Your Stomach Isn’t a Trash Can

Standard

I heard this analogy a couple of weeks ago when I was reading Lisa Wolfe’s book on circuit training. (Analyzing exercise programs is one of my all-time FAV things to do!)

In her book, Wolfe mentioned in order to keep the stomach and body healthy, we need to keep water flowing through it. She said to think of your stomach as a milk jug, you wouldn’t rinse the milk jug out with soda or milk, but instead use water. I think this is a great concept for people struggling to drink enough water each day. (If you regularly get cramps in your muscles – especially during exercise, more than likely, you’re dehydrated.) For more information, check out this article from the Mayo Clinic: Water: How Much Should You Drink Every Day.

Do not use your stomach as a trash can.

Thanks for stopping 😀
