Shocking Results: When a Woman Drinks Gallon Of Water Every Day For Four Weeks

Sarah Smith, a 42 year old mother in the UK decided to document and photograph of herself to experiment what happens if she drank 3 liters of water everyday for an entire month. She wanted to see if water is the solution for her poor indigestion and regular headaches.

Here’s the result. End of week one, she improved bowl function, no more breakouts and headaches and she also improved her issues with joint stiffness. End of week two, she noticed a slight improvement in her skin, visibly flatter stomach, no more cellulite and another week without headache. End of week three, her dark circles and eye wrinkles had disappeared and her skin has become plumper.

She also noticed a behavioral change. She had started to intake less food and felt hunger less frequently. In the end of the final week, she noticed all the dark shadows around her eyes have disappeared as well as the blotches. No more regular headaches. She felt leaner, fitter and healthier just by changing the intake amount of water.

Could Berkeley’s soda tax be a model for tackling obesity across America?

We all know what happened in the election few days ago. Berkeley city in California definitely made history in this election to be the first city in the nation to impose a tax on sugary drinks.

 

Berkely Vs. Big Soda advocacy group worked hard and lobbied for this victory as a part of their Healthy Child Initiative campaign. There will be a $0.01 per ounce tax on all beverages sweetened with sugar ( except alcohol, dairy products and drinks for medical purposes). The revenue of this tax will support the city’s health and health education programs.

This indeed shows how America is ready to fight for a healthier society and let’s hope there will be many cities and states that will follow Berkeley’s lead to a healthier America.
