How much water do you drink on a daily basis? Do you understand the health and beauty implications and insufficient hydration? If you are having troubles increasing the amount of water that you consume, you will probably benefit from the following story.
It focuses on one woman’s decision to start drinking three liters (0.8 gallons) of water per day and the health implications of this decision.
Who is Sarah Smith?
Sarah Smith is 42 and she is a UK mother of two children. Just like many other people, Sarah leads a hectic life that prevents her from getting the recommended amounts of water per day.
Her inability to consume sufficient quantities of water produced a range of unpleasant and unhealthy side effects. Sarah suffered from poor digestion and bloating. She also experienced regular headache episodes.
Sarah’s physician told her that she needed to up the water intake, to deal with both of the problems. She decided to listen to the advice, and she also wanted to document the changes that came with consuming higher quantities of water. Sarah began drinking three liters of water per day and taking a picture of herself each week. The results were amazing.
Changes during Week One
Sarah started bringing the amount of water up, which immediately had an effect on her bowel movements and the functioning of her kidneys. She had to urinate more frequently and as more and more water entered her body, the color of the urine changed from dark to very light yellow.
By the end of the week, her flexibility improved, as well. Water is an essential “lubricant” for the joints, and it can help people dealing with stiffness and pain overcome these problems.
Changes during Week Two
By the second week of consuming three liters of water per day, Sarah had lost a pound of her weight. Her complexion and the condition of her skin also began changing for the better. Blemishes, imperfections, and wrinkles became less prominent. The shadows underneath her eyes became less pronounced, as well.
During the first week, Sarah consumed tea and other beverages because of her dislike for plain water. In the second week of the experiment, her desire for sweeter beverages diminished. She started drinking larger quantities of water rather than substituting it for something more “exciting.”
The increased water intake resulted in the lack of headaches for over a week. Sarah’s digestion also improved and her bloating disappeared.
Changes during Week Three
By the third week of increasing her water intake, Sarah lost half an inch from her waist. She reported that drinking more made her eat less – the water made her feel full and helped her control cravings.
Sarah also said that the condition of her skin improved even further. Properly hydrated, her face looked plumper and much more youthful than ever before.
Final Week of the Experiment
By the final week of her experiment, Sarah lost an additional pound of weight and another half an inch from her waistline.
She also experienced a serious transformation regarding skin condition and appearance. Most of the imperfections disappeared from her face, and the before and after pictures of Sarah show how her complexion has improved.
A simple change involving larger quantities of water delivered amazing health and beauty benefits. There is no need to introduce diet changes or harsh workout regiments – proper hydration can help you go a long way.
