0 (1s): Hello, and welcome to the get lean and eat clean podcast. My name is Brian grin. I'm a certified health coach, trainer and author. And this podcast is for middle-aged men and women looking to optimize their health and get their bodies back to what it once was 10 to 15 years ago. I will give you simple, actionable items to get long-term sustainable results. Thanks for listening and enjoy the show. All right, welcome to the get lean eat clean podcast. My name is Brian grin, and I hope you had a great weekend and happy Tuesday. If you're listening to this on Tuesday, we'll feel listened on Friday to my interview with Melanie Avalon. 0 (45s): She was great tons of great biohack tips. And we talked about wine. We talked about drinking the correct water, many different things all around MCT oils. So definitely check that out and it made me want to talk about water. Actually. We just touched on it briefly with Melanie and she talked about deteriorate, depleted water, which I'm still learning more about, but I don't know. I just try to find, you know, these hacks, these hacks that can be sort of simply and easily done and make the biggest impact. And I think water is really one of them and I'm a victim of it too. I probably don't drink enough water as it is. 0 (1m 27s): I'd have a filtration system in the house, which I think is quality, which is good, but most people will make mistakes of either not drinking enough, heavy drinking, low quality unclean water and not mineralizing that water. So I tend to buy sometimes I'll get some spring water, liquid death is a brand. I use a lot, they have some sparkling water and some miniaturized water as well. So check that company out. It's cool. Comes in aluminum cans. So no more plastic if you're drinking out of plastic, I think you're behind the times a little bit. I would just eliminate that. We've heard enough about how the plastic can leak into the, into the water. 0 (2m 7s): So, but let's talk about drinking water intelligently, the benefits. There's a lot of benefits and I thought it would be important to have an episode on water because it is one of those things that I think we take for granted and hydration can be a little bit tricky in the sense that, you know, how much do we drink? What type of water should we drink? There's all these different things. So I'm gonna try to simplify it as much as I can and you can take it for what it is, but quite literally, we really can't live without water. So I think it's important to talk about it's one of those principles that get overlooked a lot, and our body's actually made up of 60% of water. 0 (2m 47s): So to say that it's important is a understatement. Now the problem with a lot of water out there is these tap waters are contaminated with chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and other like health sapping, toxins, and most bottled water. Like I mentioned before is not good. Either. These cheap plastic bottles have been shown to, you know, to leech endocrine, disrupting chemicals in the water. So, you know, I play golf over the summer. I've made it a habit to have my own water bottle, which obviously is not plastic. And I just refill that. That'd be a good habit to get into. 0 (3m 29s): Well, let's talk about some of the benefits to drinking ideal volumes of pure mineral, rich water. And I'll tell you how you can do that. One of them is improved cognitive function and mood. There's some research that's demonstrated that being dehydrated by only 2% of our body weight in peers, cognitive import performance and dampens your subjective mood. So a state of ideal hydration can keep the brain detoxification mechanisms running smoothly. Number two, healthier, better looking skin. You w while a lot goes a long way, having bright youthful skin and staying hydrated is a critical factor. 0 (4m 11s): A lot of things, I think that gets overlooked a lot, but you know, your skin is a huge organ in your body. And if you're slightly dehydrated, it's going to pull water from your skin in order to ensure that the vital organs stay hydrated. So the more you're hydrated, the brighter, healthier looking skin and softer skin will tend to look. You want to improve. You get like you can also have improved toxin elimination. You talk about like eliminating toxins from the body and decreasing inflammation. Well, the body needs water to move and expel toxins via the lymphatic fluid sweating urination. Something I've been working on is, you know, I'm luckily that I can go on a sauna quite a bit. 0 (4m 53s): So doing some sweating is really important, but I have to make sure that I rehydrate because when we're less than ideally hydrated, our detoxification systems slow and toxins can accumulate. So that is number three, number four, improve gut health and digestion. So if you're not having complete regular bowel movements, you could be under hydrated, something that also doesn't get talked a lot about. So if you're not adequately hydrated, your body is going to shuttle available water to your central organs. And your GI tract is not at the top of the list. So movements of, of having like it's called purr purr, I'd say this 20 times, Paris, Dallas, it's slow prose per stylist, and you're heading towards constipation. 