I ripped this article out of a magazine the other day bc I liked the info. Its written by some Ph.d., CNS, board certified nutritionist....and of course it talks about water. It says:
1. Much of what we perceive as hunger-driving us to overeat-is actually thirst.
2. Within 10 minutes of drinking about a pint of water, metabolic rates in both men and women begin to increase by as much as 24-30 percent.
3. You should divide your weight by 2 to get the number of ounces of water you should be drinking a day.
I have heard number 3 for years. That just sounds like an awful lot of water to me! I drink somewhere around 80-90 ounces a day...and if I followed the rule I should be drinking 130! Woo wee.
Just wanted to share :)
