What Would Happen If You Replaced All Drinks With Water? Diet Pop?
Hi folks I’m Bob Schrupp physical therapist, Brad Heineck physical therapit, together we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet in our opinion of course Bob What would happen Brad if you replaced all your drinks with water? Boy, when we say that about you, that’s saying a lot because there’s no longer any beer or well I’d be drinking water. That’s what would happen I’d probably lose a little weight Bob, the reason I was interested in this Brad I saw a study a while back about diet sodas and the fact that they saw an increased incidence of strokes and Dementia with it and I didn’t give much thought to it Cuz there’s a lot of studies that come out to scare you but Dr. Zorba who was on Public Radio, Dr. Zorba pastor, he brought it up And he said it gave him pause so I I thought we’d discuss, if it’s gonna make him pause a little, we’ll pause along with him because You know so I thought was a good combination, we will talk about diet sodas And we’ll also talk about water, so by the way if you are new to our channel. Surprised you on that one Why you did, if you’re new to our Channel, please take a second to subscribe to us. We provide videos on how to stay healthy fit, painfree and we Upload everyday also, please take a second to go over to Facebook and like us because Brad and I as children It’s a sad story were not liked and we’re trying to turn things around so, why Bob? Alright, I don’t know why Brad so let’s talk about diet sodas first so they did a study they sent a questionnaire to 4,000 people who are over age 45, and they follow them over a number of years and they ask him what they ate, what they drank, how they exercised, all these things and After a time over a hundred of those people had strokes and eighty of them had dementia What they found is the people that drank diet soda Were three times more likely to get the stroke or get the dementia. I’m assuming on a regular basis Yeah, and you know they didn’t go into details or at least I didn’t see the details on to how much they were drinking I mean
I think we were having this discussion before the video even is that you know Moderation is always the key. I’ll have like one or two a week I can’t be perfect. I just drink the kind with the sugar in it myself And you know what they found, which is interesting Brad good that you brought that point up That you drink one with sugar, they found despite the fact that we’ve been drinking diet soda as a society We are getting fatter and one of the theories is that The diet soda triggers your sweet receptors, so it stimulates your appetite so even though you’re drinking diet soda You feel like you want to eat more of everything else Oh sure, It’s got that double-edged sword to it Because you know I don’t drink soda that much But if I do I prefer the taste of the sugar but even in it, it’s too sweet It’s not like when you’re a kid. It’s like you could just devour that but as an adult It’s more of a treat and it’s too sweet and it tastes good for the first little bit But the last part it’s like oh, I’m sure you and I probably grew up the same. I mean you know growing up It was a real treat to have a pop, right. I mean go over to Grandma’s Get half a can or something, everybody talked to has almost the same experience when they’re our age So, but let’s talk about water so Brad there was a a well-known blogger his name is Chris Bailey, and he replaced all his drinks with water and This is what he found. I think he did some research too, I’m hoping these things are backed up by research I haven’t seen the research myself so when he quotes things you know he had this whole article I hope they’re accurate but normally they recommend that you want to eat Eat, drink 8-10 glasses of water a day and so what I thought we’d do Brad for each one that’s positive We’ll take a swig of water, okay, so all right number one its an appetite suppressor And I think you find that if you drink a lot of water you don’t feel like eating as much I never found that but it might be true all right well And you know Obviously, I mean you see people who are trying to lose weight that they they often carry the water bottle around I think it does help. I’ve heard that. I just I don’t know very well Could be ture, all right it’s also supposed to increase your metabolic rate of a healthy man or woman by 30% So they said like 1.5 liters of water could help burn 50 calories, which is not a lot But it’s going the right way instead of the wrong way so there you go. Okay, it’s supposed to help your brain work more efficiently and Because it helps eliminate toxins and the free radicals in the system, so there you go Put her down, get the free radicals out of there Good thing we’re not taking shots of something because we’d start slurring our words And we can’t speak the way it is, if we were in Wisconsin we would almost have to, that’s right All right, the next one I have found to be true And without going into too much detail, but it does help with digestion and constipation And the other thing is you know people think like when you have diarrhea That they’re getting too much fluid, a lot of times they’re not getting enough fluids, it dehydrates you, But also just the way things form It’s actually better to drink more water if you have diarrhea and constipation, so we’re both going to be hitting the bathroom. Yeah, here’s to diarrhea Okay number five drinking water decreases risks of diseases high blood pressure, bladder conditions, and even bowel cancer which makes sense with the bowel cancer because if you go more often you’re gonna actually have less chance of chancer Supposed to help decrease headaches, not sure. And I think that’s true because if you’ve ever gotten dehydrated after drinking too much That’s often what causes the headaches the dehydration And that’s why you wake up in the morning a lot of times with a hangover, not that I would know much about that right and you often have a headache Right so your body’s gotta get hydrated again Are you guys really being compelled now to drink more water? I really don’t think this is an argument that anybody’s gonna disagree with, exactly I was just surprised at the amount of things that it really does help Was there anything about that stuff about what’s in there that might be harmful? No and that’s a really good discussion to be having I hope over time they do look at that because You know some of these other drinks now are becoming real popular like we talked about that Ice drink And you know we’re all drinking some of that and and it’s got an artificial sweetener in it too, which one is it that’s causing the problem, You know where this one has that aspartame Is that it? I don’t know which one is the issue? I don’t know if it has anything to do with vision or not but Some of the stuff, you wouldn’t be able to read that would you know, I have a hard time, but yeah I’m looking for the ingredients in here carbonated water and caramel color aspartame phosphoric acid potassium benzoate To protect taste, can I go back, so a healthy heart. That’s the next one, five glasses a day decreases the risk of heart attack Increase the volume of blood Improves blood circulation, sure here’s to the heart We might be able to fix that broken heart We’ll put that into the list of ingredients, This one, too I think is very much true. It improves your skin. improves your wrinkly situation I mean if you’re dehydrated all the time They used to say you could even tell by the skin But I don’t that’s necessarily true or not. I remember doctors used to pinch you and Be able to tell, I’ve seen them do it, but I don’t know that they can do that or not Let’s get on number eight. It’s definitely gonna save you money I mean because you can a lot of these places now like my wife at work what they have is a water station where you just fill your water bottle Yeah, Cheers It boosts your mood, you feel better, I’m feeling better right now and Number 10, that’s the last one Brad it’s natural it helps It’s just a natural thing and the other thing I said it can help with hangovers too, so we got to finish on that note, oh no I’ve tried But you know one thing I do want to say is have you heard did they say about drinking it out of the plastic bottles Yeah, that’s another point. You know especially the plastic can kind of bleach into the water right? Right Which especially over time if it’s like an a heated car or something like that? I know there’s a specific Chemical and term and everything for that, but the plastic there’s people who are really purists, I have some friends who won’t drink out of plastic water. You know it has to be aluminum or glass Or stainless steel, I think it’s a good idea The only thing we were talking about is, I I looked at one of these units, that carbonate water You know I mean give it some carbonation, it didn’t rank very well as far as how it works and And I think you know just taking Regular water and adding like I said a lemon or something to give it a little bit of a zing Yeah, exactly all right remember Brad and I can fix just about anything except the broken heart But we’re thinking now, maybe this water, this is another step in the right direction, so all right, here we go Thanks for watching, take care
