Water for Weight Loss
Welcome to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness. I'm Joanne right out. I'm registered and licensed Dietitian in joining me as a co host is Caroline Hudson who's also a registered in licensed Dietitian. Today we have the pleasure of having your local water expert Richard Grassy owner. Richard's custom water systems with us. He's here to share his expertise about the contaminants found in tap water. And why it's so important to filter your water. Our goal this morning is to discuss a variety of information about the importance of water filtered water and today we are especially focusing on how drinking water helps with weight loss and why the quality of water is so important. Well Good morning everyone. I remember when you told a story about your additional drinking water extra glasses of water and how it helped you lose several pounds so I know our listeners love love to hear some of ours testimonials stories. So would you mind sharing that with us? Sure I can do that in our nutrition for weightless classes we give our class participants. A handout that says water is the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. This handout has eight key. Biochemical reasons that drinking water supports weight loss? So I thought to myself I WANNA test this information out so added a couple extra glasses which is about three cups of Water. Daily and the good news is in two weeks. I lost four pounds. I didn't change what I was eating. I didn't change my exercise. I didn't change my sleep. I just drank three additional cups of filtered water every day so I also know the coffees dehydrating so I was basically trying to all combat at right. Yeah that coffee and so that's what my was. My goal is to just drink a little more water from that standpoint. So in our nutrition for weight loss classes. We teach about the importance of drinking water. But I wanted to prove it to myself so I can personally say I know. Drinking Water supports weight. Loss is true because it happened for me when you shared that with us. I think it was at one of our nutritionist Meetings I think all of us went. Oh my gosh. We got to share that with our listeners. Because that's really impactful ended in who doesn't like to hear a good success story right so today. We are actually going to take our first half of the show to discuss some of the reasons that sufficient Consumption of water results in that way lost and then during the second half of the show we will address the importance of the quality of the water. So let's get started with why it is that we need water for weight loss. The first thing I always think of an one of the most important reasons to drink sufficient water is that your kidneys cannot function properly without water. That's right and that is so important when your kidneys don't have enough water to function. Well the liver takes over some of the kidneys workload. So the problem is the livers job is breaking down and metabolising stored fat into energy. And the liver is doing some of the kidneys work. It can't operate at full speed. Which means less fat is going to be metabolized. It's GonNa Affect Your metabolism and you won't lose as much weight right so drinking water is really the key to that fat metabolism because it actually allows the kidneys to function properly and then that weight loss occurs so a lot of our clients really struggle with with that and this just knowing that fact. Ropes them then encourages them to drink a little more water right. Yeah so how do you go about making sure you are actually drinking enough water? So I'm going to challenge every one of you out there all of our listeners to make a commitment to drink at least ten glasses of water daily. I'm talking ten eight glasses of filtered water every day in fact since water supports weight loss and your immune function. We're going to challenge you to drink that much water for at least the next two weeks. Maybe it should be more like four or six or eight or forever so that you know maybe you'll lose some weight at first. And how great is that? But the other thing is. This is really important right now. It is going to help your strengthen your immune system so that's really essential during this crisis of epidemic that we have right now that's for sure and I also want to share some more important facts about water so number one. Seventy five percent of Americans are chronically dehydrated. And that's not too surprising to me because I look at Health. Histories and very few people are drinking adequate amounts of water so the second fact is thirty. Seven percent of Americans think. They're hungry when they just need a to drink a glass of water. So think about this every time you are hungry. Have a glass of water. I yes GONNA help your weight. Loss process immensely and the third is that dehydration can slow down your metabolism absolutely so. Here's another interesting fact. Every day our body loses two and a half to three quarters of water daily. Okay you know. That's almost one hundred Alice's right. That is twelve eight ounce glasses of water a day. Even more if you're outside and you're sweating you're in the heat so if you're having any trouble losing weight try drinking more water few days to get your body actually ready to lose that weight. Remember when your kidneys? Don't have enough water to detox. Naturally your liver takes over part of the job at the kidneys and then it's not available right to help you lose that way that's right. Your metabolism suffers for sure. So here's another reason for you to drink some water when we don't drink enough water we get dry. Skin wrinkles may suffer from constipation or