How many of us have been on diet after diet, with each providing its own set of "dos and don'ts." Whether it's gluten-free, low-carb, low-fat or calorie counting, the diet community seems to agree on one thing, and that's water consumption? Have you ever heard of a diet that limits water consumption or discourages it? Never! Every diet book on the market says the same thing – drink lots of water throughout the day. I can't help but ask: is this a proven statistic for weight loss, or is it just something that sounds good?

Doctors always emphasize the importance of drinking enough water, but few patients understand why. Is it to flush out toxins from the system? Assist in weight loss? Help relieve common health problems? There are plenty of articles out there extolling the benefits of drinking water, many of which make claims without sufficient evidence; and then there are the real reasons to drink water.
