Average human body consists of 60% of water by weight, which indicates that you should give more importance to water than food in your daily intake. But people do the reverse. They are obedient to their tongue and eat as per the taste- when ever and what ever they like.
Tongue is a very small part of your body. But, you make the tongue happy and neglect the rest of your body. That is unfair and can lead you to severe health problems.
What do you get if you eat what your tongue likes?— taste!
What do you get if you drink water?— urine! More water—more urine.
So you think- who will pass urine so many times?
It disturbs your work. You are busy and don’t like to be disturbed. So don’t drink water- simple.
But, it is the starting point to your health problems.
What do you do when you feel thirsty?
- You mistake it for hunger and eat.
- You may go for a soft drink, ice cream, fruit juice, beer or some other energy drink, but not water. Even though some of them contain good amount of water, they are foods. They can’t do the work of water.
Is it right to expect your body to work properly without giving what it needs?
The result of this mistake?- The brief disturbances (passing urine) you wanted to avoid by not drinking water, can lead to many health problems like constipation, kidney infections, skin allergies, hypertension and drive you to hospitals. It is not only a very long and painful disturbance; you will lose money and peace of mind. Never under estimate the importance of drinking water.