fluid retention and even high blood pressure. Yes I said high blood pressure so the first time I learned this I was really an a Ha moment for me about how the blood pressure's affected by dehydration but it is interesting that good. Hydration makes your heart. Which is a pump. Were better so your blood. Pressure's maybe you can reduce your medication. Or maybe you can reduce your blood pressure with water. Here's another fairly unknown fact. Overweight people need more water to metabolize. They're stored fat the National Center for Health. Statistics estimates that two out of three adults are currently either overweight or obese so based on that information it would appear that two out of three adults drink to need to drink more filtered water every single day so and you would really think Joanne that drinking water to lose weight would be an easy thing right. But it's not and you have to try to figure out different ways to get that much water in so I have Many of my clients are teachers. I'm sure you do too. What did they tell you? I can't drink that water because I have to get up and go to the bathroom. I can't do that. I've right classroom full of students. So they have very limited bathroom breaks so perhaps all of you out there right now. You're working at home. Maybe this is a challenge for you for the next. We don't know how many weeks at least four four weeks start drinking more water. Try Drinking eight nine or ten glasses of water a day and see if that helps your weight loss. That's right when I tell my clients. That waters a natural anti-aging nutrient and it prevents it helps prevent sagging skin. It's supports good brain function. Some of them can't start drinking water soon enough so some people are motivated by that wrinkle thing. I did all. That always motivates me for sure also sometimes I have teenage clients some of them come to see me because they have acne. When I tell them if you replace drinking your sodas with drinking water there will be a big reduction in your acne breakouts. What a great feeling it is when these teenagers from sulking to smiling and then thanking me for giving them such a simple solution so water can be our genie in a bottle for many health. Conditions are teenagers. Love that when we tell them. Oh you can clear up some of your acne just by drinking a little more water right so as you may have noticed. We just love giving interesting facts onto all of our listeners. So here's one more interesting fact about water that some of you already may be aware of a person can actually go for weeks without food but can only go without water for a few days while. I think it's almost time for a break here. Yes you're listening to dishing up nutrition. Today we are discussing how you can use water to help your body lose weight. We also have a special guest Richard Grassy. He's the owner of Richard's custom water systems in in and he's in studio with us today to share his expertise about water quality. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition and nutritional weight and wellness. We are still open for business. Both for nutrition consultations and for supplement purchases however to protect the safety of everyone. We've changed how the nutrition consultations and purchases will be carried out each of our Dietitians and nutritionists are available for appointments by phone or video as a Dietitian. I personally have been very busy helping clients who are concerned about having a strong immune system and also helping my current clients and even new clients who have a variety of other nutrition problems and health issues. So do you have health concerns that you'd like help with you can call six five one six nine nine three four three eight and we will set up your phone or video appointment or if you prefer you can go to weight and wellness. Dot Com and book. An appointment for yourself so we have. I've been surprised at how busy we are. Yeah they're opt very busy. I've been swamped do very busy with people. Having questions about what's going on right now and keeping their health current exactly an optimal. So if you're also we've been talking about water but back to our water topic if you're having some memory problems. Here is one possible solution. Drink more water because the brain is composed of about seventy five to eighty five percent water and consists of nearly sixty percent fat which makes it the fattest organ in our body. That's that's really interesting isn't that is interesting. Yeah I was Kinda shocked to find that out. Yes and drinking sufficient water and eating beneficial natural fats support brain function and memory. Most of the brain fat is a mega three. Dha Fatty acid. So I remember that Nancy Lindgren. Our guest from last week's show Food to support sobriety said that she starts her days drinking. A large glass of water Supporting her brain function by drinking water and eating real food has really helped her achieve her thirty nine years of continuous sobriety. So Water and food actually worked together hand in hand for better brain function. So what does research say about how? Drinking Water Helps People lose weight. A study published in obesity. In September of Twenty fifteen found that when middle aged and older adults drank water before each meal they lost four and a half pounds in twelve week period of time while federal grant good. That's great and when easy solution in a year they could potentially lose up to eighteen pounds. All they did was drink a glass of water before each meal bottom line. Drinking water helps us with weight. Loss cheers to that as right lately. That's really nice so I want to share some of the ways that I get my water