I Wanted to Fall Inlove with My Body Again! & I did!
Water as dessert? Try Metro-mint Water.
Some water is meant to be CHUGGED. Just drink it down. Yet other waters are meant to be savored and experienced one sip at a time. On any diet, drinking enough water is CRITICAL to YOUR DIET SUCCESS! I personally don't like the idea of drinking all of my water out of previously sealed "plastic" bottles. Feel free to read the report below. However, some water was meant to sip and let languish on the tonque. And for me, one of those waters is METRO-Mint. Worth the money and totally refreshing.
This Metro-mint water is created by reverse osmosis. I love all of the flavors. Experience the water in your mouth before swallowing. Let is roll over your tongue and feel the minty freshness. That's what I do. HOW MUCH WATER TO DRINK? I drink 3 full containers of water every day. That's 75 to 100 ounces per day. My skin looks and feels better and
my skin condition, roseacea went away. DRINK WATER PERIOD. Fat people are almost ALWAYS dehydrated people who don't drink enough water and your body makes you hungry in an attempt to get the water it needs. Want to shed pounds? DRINK YOUR BLASTED WATER. No Excuses. Yes, you are going to pee more...but it will help release fat cells. DRINK YOUR WATER. OK?
PH BALANCED WATER? I am researching this topic now. I am currently trying water that is PH balanced at an 8.
NOW the TAP WATER DEBATE:
Did you know that some bottled water had arsenic in it? Did you know that if you leave tap water out for 24 hours uncovered the chlorine will be gone and it's safer to drink?
Bottled versus Tap
- Because bottled water companies proclaim that their products are unmatched in purity, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) funded a study comparing bottled water to tap water. Tap water is usually fluoridated, unlike bottled water, and dentists have seen an increase in cavities as a result of more and more people starting to drink bottled water instead of tap water. The results of the NRDC study of 103 different brands of bottled water showed that about 66 percent of the water tested was clean, while about 33 percent showed contamination from synthetic organic chemicals, bacteria and arsenic. The findings of the NRDC study indicate that bottled water is not tested as frequently for contaminants as tap water is. In fact, while hundreds of tests are ordered per month for big city tap water by the EPA, bottled water is only tested once per week by the FDA. Tap water is required to be disinfected, filtered and tested for bacteria viruses and synthetic organic chemicals, while bottled water is not required to test for viruses and is not required to be sterilized.
Bottled "Tap" Water?
- Government studies show that about a quarter of bottled water is actually bottled tap water. In spite of the FDA allowing bottled water companies to call water pumped from the ground that "may" be treated with chemicals "spring water," drinking bottled water has become trendy and sales have increased. One bottled water brand claimed that their water was "glacier water" on the label. The FDA determined that the source for the water was actually a public water supply.
FDA Regulations Concerning Bottled Water
- In spite of the seemingly lax purity testing regulations conducted by the FDA on bottled water, Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) have been set on the product. CGMP stipulates that bottled water manufacturers must process, bottle, transport and hold water under sanitary conditions. Water must be protected from bacteria and other contaminants and tested when a "source" and when a "final product." Finally, quality control processes must be implemented by the manufacturer to ensure that the water is bacteria and chemical free.
