under normal circumstances and when the temperature in our
body rises, as during exercise, we lose higher amounts of
water through sweat. It only makes sense that we need to
continually replenish this supply for water is necessary for
nearly every function in our body. Water regulates our
temperature, supports and protects our organs, helps with
digestion, transports nutrients to our muscles and helps move
along waste by products.

key to fat burning. Here's why: one of you liver's

drinking adequate amounts of water before, during and after a
workout. As a rule of thumb, drink 8-12 ounces of water at

exercise and 8 oz when finished. If you are hungry about an
hour after eating, try drinking a glass or two of water- you
