  4. helps flush out waste
  5. carries nutrients to cells
  6. protects organs

 

 

Water Before Bedtime

About 90% of heart attacks occur early in the morning. If one takes a glass or two of water, not pop/Kool aide or beer before retiring in the evening, research reports, morning heart attacks can be minimized.

Yes, if you drink water before going to bed, you may have to use the bathroom before dawn!

Did you know that? Water: composes 75% of the brain, helps carry nutrients and oxygen to body cells, makes 83% of blood, removes waste, makes up 76% of muscles, helps convert food to energy, helps lower blood pressure and helps activate internal organs.

 

The Will To Change II

In the beginning God populated the earth with broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so man/woman would live long and healthy lives. Then using God's great gifts, Satan created ice cream and fried doughnuts.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep fried them. And man/woman gained 10 pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created double cheeseburgers and asked do you need fries? And man replied, "Yea!" Satan said, "It is good." And man went into cardiac arrest.

God signed and created quadruple bypass surgery ... and Satan created HMOs.
