We outchea getting Water Wasted Sis!!

But before you start Day 8’s Assignment, make sure you have completed Day 7’s Diva Assignment (click here).


Welcome to what we like to call “EDUCATION NATION” here in Fit, Fyne & Fabulous. Today’s Education is all about ..
“Why water is so important for your gut.”

Water helps regulate your body temperature, lubricate your joints and muscles, flush waste from your cells, cleanse your internal organs (INCLUDING YOUR COLON), balance your fluids, and eliminate toxins from your bloodstream.

In short, water is essential for life, without it, you would DIE!

Since hydration is a major part of the health equation it should be a major part of your life, if you’re really serious about cleansing your body of toxins! In today’s lesson we will address 3 areas as it relates to water
1) How much should you drink;
2) When should you drink it (it matters for gut health) and
3) What type of water to drink.

Let’s get into it divas!


You may have received advice to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces in water everyday; and, if you’re an active member of Fit, Fyne & Fabulous, you know that we recommend drinking 1 gallon of water everyday!  I’m sure you’ve also heard and read reports of the dangers of drinking too much water as well.  So, what’s the right thing to do?  Of course, if you are on medication of any kind or if you have any diseases or viruses always check with your doctor and do what the doctor says diva! My advice NEVER EVER overrides the the guy or gal in the white coat.  However, my advice was and always will be to drink your gallon as many days as you can!  Because truth be told, life is super busy and active, and you won’t be able to get that gallon in everyday!! I’ve gotten close to achieving a gallon everyday for a week straight once, but it’s really hard to do it if you don’t have a plan, right?  I depend on my Gallon Girl Diva Bottle to get my gallon in for the motivation and because I know once I drink the entire container, I am done, done done!

If you are working out, have a slow gut, and especially if you’ve eaten badly for weeks or months, PLEASE MAKE IT YOUR BUSINESS TO ATTAIN THAT GALLON to help PUUUUUSH, that horrible stool out of your body. Don’t give it any more time than necessary to live and exist in your belly!!!  Drink water, like it’s your job booo!


I encourage you to begin drinking water as soon as your feet hit the ground in the morning. Let warm lemon water be the first thing your digestive tract handles in the morning. Don’t just squeeze a lemon, also add the zest of the lemon to the water, that’s where a lot more of the nutrients are sis!  

Make sure you are drinking water BEFORE your meals, instead of drinking DURING your meals. You may be wondering why do that??  Here’s why, drinking liquid while you eat tends to dilute digestive juices and acids, which slows down your digestion considerably! Drink water BEFORE or AFTER & NOT DURING your meal.” Click To Tweet

When food takes too long to go through your system, it can cause digestive problems. In addition, drinking water prior to your meal curbs your appetite and dulls your hunger pains.  Water also  prepares, opens, and lubricates the digestive tract, getting your body primed and ready for the food to come!!

Worried that you won’t be able to swallow your food without drinking?  Aim for 20 to 30 chews before swallowing. Ideally, your food should be nearly liquid before your swallow, did you know that?  So swallowing it without water shouldn’t be a problem.  Begin drinking your water again, 30 minutes after you’ve eaten.


OMG, there are so many different types of water right? Purified, Distilled, Alkaline, Hydrogen, you name it they have it. But let’s be honest though diva… the truth is that even the healthiest type of water can only ever have minor health benefits. Hydrogen water and any other type of water on this list will not be able to repair an unhealthy diet or lifestyle. The biggest health benefits from hydration come from drinking water itself regardless of what type of water it is. The truth is that any type of water is good for you so long as it is clean and free of impurities AND BUBBLES! stay away from that seltzer water sis!

    @CoachTwy Grace based weight loss takes the guilt and hopelessness out of the equation. Do your best everyday, when you slip, get right back on track. I had to learn that,

  • Lynette says:

    I am up to about 80 ounces of water a day. I drink 28 ounces before I leave the house in the morning. 32 ounces while I’m at work and 20 when I get home. I’m trying to figure out where to fit that other 28. Next week I’ll challenge myself.

    Grace based helps me stay the course when I break down and eat that one Madeleine cookie that I live so much. I don’t give up on myself. I just go t eat the Se lbs one and I drink some water and move on. I don’t have to be perfect. Just focused and committed

    I forgot to tag you. Also I think I ordered a gallon water bottle. Can you check on that for me?

  • Valerie McKenzey says:

    I have been drinking 96 ounces a day, some days I fall short especially if I have to go out of the house on errands. I don’t want to use public restrooms. I do aim for a gallon on Water Wasted Wednesday.

    Grace based weight loss allows me to be positive even when I don’t meet my daily goals. @coachtwy

  • Anne Edwards says:

    I drink about 60 oz a day in water some days I get more in. It really just depends.

    Grace based weight loss allows me to forgive myself and make adjustments as necessary.

  • Jackie says:

    I drink at least 90 ounces most days. This has been a practice for many years. I have cut back on my coffee with cream and after 3 days I am feeling really good. When I cut back on my coffee with creamers it seems like my craving for chocolates also went away

  • Christine Burton says:

    Hi! I was drinking a gallon of water a day when I got my bottle. I lost 26 pounds by drinking and following my meal plans. A friend told me said girl you are drinking too much water. I googled as a diabetic and asked how much water and it said 26-26 ounces per day. I’m leaning y’all. I missed all the videos and messages when live but I do go back. I no that I don’t show interest or committed in my sista but I’m on the battle field in a sight of my own way not because it’s the right way but because of finishing up my doctoral . Trust me I haven’t forgotten about my self care. I’m really learning how to obtain the message and all the good stuff that you all are posting.

    • Mona Dixon says:

      @coachtwy Great morning. This water lesson is a great reminder for me. I have been associated with other weight loss programs in the past and as a medical professional teaching my clients to know the importance of drinking 8 glasses of water a day for health and survival. Now drinking a gallon a day I did know was good for weight loss. It is a challenge, but this program has taught me been committed is very important. So I’m committed to increasing my water intake everyday from now on. But I did learn something. That Seltzer ( carbonated) water we should stay away from. Now that was new to me. I would like to know more why cause that was my go to non-calorie drink.

  • Varelle Green says:

    @coacTwy and@Tami Farr Smith learning about the need for water is extremely important.

  • Kim Walker-Lawrence says:

    H20 is very important for the body. It’s the thing I have in the AM. I have several water bottles, but find it easier to drink from the bottle it comes in. Thanks for the reminder coach!

  • Christine Burton says:

    yesss! Water is very i Important for the body. I thought i mentioned when I first got my water bottle I was faithful in drinking a gallon a day. I lost 26 pounds I told my friend about how much weight I had lost, she told me that I not suppose to drink that much water a day. But I found out she did not know what she was talking about. water is good for the body

  • Winona Thompson says:

    The 3 water facts are important to remember. I willl work on increasing my water intake. I have bladder concerns so if I am home all day I will increase the amount. When I have to go out on errands, I monitor my intake. I prefer not to use public restrooms. The Bible speaks of water as a symbol of purity and wisdom,, it allows the body to function, embody its true essence and heal. I am thankful for water, the symbol of life.

  • Petra White says:

    @coachtwy Thanks for the 3 points about water. It is truly an essential part of our daily intake. Water is essential for everything in our body. Thanks for the reminder to not drink water during or right after a meal as it disrupts the digestion process.
