Mirkin Is Back with More Health Myths

You loyal readers know Mark (and your Bees) don’t buy into that whole “drink 8 glasses of water a day or else!” rule. While we’re big fans of drinking water, you don’t have to stress out about it. Drink when you’re thirsty. It’s a myth that by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. If that were true, think about it: dogs and cats would sure be hurting. Thirst is the body’s completely proper and natural indicator that it’s time to replenish liquids, but it doesn’t mean you’re about to keel over from dehydration.

How about water intake and dehydration issues when you’re working out? Dr. Mirkin sets us straight. By the way: eating salty foods and processed foods will interfere with your sense of thirst, so the “myth” isn’t completely off-base.

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