in everyday first of all I drank large glass of water right when I get up in the morning and believe me. I love my coffee but I also know. Coffee is a diary back so it you know it it dehydrates you. So my drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning. I'm protecting my body and my brain and I'm not only just hydrating my brain but I will actually probably drink less coffee. I'm sure I drink less coffee when I do. That and I tried to do that every single morning. So the second thing I do. Is I drink herbal teas throughout the day and occasionally you know that counts as part part of my total water intake and thirdly I usually add some flavor to at least one of my glasses of water every day and that could be some lemon lime or or Orange slices or the other thing I really like and right now. This is a really good thing to do is use some of our key. Greens and fruit. So I put a maybe a quarter of a scoop of that into a glass of water and that adds a nice little subtle flavor and the thing with the key. Greens and fruits. Also it helps helps get you more. Antioxidants and antioxidants are really good for your body. Basically to drink enough water every day you really need to have a well thought out system in place. Sometimes we tell people you know. Put a pitcher of water Out that the total amount of water that you should be drinking throughout the day and see how much you actually get in right so drinking enough water is often a goal that most of my clients have because when they do they're going to feel better and have more energy and that's a goal for all of us right yeah absolutely so caroline tonight each have one more interesting fact to share with you about water. Water is a natural appetite. Suppressant if you're feeling hungry your body may be saying I am thirsty so we talked about this a little bit before but really think about this. Next time you feel hungry. Try Drinking one or two glasses of water first before you're thinking about before you meal or before you need a meal or a snack and it's amazing. How well that works? Sometimes you find. You're not even hungry. So here's a final fact that I'm going to share with you today. If you are experiencing fluid retention one of the best ways to actually get rid of that extra fluid in your body is to drink more water. I know that sounds really counterintuitive. Yes but it you know this is a habit that is very difficult for most people To kind of wrap their head around you know if they have swollen ankles or whatever I tell them you will you actually need to drink more water. And it doesn't make any sense by but if they do drink the right amount of water for their body they they will retain a more water a bio chemically in the opposite direction inside the cells so small. 'cause that swelling be more balanced drinking sufficient water actually leases that fluid retention. Add to the fluid retention. That is a really hard concept for people to wrap their heads around but definitely works. Yup so another concern. Have you ever had a memory problem? Or maybe a word recall problem. Your brain might be telling you you need to drink more water help. -solutely I think a lot of us with all of this stress these last few weeks. We are having a little bit of a recall type problems so today we have given you many reasons to drink enough water for weight loss as well as good brain and body function so now what we wanna do is switch gears a little bit and dig into the quality of the water and Richard Grassy. He's the owner of Richard's custom water systems. And He's here with us today. Richard I have noticed that water quality has been in the news again lately so recently there was an article titled Worry Over Water Safety and the that that was in the Star Tribune and it was about nitrates rising in rural tap water. Welcome Richard will thank you thank you both caroline and join for having me on the program. I'm delighted to be here So water water is in the news. And it doesn't surprise me because water a universal solvent but relating to nitrate so nitrates are one of three chemicals contaminants that are tested on all private wells and the lobby. Limit is ten parts per million of nitrates. Personally in my opinion that's just a guideline I don't consider eight or seven or six or five to be safe. There have to stay after south guidelines so that yes water in general that wells. Don't fail but If we know anything about nitrates and you ladies Mary do but it. It decreases the of They wanted to carry out the auction Karen ability of the blood so it's causes Blue Baby Syndrome which you may know so. It's not a good thing but we don't we tell all our clients avoid nitrates at all right now we now. We know they're in our water. Simple little thing is there's a massive difference between filtered water by definition and purified water and so pure a good purification system will remove nitrates or at least reduce it depending on how good the devices filtration it passes right through fell. Tyson resolve solid unfold. We're already ready for a second breaks or we'll get back to where shortly you're listening to dishing up nutrition. This past week we had a facebook post from a listener in Australia. Who is enrolled in our nutrition for weight loss program? Here's a portion of the comments. She shared quote. I increased my water intake and watered. Now fills me up. Oftentimes when people feel hungry as John said earlier they also actually are just thirsty but they may just need a glass of water and not really hungry and we'll be right back at the end of a busy day. It can be tough to get motivated to get out the door for another obligation and once you cozy at home.

