英国女记者Sarah Smith 讲述自己在4周喝水计划后带来的神奇变化:

You might think I'd have little in common with a camel, but we do share one useful skill: both of us can go for a very long time without water.


Usually I start my day with a cup of tea, then I might have a glass of water with my lunch and one with dinner - that's about a litre of liquid in 24 hours. It feels like plenty, but apparently it's not nearly enough.


After years of suffering headaches and poor digestion I spoke to a neurologist about my regular headaches and a nutritionist about my poor digestion, and both told me I should be drinking up to three litres of liquid a day for my body to function at its best.


I decided to conduct an experiment. What would happen if I drank the recommended amount every day for a month?


The photograph of me taken the day I started this trial demonstrates perfectly - and rather frighteningly - what a lack of hydration does to a face.


I am 42, but have to admit I look more like 52 in this picture, which is shocking. There are dark shadows under and around my eyes, which make me look exhausted, a profusion of wrinkles and strange reddish blotches, and my skin lacks any lustre. It looks dead.


Even my lips look shrivelled. This is all classic evidence of poor hydration, apparently. Every system and function in our body depends on water.


It flushes toxins from the vital organs, carries nutrients to cells, provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues, and eliminates waste.


Not drinking enough means all these functions become impaired. So I decided to see how I would look and feel if I drank three litres of water every day for 28 days. The results were astonishing.


1. Week One Weight: 8st 7lb Waist: 28in

第一周 体重:53.97公斤 腰围:28英寸

Three litres of water sounds like an awful lot. I visit my local GP to be sure there can be no adverse health implications to upping my water intake so dramatically. He is very encouraging. I'm enjoying lots of cups of tea. For years I've been doing ten minutes of yoga every morning straight after I get up, but I've been feeling stiffer over the past six months. Yet since I started drinking more water my flexibility has improved.


2. Week Two Weight: 8st 6lb Waist: 28in

第二周 体重:53.52公斤 腰围:28英寸

My complexion is improving and my skin tone is more even. I still have wrinkles under my eyes, but they look less crepey and shadowy than before. The blotches on my face are diminishing, and the shadows around my eyes are less pronounced.


3. Week Three Weight: 8st 6lb Waist: 27.5in

第三周 体重:53.07公斤 腰围:27.5英寸

The dark rings and wrinkles under my eyes have virtually disappeared, and my skin looks plumper and more nourished. I've noticed I've stopped rubbing my eyes when I wake up in the morning. They used to be dry and full of sleep, but not now. All this extra water must be keeping them moist. I have to take a long train journey and I realise afterwards how productive I felt and how easy I found it to concentrate, rather than having my customary snooze.


4.Week Four Weight: 8st 5lb (lost another 1lb) Waist: 27in (another half an inch)

第四周 体重: 腰围:27英寸

I genuinely can't believe the difference in my face. I look like a different woman. My skin is almost as dewy as it was when I was a child.I feel fitter, leaner and healthier, and my husband and friends tell me I look ten years younger. Who would not want to try something which gets such incredible results?
