WOW — what a difference.
We're told over and over again about how good water is for us. You've probably heard the "8 cups of water a day" rule, but let's face it: that's tough when you have delicious soda and coffee and whatever else tempting you everywhere you go.
So, where can we find the motivation to drink wisely? This woman's before and after photos might just do the trick.
A 42-year-old woman named Sarah Smith wasn't drinking enough water, and decided to do something about it. After drinking three liters of water a day for 28 days, she shared her amazing results:
"Usually I start my day with a cup of tea, then I might have a glass of water with my lunch and one with dinner — that's about a liter of liquid in 24 hours. It feels like plenty, but apparently it's not nearly enough," writes Smith in her article for Daily Mail.
The mother of two was reportedly having headaches and a hard time with digestion. She turned to a neurologist and nutritionist, who advised her to drinking three liters of water a day.
These are her results week-by-week:
Week 1: She experienced some breakouts over her body while toxins were being eliminated. Her headaches disappeared and her stiff joints loosened up.
Week 2: Her skin tone started evening out and her wrinkles under her eyes lost some shadows. Blotches on her skin started disappearing, and her breath was fresher due to drinking less tea.
Week 3: Dark circles under the eyes and wrinkles disappeared, and skin became firmer. Her beauty therapist says her cells are better at regenerating. Eyes were less dry, and she was eating less because she's getting fuller from the water.
Week 4: By the end of the 28 days, Smith says, "I feel fitter, leaner and healthier, and my husband and friends tell me I look ten years younger. Who in their right mind wouldn't want to try something which gets such incredible results?"
If you're going to do one good thing for yourself, let it be to start drinking more water. Even if you don't drink three liters of water a day (because, really, who wants to use the bathroom every 10 minutes), start small with a few glasses.