Welcome back to dishing up nutrition if you are having trouble sleeping. I encourage you to join the discussion next week about the importance of sleep and how you can get more of that.

So they're turning to drinking filtered water and you just mentioned the difference between filter and purification But when I'm teaching the weight and wellness classes people often ask me if tap. Water is safe to drink. So how would you answer that question? Risks Richard. I would say that it's legally safe to drink. Okay good describe description. It's an upside down equation in only one percent of all the water that comes into a person's homes home is used for what you'd call life support purposes whether it's cooking mixing scheming vegetables. Whatever so when night when only ninety nine percent is going down the drain. They can't make the water high high quality. Yeah that makes sense one percent. That's pretty low. Yup Things I want to add to that. So and then Don't you come out and do testing right so yes Carolyn. Lives in Eden Prairie and. I live in Ravensdale so completely different waters right so this really kind of I look at four different types of waters. There's Mississippi or groundwater river water which has its variables then we have city well-water which is most of the soon as you get out of the inner I inner circle of Minneapolis. Stairs. No Not Rob Rob instills it really excessively has high high dissolved solids in it but Minneapolis Golden Valley a crystal new hope. Those are all kind of getting their water from the Mississippi River. Then when you get to the next ring. Those are all city wells city rows okay and then if we go out of out of out into the country now we're on private wells so private wells and Sidwell's typically both get their water from the same water source. It's from a slowly. Moving River called an aquifer and the aquifer goes hundreds and hundreds of miles so Eden Prairie for example is more like Mississippi River water kind of because they do treat it and have less hardness in the water as an example and the dissolve salts in the water are less but robin sales one of the highest and dissolved solids around the twin cities. It's Ravensdale Chaska. That are so so we have. We have simple chemicals that are suspended in the water in the form of gas. Okay and we have the difficult ones that were solid. That are now totally dissolved in the water. Okay Okay so. We have two areas of improvement so water is the same then right. No it's not and and the other big picture here is only one percent of what into water causes cased so you can't tell water-quality by taste and when you make water cold you numb your ability to so the big test of water for someone that has has really had really good water and then they go and drink tap water. They really notice the difference. Because it's such an extreme because you're used to something and now it's you get the subtle differences just because you're used to but we cannot tell water quality by taste right. So how do you determine if someone should filter their water? Well you know me a little bit of a loaded question because because of what? I know I think everyone should do something to their water. You know again if we if we're living in a country and I said earlier that we there's one hundred over one hundred thousand manmade chemicals. No you hundred over a hundred thousand Vernon made chemicals currently in use in the United States. And you're saying that those are all possibly in our water. Water comes in contact with universal. Solve it so we have one hundred thousand and we have a thousand new ones every year. And if you paint a picture only one percent of all those variables that can find the wind. Water cost taste so things are silently in our water now. They're not saying I'm in here right there. Unerring US silently and they're also the Safe Water Drinking Act of nineteen seventy four that initially had cities tests for twenty two chemicals about forty years later now cities are mandated by law to about one hundred. So the big picture about that is. That's a that's a drop in the bucket to the potential. Gary Aliens wanted to be scary but water's a big deal for the thirty five years that I've been in the water business it used to be people would say. Oh it's our water fine and its exact opposite of that now will realize that they should do something to the water. And when we think of seventy or so percent water shouldn't be at the top of our priority at definitely should be absolutely and the other thing. I know that both of the no that no there isn't a single function that takes place in her body without water just as we were talking and function very well without adequate amount of water so it just and I still haven't really answered this thing about testing so so the chemical suspended in the form of a gas or so easy to remove simple filtration and remove somewhere at least reduces them a simple filter refrigerator will reduce those which is why the filter in there. Frigerator it's called the tastes notre filter. Or if you screw something up onto your boss at the water goes right through and comes right out. That's a simple filter take a case. Don't take out the easy things. It will not address the difficult things which were the dissolved solids and those are measurable. Right right okay. So a lot of my clients will say okay. I have a refrigerator filter and I think okay bets like a one level carbon urban filter. Right right yes thinking that. So that's only going to take out how much well it's going to deal with the chemical suspended in the water in the form of a gas so living in Eden prairie so the difficult things in water. I'm are called parts per million Michigan. Parts per