Dr. Lori Shemek is BACK AGAIN to discuss her top 5 reasons why drinking water may help you lose weight!
1. Water Helps Metabolize Fat

It used to be cool to eschew sleep. ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ and ‘sleep is for losers’ were phrases that people actually once said to each other; probably while trying to emulate the rumored 4-hours-per-night sleep habits of Martha Stewart and that lazy so-and-so Tom Ford, who snoozes in his self-designed sheets for an indulgent three hours every night.
By and large, the sea of change has happened (probably while we were sleeping), and many of us now value sleep a lot more.

In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has preferred a relatively nonchalant approach to the carcinogenic chemical that’s present in food containers and drink bottles across the country, declining to upgrade the risk in line with scientists’ concerns.

“The stance the FDA’s had for a number of years is probably narrow-sighted.” – Christopher Kassotis, University of Missouri
