Here’s a specific weight loss action I’ve been taking for about six years. I feel great about it, so it has a wonderfully positive effect upon my weight management. I drink a gallon of water every day.
I Didn’t Need to “Keep My Ass Alive”, But I Did Want It To Stay Small
It started when a friend of mine showed me a book called “98 Degrees: Keeping Your Ass Alive”. That book is about survival in extreme situations, but had something in it you might find interesting.
The author claimed that the only way to actually hydrate your body is to drink so much water, at one time, that you force your stomach to bypass digesting it and release it into your intestinal tract (where, he wrote, it is absorbed directly into your body). He said that, to do this, you drink water until you feel like throwing up (you’ll feel that way briefly, he said, until your stomach releases the water).
I can’t vouch for the medical/scientific accuracy of the author’s statements, but I can tell you that I was curious enough to try it.
You Seriously Chugged Water Like That? Were You Crazy or Just Curious?
The very first time I did it (about six years ago) I experienced everything he described. I could even clearly feel it when my stomach released the water into my intestines!
What I’ve found from following this practice is that my intestines get “flushed” on a daily basis. I can also report that, since I’ve been doing this every day for the last six years, I have only been ill a few times (literally), my hair and nails grow faster, my urine is usually very clear (a sign of proper hydration), and I do not experience pangs of thirst during the day. I’m convinced enough about the practice that it is a daily part of my weight loss “actions” (that I feel very good about – an important point!).

Yes, believe it or not, for the past six years, each day, I drink a gallon of water. Every day, unless I’m stopped by unavoidable circumstances (I’ve even figured out ways to do it when making long car trips and don’t want to stop to pee every 40 minutes). And I make a point to drink the gallon quickly, chugging at least a large portion of it to experience the “too full” phenomenon I described earlier.
I have greatly enjoyed the results – obviously enough to make the practice part of my everyday routine. It’s a fairly non-invasive, easy-to-do part of my routine, too. Each day I fill up a gallon jug and chug it.
Perhaps you might give this a try and see if you like the results too. I just finished today’s gallon and I feel great!
