Weight loss plans often include reducing calorie intake, implementing exercise programs and even taking supplements to spring board you to losing unwanted fat; however, there is another important facet to obtaining a healthy body weight. Drinking the right kind of water is a key factor to achieve optimal health and body weight. The highly ionized water product known as Kangen™ “restores your body to a more alkaline state, which optimizes health,” as well as “helps to enhance the process of acid elimination, which causes many to automatically experience weight loss,” according to the Enagic Corporation, manufacturers of the Kangen™ water system.
Kangen water is made by the in home enagic unit that can be purchased through an official Kangen™ Representative. There are several products ranging in price from around $1200 to $4500. And though that sounds like a large amount to pay for a water system, the company claims its value far outweighs any cost, considering the health and beauty benefits it brings the whole family. Additionally, the company offers payment plans for which you can apply.
Many of the distributors will also give you water from their systems to trial until you can purchase one. I’m grateful for the supply of Kangen™ water that my good friend Janet Keller has given me for several months now. She is a Molecular Hydration Specialist and can give you information on the Enagic products and the water (see the references below for a link to her site). I plan to purchase my own unit when the budget allows.
The Weight Loss Plan
Read the manufacturer’s instructions for installing the Enagic water system to your kitchen water source. Install as directed to your cold water supply. Push the “Kangen™” button to prepare drinking water at the optimal Ph. level of 8.5 or above, as recommended by Japanese scientists at Shiga University.
Weigh yourself and record the number in the journal for a starting point reference. Drink one glass upon rising the first day you begin with the Kangen™ water. Hydrate your digestive system by drinking one glass 30 to 40 minutes before your midday meal. Consume one glass between lunch and one between lunch and dinner.
Drink one glass 30 to 40 minutes before your evening meal. Write down your meal and water times for the day, as well as record how you feel physically.
Read your journal entries the following day and try to stick to this schedule for the duration of your weight loss program. Keep your consumption of all food drinks consistent, especially your servings of Kangen™ water.
Tips and Warnings
“Consume half of your body weight in ounces of Kangen™ water daily,” suggests Molecular Hydration Specialist, Janet Keller. If you feel bloated or sluggish, cut down your intake by one to two glasses. Drink all water on an empty stomach for best results. Adhering to a low fat diet and doable fitness plan will increase your chances to lose weight with Kangen™ water. Do not use Kangen™ water to take medication, as it may cause some pill types to enter the bloodstream too quickly. Always consult your health care provider before changing your diet, fitness routine or supplement consumption.
