365 Ways #235–Eat your water Posted on October 29, 2010, 0 Comments

#235--There's a Chinese proverb which says "Drink your food and eat your water." The first part means that we should chew our food until it's liquid since digestion really does begin in the mouth. The latter part means we shouldn't just guzzle what we drink. We should swirl it around in our mouths before swallowing. This instills the water with Chi. Chi, like breath, is life force. Along with water it is essential for our vitality. So I advise my clients to graze on water throughout the day, making sure they're drinking half their body weight in pounds in ounces of water each day.
