Take Up Drinking

Picture of the world with a lot of blue water

This, my friends, is earth…my favorite planet.

Fun fact: every Miss Universe winner to date has come from earth – hence the inter-galactic pickup line, “Hey there, you must be from earth.”

By now you’ve probably realized this is one of Kyle’s blogs, and today I will be writing about the blue stuff in the picture.

Water.

The Full Plate Diet encourages people to drink at least 6 glasses of water a day for several reasons. Your body needs lots of water to process fiber, and failure to drink water on a fiber-rich diet can lead to constipation. Water is also a calorie-free drink that can keep you from experiencing thirst, a feeling that is often mistaken with hunger, which leads to unnecessary snacking.      

So here is my challenge for you (and me). Can we drink 6 glasses of water every day for one week? Try writing yourself a little note and leaving it on your pillow. This can help you check your progress when you get in bed at night. If you’ve met our goal of 6 glasses, make a checkmark. After 7 days of success, give yourself a reward! Just make sure it’s something other than food. ☺   

One last fun fact: the human body is roughly 60% water, which makes the act of drinking water roughly 60% cannibalism.

Until next time, earthlings…
