Sarah Smith was suffering from migraines, and her doctor suggested a cure that wound up being the secret fountain of youth. In the picture on the left, Sarah looks like your average 42 year old woman. At the time, she felt sluggish and she was suffering from migraines. Her doctor suggested lowering her caffeine intake and seriously increasing her water intake. On the right, she appears to be in her low to mid thirties! Her secret? The fountain of youth is apparently right in our sink. Check out her unbelievable results – and don’t forget to SHARE this blog post.
Her secret? Drinking 3 liters of water per day.
That's right - the amount of water she put into her body drastically changed her appearance. In the photo on the left, her daily routine was relatively normal. "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," she revealed in an article for Daily Mail. There are 4.22 cups in a liter, which sounds like a lot...but it isn't. If you're like me, you're probably familiar with the old adage that we should be drinking 8 cups of water per day.
Well, "8 glasses of water a day" is 100% wrong - that's not enough water!
It was only after Sarah Smith took her doctor's advice and started drinking THREE liters of water a day - the equivalent of 12.6 cups of water per day - that she saw the stunning results in the above photograph.
Further proof? Check out her results broken down week by week.
WEEK 1 - Weight: 120 lbs, Waist: 28 inches.
"Headaches result from the pulling on the membranes that connect your brain to your skull," Sarah learned. As soon as she began supplementing her diet with extra fluids, the migraines began to go away.
"The blotches on my face are diminishing, and the shadows around my eyes are less pronounced," Sarah wrote in her Daily Mail article. But she wasn't the only one who noticed. "I feel pleased when my sister-in-law tells me my skin looks clearer than it did a week ago."
WEEK 3 - Weight: 118lbs (lost a total of 2 pounds) Waist Measurement: 27.5 inches (lost half an inch)
Believe it or not, Sarah dropped 2 pounds solely by drinking more water. She didn't go on a traditional diet or start exercising more. However, she did report feeling less hungry. "I'm eating less because drinking water with meals makes me feel fuller quicker. I used to snack, but I was reaching for food when I was actually thirsty. Studies show 37 per cent of people mistake thirst for hunger."
WEEK 4 - Weight: 117lbs (lost a total of 3 pounds!!) Waist Measurement: 27 inches (lost a FULL INCH from her waistline!!)
Sarah Smith was even shocked by the results. I look like a different woman. "The dark shadows around my eyes have all but disappeared and the blotches have gone...I'm feeling leaner and fitter, too, which is amazing, since the only thing I've changed is the amount of water I drink."
The lesson? Let’s all start drinkingmore water. Sub water for soda, juice, pop, or coffee. Not only will you lose weight and look a decade younger – you’ll also feel better. If you’d like to see dramatic results like Sarah, forgo other beverages, including caffeine and alcohol.
