Water is very important. It helps in so many ways, especially when trying to lose weight. The by-product of fat metabolizing is CO2 and water, so when you break down fat you exhale some of the waste and have this extra water in your system. By drinking extra water, you can flush, literally, that fat down the toilet! Now I just find it comical that I have to go pee so often...before I leave the house, after arriving at a destination...when I get back to the house...etc...my family just jokes "dads gotta pee again..."
