    DRINK UP!!!! Read this post its to your advantage!!!

    How many of you drink at least 2 litres of water daily?
    Alot of you would rather pull out a can of coke rather than a glass of water. BERY BERY BAD!!!!
    A can of coke has 11 TEASPOONS of sugar in it and caffein ko tu choor hee doo!
    How would you know if you're de-hydrated?
    Well here are some tell tell signs.
    1. your urine is a very dark yellow.
    2. press the skin on the back of your hand together. If it sticks together and pulls away after a few seconds, your dehydrated.
    3. The tip of your nose is dry.
    4. Your skin especially your face is dry, elbows and knees.

    This is really serious. Not only is your bladder prone to infection but just imagine, when we wake up in the morning, we all like to take a shower to cleanse our bodies. We feel fresh and invigorated. well having at least 2 glasses of water first thing in the morning is like giving the inside of your body a shower.
    Its even more important to drink up as
    Our Pakistani khaney are enriched with ghee and oils, and we just love out mitaahees. So we need to drink water to dilute the fat and sugars. Did you know that eating a bag of crips dehydrates the body to the extent that 5 glasses of water will compansate the loss because of the salts in the crips. In the hot weathers its even more important as we pespire and lose moisture through sweat.

    Drinking water will make your skin feel soft and radiant, otherwise skin becomes dry and fine lines and wrinkes emerge at a much quicker pace. So you age much quicker.... people who have skins problems like acne or rashes would need to drink water as it cleanses the skin naturally.

    Start slowly. After reading this get up and have a glass now. Increase your intake slowly, from 2 glasses to three to four. Then one day you'll always be carrying a 2 L bottle around and filling it (like me).
    I know it will mean going to the loo a lot more, but then your cleaning the inside and you flush out toxic wastes more frequently.
    Its GREAT...... so drink UP!!!!!

    I am sure all will appreciate your concerns. Let dem tips coming in and if we get enough of these, we will move dem to their own forum. You can gauge the popularity by looking at the number of visits to your column. I would suggest a max one article per week. And choose topics that start with

    Health Tip: blah blah ...

    In the meantime, please use General forum only for these kind of posts.

                      Thanks ever so much for the advice.

                      Fizzy drinks are generally unhealthy and for those of us who often quench their thirst by such means, it can be harmful whether it's noticeable or not, particularly in the long term.

                      If you're a sports person then unhealthy drinking can also have a negative affect on performance and stamina.

                      Indeed, water is a true blessing from Allaah.

                      kindest regards,

                            Hey, that is so true. I mean some years back, my skin was getting really dry so I asked my doctor what could I do to make it better other than use moistureizers and he said the exact same things. Cut back on carbonated drinks and drink tons and tons of water. Btw, I do like your tips, they are very helpful so thanx a bunch



                              you guys are talking about drinking water!!
                              ....I wasted all this time waiting for this thread to load.... and you are talking water..
