WATER ~ NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION ~ YES!!!

WATER WEIGHT LOSS

Is losing weight one of your 2013 New Year’s resolutions?

Perhaps the following article, The Water Weight Loss Cure from Care2, posted by Annie B. Bond, September 2005 will help.

Water can be one of your best friends during a weight loss regime. Although beauty is largely a matter of inner radiance, physical treatments can help keep us feeling and looking our best. Water remedies can be quite effective in maintaining the figure and skin in particular.

WATER WEIGHT LOSS7
Weight gain from overeating can cause unflattering changes to the figure, but it can be fought with a water remedy. By drinking generous amounts of water (more than a half-gallon (or 2 liters) a day, you can reduce the amount of food consumed and also eliminate false hunger pains.

Furthermore, good hydration of the tissues encourages enzymatic activity and therefore the burning of fat deposits. To lose weight drink 2.5 to 3.5 liters a day, on the higher side the more you weigh and eat.

WATER WEIGHT LOSS10Water is an essential ingredient for skin regeneration. The skin of a 130-pound individual contains around 2 gallons of water, and the skin of a 160-pound individual contains almost 2.5 gallons of water. This water is retained by special molecules capable of holding in place a thousand times their weight of the skin and the loss of a fresh youthful appearance. When the skin lacks water, it becomes dull, dry, and wrinkled and loses its elasticity, firmness, and color, and glands eliminate toxins poorly and become congested causing skin problems. Hydrating skin properly by drinking enough prevents these assaults on the skin. To maintain youthful skin, around 2.5 liters of water a day should be sufficient.

NATO PETITION ~ ARCTIC COUNCIL ~ WORTHWHILE!!

I’ve copied information I received from care2.com, regarding the petition I signed.  In my collage I’ve included a map of Greenland and Canada to point out the close proximity of the two countries and I find it rather alarming now that China’s interest in the area has been confirmed.

The Arctic Council is supposed to protect this incredible part of the earth from exploitation and destruction. But with climate change melting Greenland‘s waters, China is aggressively looking for a profit from mining and new shipping routes. Yet, it also wants to be an observer on the Council. Talk about conflict of interest!

I signed a petition voicing my concerns to NATO and Arctic Council officials and urged them to make sure they keep protecting the Arctic‘s natural resources.

I know you care about the health of our planet too, so I thought you’d want to join me and sign.

Here’s the link:

Greenland’s once frozen waters are now nearly ice-free. China’s not worried about the effect of global warming on the environment, though. They’re more concerned about getting first dibs on profiting from the area’s decline. 

China’s vying to become a permanent observer for the Arctic Council, a position that would allow them a say in decisions involving minerals and shipping
So far, they’ve been incredibly aggressive in the move to gain unclaimed Arctic regions. China has shown they’re uniquely qualified to access gas and oil sources in tricky locations in the northern Arctic. Since China also has an interest in exploring potential commercial shipping short-cuts through the area, they sent a ship to scout out possible routes.
Allowing countries to use the Arctic for shipping routes and mining will only expose Greenland waters to worse environmental distress.
Urge NATO and the Arctic Council to protect the Arctic and its natural resources!
 
If you did sign the petition thank you so very much.
