Rule #1 in weight loss- Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
They say you need to drink 8 glasses of water a day so that your metabolism functions properly and you don’t retain water … something like that.
The truth is that when you drink lots of water you have to pee really bad all the time. When I have to pee that bad I can’t think about anything but getting to the bathroom. If I’m thinking about getting to the bathroom before I pee my pants then I can’t be thinking about how hungry I am because I just started a diet. If I’m obsessing over making it through a meeting before needing to do the pee-pee dance, I won’t be able to obsess over the twenty delightful pastries they brought in for the meeting.
As you can tell, I just got back from the ladies room and suddenly realized I’m starving! And thinking a bit too much…now.
The diet pepsi can is just there for size reference.