0 (5m 45s): That's just a movement of intestines. So in most parts of the country, tap water, tap water is treated with chlorine chloramine and fluoride. All of these are antibacterial and surprisingly harmful to the gut. So essentially if you're not having regular bowel movements, you might be dehydrated under hydrated. And if you're drinking, tap water with chlorine chloramine and fluoride, you could be causing some issues in the gut. So which leads to my next point, avoiding chlorine, fluoride, and other contaminants. Now you can see your tap water and, you know, go online and see the quality of your tap water. I think in general, Chicago has decent tap water, but most municipal water is treated with chlorine and fluoride. 0 (6m 29s): So you also have to keep out for heavy metals as well. So all of these, all of these contaminants have been shown to negatively impact your gut flora and disrupt endocrine hormonal function. So those were some of the benefits and some of could be the downsides of not having adequate hydration. So what should you do? Well, I would be drinking spring water only. You can actually search. I was on this just called find a spring.com and I can put a link where you can find clean Springs near you. There's some not too far from me, but drinking spring water, or even like some type of filter filtrate, filtered water. 0 (7m 16s): There's something called Berkeley filtered water and reverse osmosis. And then how much should you drink? You know, drinking enough water is probably probably more than you think. What I've seen from some of the other studies is 0.6 to one ounce of water per pound of body weight in any 24 hour period. So where you sh you know, that sort of a wide range 0.6 to one ounce of water per body weight. So for me, I'm about one 70, that'd be a hundred and almost 170 ounces of water. Now I probably don't get that much, but it also depends on where you live, what climate you live. I mean, obviously if you're down south and, and you're sweating more, you know, and your tick activity, maybe activity level is high and it's dry there, you were on a, would be on the operator, upper range of one ounce of water per body weight. 0 (8m 7s): So depending on where you live right now in Chicago, it's not as much. I probably don't need to get quite that as much water as maybe someone that lives down south in Florida. And also just keep in mind that you want to remineralize this water. So like, let's just say you filter the water, right? And you have a good filtration system, right? That takes the contaminants from your water. It also is going to remove a lot of the beneficial minerals and electrolytes. And this is also important if you're fasting, right? You want to stay hydrated a lot, make the FastCo a lot easier as well. So while the water is clean, cause you filtered it, you want to sort of put back the minerals back into it. 0 (8m 49s): And cause if you're drinking mineral devoid, filtered water that can pull metals from your body over time, potentially creating some type of deficiency. So this empty water that you cleaned out, you want to meet remineralize. I use a mineral drop that I'm drawing a blank on the name, but there's a bunch out there. One of them's called hydros trace mineral and electrolyte drops. There's one on Amazon that I get as well. And you can sort of re remineralize your water with these traps. And lastly, you want to drink warm water. First thing in the morning, this would be a good habit to get into. I tend to have water in the morning. Is it warm? Not quite, but you want to have body temperature, water, fully dehydrating. 0 (9m 32s): First thing in the morning, you know, sort of brings all your body systems back online and you'll, you might notice some benefit in your brain function and digestion. So it's almost like a call to action to get, to get going because overnight, surprisingly, I found this, the average person loses about one liter of water every night during sleep, due to a normal respiration and perspiration. So one liter of water every night, that's about 2.2 pounds of water. And if you live somewhere, dry could be more than that. So you're losing water overnight. So get up, drink some warm water in the morning, maybe a little bit of lemon in there as well. 0 (10m 12s): And that's a perfect way to start the day. So there you have it all about water. I'm still learning about this. I know with Melanie, we talked about the deteriorate depleted water, which I think can run pretty expensive if you're drinking that all the time, I think most important, good quality water filtration, remineralize drink first thing in the morning and just maybe start tracking water. You can get one of these big, you know, glass bottles where, you know, you sort of can put it where you want it to be. You're allowed to see you see these lifts, weightlifters walking around the gym, and then, but I think it can go a long way if you just sort of track it that way and just have one big bottle might not fit in your car, but either way. 0 (10m 57s): So hopefully this helps maybe gets you motivated to drink clean water, drink enough of it, remineralize and drink first thing in the morning. So hope you appreciate this one, have a great rest of the week. And we'll talk to you later. Thanks for listening to the get lean, eat clean podcast.
