Water and weight loss go hand-in-hand. Let me give you an illustration. When you emptyrepparttar pot of oatmeal intorepparttar 143487 sink it just sits there. If you didnít do anything with it and allowed it to sit, eventually it would ferment and rot, and become infested with flies or maggots. Imagine if you eat a meal and donít take in any liquids, your food would just sit there and ferment and rot causing constipation and other digestive problems.

Once youíve thrownrepparttar 143488 oatmeal intorepparttar 143489 sink, if you wash it downrepparttar 143490 drain with water, it will easily go downrepparttar 143491 pipes and your sink will be clean and fresh and healthy. The body isrepparttar 143492 same way. Youíve got to wash that meal downrepparttar 143493 pipes (your esophagus) with water to keep your system clean and fresh and healthy.

Onrepparttar 143494 other hand, if you washrepparttar 143495 oatmeal downrepparttar 143496 drain with soda pop,repparttar 143497 oatmeal will go down butrepparttar 143498 sink will be sticky and stained and unhealthy. Likewise,repparttar 143499 soda pop will cause your system to be unhealthy and can lead to various problems.
