Hydration

0 comments

 

Water is your most important nutrient.

 

Weight loss is a natural by-product of a hydrated body. Some studies have shown that by drinking water before meals, significantly more weight is lost than those who do not drink water.

 

Your metabolism is also unregulated by a small percent when optimally hydrated too. This means just by keeping your body in a state of good hydration, you burn off excess energy more efficiently. This helps to keep you slimmer, less bloated, and looking more youthful.

 

Hydration is extra important during your Metabolic Optimisation format, your 24 hour fast days. In this time you will be detoxing, moving a lot of much needed processes through the body for cleaning and repair.

 

Hydration guidelines:

 

  1. Overall intake should be 2.5-3L per day.

  2. A good rule to follow is 3 Webstar bottles before 3pm to ensure you are getting your minimum.

  3. Hydration is also your electrolyte balance as well. This means you need to keep your salts balanced with your water intake. About one pinch of Himalayan rock salt per litre of water is a good ratio to aim for.

  4. If you are exercising or it’s a really hot day you will naturally need to account for that by drinking more water.

  5. As you age you feel less thirsty overall, but hydration is still important so you must account for that even if you don’t feel thirsty.

  6. Filtered and reverse osmosis water is ideal to avoid any toxins.

  • i cycle to work. I go hard out over a hilly 15km route at around 29-30km/h. I’m doing the 16/8 fasting and so would normally start filling my face at midday. Most protein/recovery shakes advise to take within 45 mins of finishing. So, my question is, should I have the shake when I get to work at 6am or wait till midday?
  • This is my favorite probiotic, a Slavic/Baltic beverage made from fermented rye bread. You got to be a little brave to drink this at the start. Has a taste that feels like it will put hairs on your chest thus it takes a little getting use to but well worth the health benefits. Mainly due to kombucha becoming mainstream and a little "Hollywood" its my natural inclination to go for an alternative and root for the underdog. Give it a try and see what you think. Kvas with blueberry is my favorite.
  • I love kombucha, ACV, Greek yoghurt, and Kvass for my probiotics. With occasionally some Sauerkraut and Sour Dough bread. I try to avoid anything that's not overly natural but these Pro and Prebiotic protein bars are pretty good too and I enjoy them as a "sweet treat" substitute along with protein supplementation.
