Sticking to a diet and exercise program used to be a badge of accomplishment. This includes reaching the 8 glass a day recommended water consumption. Now, this is being challenged. One thing that we do know is that less food and more exercise will make a difference in a persons overall weight. But what about those stubborn areas of fat? Dr. Kim helps patients to understand that even patients who are in great shape can have stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to lose. Dr. Kim recommends liposuction. As an artist, he is able to sculpt and create a shapely more proportionate figure by carefully removing small areas of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Patients who have loose skin on the abdominal area will need an abdominoplasty combined with liposuction for the best results. A regular exercise program and proper diet will be needed to assure the best long-term results. Although the proper water consumption recommendation is being challenged, water intake is part of a balanced diet program. According to The Los Angeles Times drinking six to eight glasses of water each day is healthful, most health experts agree. But apparently not everyone is on the same page.
A general practitioner from Scotland says that health advice is “thoroughly debunked nonsense” and is propagated by bottled water companies out to make a profit. The answer isn’t cut and dry, says an article by the Mayo Clinic, and depends on your exercise level, health conditions and the heat and humidity of your environment. In general, the Institute of Medicine recommends about nine cups of beverages for women and 13 cups for men.
The Mayo Clinic offers another way to assess if you’re getting enough H2O:
“If you drink enough fluid so that you rarely feel thirsty and produce 1.5 liters (6.3 cups) or more of colorless or slightly yellow urine a day, your fluid intake is probably adequate.”