million of totally dissolved solids solids that are now totally dissolved in the water. So if you go buy bottled water and a store as an example on it says purified water to make that claim. It cannot measure more than ten parts per million alcock Eden Prairie is going to have somewhere between ninety and about two hundred parts per million in their water robbins. Details over five hundred to give you an ounce so those dissolved solids are the things that's where heavy metals lead nitrate salts saw based substances that's where Florida's that's worth from circles were found. That's where the newest big concern in our country isn't necessarily pharmaceuticals are there. They're not on the list of one hundred seventy s to test for them. But they're being the newest issue is the micro-plastics micro-plastics personal care products. Yes Adler not on the list. So nobody has to testify NASA national issue. Yeah and I think didn't weren't we talking about that? Astra Jains to the estrogen. Recent show beginning March. We had a show about the estrogens water and other things and everything that we're getting back into the we're in a closed system. There isn't any more water on the planet. Now been them at the beginning of time. So whatever we're doing today ends up somebody else's water I mean that's not a nice thought but Yeah so recycled. Wow these things. You're talking about the dissolved solids and the and the drugs and things like that. So we need to have reverse osmosis in order to get to that level. We'll yes okay. Yes the the the thing to know about. Reverse osmosis though is reverse. Osmosis is a technology. It is not a given water purity. There's more crappy systems in my mind sold in our marketplace on in this country than good ones so people I'm GonNa buy our own off by this one right. I love all the time Nixon haste out but when we go because I we take them out all the time out of people's homes all the time Especially once people realize. They're not really doing what they think. Because you can measure the level of in parts per million of dissolved solids to see how effective assistance that makes sense a hassle. So we take so. I was very disillusioned when I came in industry thirty five years ago. I was told that I sold the best storrow made and it remove ninety nine percent of the of the contaminants in water. So they're saying we got the best one I should. I told the story now or do you want to look. Continue the story after break. So you're listening to dishing up nutrition. I want to remind you that we are offering individual nutrition counseling by phone or video. All of our online classes are available with many different topics at weight and wellness dot com. And we have staff answering calls and emails so please call us or email us if you have questions. We have free shipping on all of our supplements and we continue to offer. Corporate classes are webinars. And we'll be right back. Welcome back to dishing up nutrition so many people just do not realize that good. Intestinal health is key to having a strong immune system. I encourage you to read a blog written by licensed nutritionist. Elizabeth LEP art called our most recommended probiotic Bifida balance again. I emphasize that good intestinal health is a key to strong immune function and that's a supplement that we always start with when we're working with someone. Great probiotic yes. So Richard. Before we went to break you were telling us a story. Well yes sorry so yes and so when I came into the industry over thirty five years ago and I'm selling this Working for a local water company Water Treatment Company. And they're telling me that they have the best zero. So I'm out there we've got the best. Roi Removes Ours. Removes Ninety nine percent of its in the water and I my territory was the southeast metro the Farmington Lakeville Rosemont was my neighbor. The area that I worked in and I sold a water softener. In this name-brand Aro system does family. I mean that development a month later and I'm early for my appointment so I thought why not just knock on these folk store and show them. What a great decision they made. So when it with my with my meter measured the water and it was seventy five percent pure not ninety-nine percent pure so month old system was already leading twenty five percent of the difficult things. The dissolve salts passed through it while month. All and and that made me a liar. I mean we're responsible for everything that we say right but the good news is it took me on a journey to find out. Is there an American manufacturer? That does this properly. And so I went and the company's called Aqua thin. They're out of Pompano Beach Florida and I went on my own of shortly after that took all their training and I've had the rights of that product ever since and now we have thirty over thirty years of history on how effective this device in there. Still nothing on the marketplace that keeps water at this very pristine level of round one to two parts. And your later when we're back to maintain it our thing is we always want to keep it below ten. Because the definition of purified water is that it cannot measure more than ten parts per million. If it's eleven it's not in can be called purified water in more and I know I always tell my clients and I'm sure you do too. Joann if you'RE GONNA buy modeled water at least five purified water. Don't buy spring water because that's not regulated in any way right so we'll just be drinking your tap water now so a few years ago the environmental working group found eighty three different agricultural pollutants such as pesticides the chemicals from fertilizers and even Manure Laden runoff. Pollutants they also found industrial chemicals