One of our beautiful friends has lost her hair. ♥️♥️ She is facing her fourth round of Chemo and needs to stay strong. Today we make a stand as a Phatt family to send her our love from all over the world. We wear our beanies just like hers so that she feels she belongs. So that she knows we have taken a moment to think of her. 🙏🙏🙏
Cancer has touched all of our lives in one form or another, through our friends or our families. Today it touches our Phatt Family and collectively we gather to wrap our friend with love. 💕💕💕
Caroline Angell I hope you know how much we love you. We value your contribution to our lives and to our Team. 💖💖💖
Phatt is so much more than a weight loss program. We are a Family. A DYNAMIC FAMILY. 💝💝💝
Are you struggling to drink all your water whilst the weather is cool??? 💦💧☔️💧💦
Here’s some important reasons why you should & how it’s going to help you lose those unwanted kilos!! 💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫
Drinking water may be the most important piece to the weight loss puzzle. Before we learn the role water has in your weight loss journey, let us briefly go over the importance of water for our body in general.
Water helps eliminate toxins through urination, carries nutrients to cells and prevents dehydration. The process of burning calories requires an adequate supply of water in order to function efficiently and water helps the body metabolize and burn fat. Water plays a major role in how every single cell, tissue and organ in our body operates and is important to almost every bodily function.
Water contains no calories, fat, or cholesterol and is low in sodium. It is nature's appetite suppressant, and it helps the body to metabolize fat. Current research shows that low water intake yields an increase in fat deposits. Conversely, high water intake reduces the amount of fat deposits. Without enough water, the kidneys will not function properly. As a result, some of their workload is pushed off onto the liver, in turn preventing the liver from operating at peak levels.
How does all this tie into weight loss?
Because metabolizing fat is a primary function of the liver, and because the liver can't function at peak levels when taking on the added workload from the kidneys, less body fat is metabolized and more is stored. If the liver does not have sufficient water it cannot reach total productivity and will not metabolize fat efficiently, leading fat to store in the body. This leads to either weight gain or reaching a plateau of weight loss. To increase your ability to metabolize fat and lose weight, you should drink plenty of clean water to improve your kidney and liver functions.
Not drinking enough can make you gain weight!
When your body is not getting enough water it holds on to what it has, resulting in water retention. As a simple survival mechanism your body has a tendency to hold onto and store what it doesn’t think it will get in the future. Once your body recognizes that it is getting a steady supply of water it will release the water weight it has been holding. Water weight is stored in your waist, face, and ankles and is released when there is no longer a reason for your body to store it.
