection creep.

Hmmmmm. I’ll try and do it. What’s the worst that can happen? (OK, peeing a lot.) I’ll have to put alarms on my iPhone to remind me to drink!
