Eat Smart – Tip #5


Bottoms Up girls and boys – but sorry, not of your favourite alcoholic beverage (that’s a topic for another day). WATER…H20 and lots of it! I know, I know – we’ve heard it all before, but do you know WHY it’s so important (aside from the obvious dehydration issue)? Here are a few good reasons why you should drink more water.

  1. Drinking Water is the #1 WEIGHT LOSS SECRET… has no calories, sugars or fats!
  2.  It’s a great way to quench your thirst anytime/anywhere – without adding centimetres to your waistline.
  3. Many people misread the signs of thirst for hunger. So if you’re feeling “snacky” go for the H20 before the goodies to go. It will fill that empty spot and you won’t tend to binge on naughty foods.
  4. Water is the ONLY thing that will eliminate wastes from your body….and when I say wastes, I don’t just mean the obvious kind – think toxins and other nasties as well, all which if not eliminated from your body always seem to make their way to your waistline, hips and thighs!


How Much/How Often? The general rule of thumb is about 1-1.5 Ltrs of water for every 30Kg of bodyweight – so if you weigh 60Kg you should be downing 2 – 2.5 Ltrs a day.

My husband, Graham and I live in Newcastle (Australia), with our fur child, Axel – and our tribe of adult children are all off living their own best lives. I guess you could say I was a “late bloomer” – ie. it wasn’t until my 40’s that I discovered my love for all things fitness, nutrition, health and wellness. It started in 2004 when my eyes were opened to the fitness/sport of Pole Dancing just coming to Australia. We wanted IN, and by 2005 my daughter Bailey and I had opened our first pole studio – Pol-arise Fitness & Dance (which is still operating today under Bailey’s management). It wasn’t long before we also expanded into Aerial Yoga, Barre, Pilates, Suspension Fitness and Yoga, and I became a qualified Nutrition, Health and Life Coach (amongst other things). DEFY GRAVITY FITNESS brings together over 15 years of knowledge, and fusing it with Functional and Suspension fitness to create my EXCLUSIVE new Bungee and Suspension based fitness classes.

  1. Having read this I thought it was reaally informative.

    I appreciate you spending some tie and effort to put this content together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