and bacteria. Hormones drug residues herbicides and more so Richard. You're telling us about all these particles. Can we actually determine if there are specific drug residues in our state so when we go out when I go out with my crew out? We're going to do a simple tests. Where if we test for the level of totally dissolved solids. It's all the dissolved solids one number right with that has pharmaceuticals as part of it or if that has arsenic as part of Earth at has whatever of exit chromium or pharmaceuticals or whatever that would be a separate test of number of test. Because you have to tripping it separately right and that would go to a lab so people would go to lap so and if people say well. I'm concerned that my water has the P. A. S. that is on the east side of the city. The three M you say. Well it's a concern but there's so much else going on you could spend a bunch of money test for it and you'll know today but what's what's happening a month later you don't know so my whole thing is. I'm not so specific on what's in our water because we know we know there's multiple things there we don't want okay. And when we get to city water not to make cities bad when you add chlorine or Cora means to water so we used to use chlorine as a disinfectant for water supply when chlorine interacts with manmade chemicals called synthetic organic chemical compounds. The family of chemicals are formed our that our former called trihalomethanes. They're not good for us at all. And there's a tendency now. The cities are moving away from chlorine to chloride means as an additive chlor means or a combination of chlorine and ammonia harder to remove and really worse for us. Oh boy wow so and then you know then. There's the of course the topic of Florida the whole other than that. I used to not talk about because there was such a strong belief in people controversy on. There's a wall people aren't gonNA listen so that but that's changed. Most people realize that we don't want floyd and when they're educated that the Florida in toothpaste is not the same form. What's typically editor? And I think that's the important part is important you know the the floride is different in toothpaste than the floride that they're adding to our water correct so her dental health right. That's right but there's two things when you put Florida and toothpaste or if you have a fluoride treatment you're spitting it out right and that's calcium fluoride so ninety percent of the Florida the water supply in this country as a waste product from the Lumina M- fertilizer industry called floor silica acid. We don't want it. We got one drink it. It's not going in our mouth and affecting our teeth ghost every cell of our body and there's all kinds of major universities are now that are saying no no no to Florin very interesting and you. You have to wonder are these contaminants causing many of our illnesses to dance. Emil Joanna and I see clients all of our nutritionists. Well everybody in. The healthcare world is seeing many many more diseases. You know in people. So what's causing all of this right where we live in a relatively polluted environment in general? Redo in waters a major part of it. Yeah yes right yes. That's right so many of our listeners. Drink water from private wells and I think a lot of people have kind of a false sense of security with those private wells right because yes because I think all people living in the city and they're and they're but the test for about one hundred pro wells are under regulation to be tested for three things E. coli bacteria nitrates and now arsenic and arsenic is not good for us. It's not measured in parts per million like nitrates are it's measured in parts per billion some personal call and say you know we're over the legal limit of ten parts per billion arsenic. We we had our water tested. Can you get us in the in the safe range? Can you get us in the legal range you don't want to do? Business is somewhat careful what I say. But wow it's a guideline yeah it's a guideline? I think that's really important to hear right. And you did say earlier to all of these different levels of of Different types of water systems of where? They're getting their water from. And all of our wells basically are in the same aquifer if so what difference does it make if we're a hundred miles from a big city in any industry but people that live on wealth. What least least we don't have to do with chlorine or raise right at least you don't have to deal with fluoride because the city ads those and private well owners don't have that as a variable but they have other vary vary some bacteria in the well. The only time the vet gets tested as when a house is built with a new well or new well as or if a house changes ownership testing for E. coli bacteria interesting again. So that's becoming more of a topic. We're doing more disinfection through ultra-violet on private wells come and wells can have iron in black manganese and smell and other things that people think but either way we're doing mutuel business in both all three of these type of water supplies look just a little different so we. We talked a little bit about filtration systems on the market. Maybe you could help us understand. You know we talked a little bit already about the refrigerator. Type One. What about the pitcher type ones? The BRITTA's zero or pure. You know all all of those pitcher systems assuming most of them are very similar while the one that's different is zero zero okay. So let's use the two of US. An example says you're a water will purify water. That filter is it's using I'm part of the media in there is It's an an-and caddy on media that that that attracts both negative and positively charged ions.
