  • How to Lose 100+ Pounds and Keep it Off For Life

    I really hate when people repeat the "8 glasses of water" mantra. Even as a child I asked the question, "how much is a glass?" I know what a cup is (= 8oz.) but a glass? Glasses come in varying sizes. So if you mean 8 cups of water or 64 oz. then why not say that? The reason, there is no scientific proof that 64 oz. or "8 glasses of water" is a magic number for health. The original study included watr from food. Your body size, type and activity all make a difference, too. Just apply a little logic. Does a 100 lbs. person need the exact same amount of water as a 300 lbs. person? Particularly of the 300 lb'der is an NFL lineman and the 100 lbs person in a 17 year old student with no extra curriculars? So from a scientific point of view, first use accurate measurement, then go by what been actually tested (a subject pool of one is not at generalizable study). http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/water/art-20044256
