5 Day Hydration Challenge

How to "charge your batteries" and get more energy

Welcome!

Let the journey begin...

To get more energy, you have to start by charging your batteries...

This is a 2 step process and it starts with hydration... the next step will complete the "charge"...

Imagine a battery that's fully charged...

... and as you start using up the energy, the battery cell begins to "dry" like a plum turning into a prune...

That’s what happens to the cells of your body when you become dehydrated…

Not only do cells begin to shrivel up, you begin to lose that “charge” that gives you energy…

Getting more energy starts with staying hydrated…

The keyword here is “staying” hydrated…

There’s one time when everyone becomes dehydrated… that’s overnight when you sleep…

The difference between those who are getting more energy and those who still feel tired all the time starts with creating a habit of “staying” hydrated…

To “stay” hydrated you must start your day by drinking water…

Most people don’t drink much water to begin with… much less do they drink water first thing upon waking up…

That’s why we start every program with the 5 day hydration challenge…

The purpose of this challenge is to create a habit to hydrate first thing in the morning AND stay hydrated throughout the day

It doesn’t work the same if you wait until later in the day to hydrate…

If you want to get more energy following our method, hydration needs to be done first thing in the morning… and you must make a conscious effort to stay hydrated throughout the day...

The key is to hydrate consistently… 5 days is to get you “warmed up”…

It’s the first step on this journey…

I’m going to walk you through a series of improvements…

Every time you improve you’ll start to notice little to no changes at first…

It’s like getting a long train going…

It seems hard at first and like you’re barely making any progress…

… but if you do this consistently, over time you start to develop momentum…

When you hit momentum, then it’s hard to stop…

That’s when your energy starts to kick in…

Then I’m going to teach you how to “turn up the knob” to get more energy…

Small simple tweaks to your lifestyle can make a big difference…

Hydration is a skill…

That’s why consistency is important, because you have to practice hydration…

There is no formula that tells you exactly how much water you need to drink…

There are many factors that you need to take into account…

#1 what are your current levels of hydration

#2 what is your diet like

#3 what are your activity levels like

#4 height

#5 weight

#6 etc.

The goal with this exercise is for you to learn how your body feels when it’s hydrated and when it’s dehydrated…

Most people have been dehydrated for so long, they’ve forgotten what it feels like to be hydrated…

Some people take 4-6 weeks to hydrate because they’re so dehydrated…

You may not be as dehydrated as I was, but when I was dehydrated I had a lot of gas, bloating and constipation…

Some of the ways I can gauge how hydrated I am are

  • Skin goes from dry & rough to smooth and moisturized
  • Scalp looks and feels healthier
  • Stronger hair and nails
  • Increased alertness
  • more energy

To get started I read a book called Your Body’s Many Cries For Water by F Batmanghelidj, M.D. where he said you should drink a minimum of 2 quarts (liters) a day…

… again, I’m just sharing what I did… you need to figure out what works for you… 2 quarts a day is a good starting point… but that’s not where it ends…

Do you want a little bit of energy or a lot of energy?

… because in this program you get what you put into it…

If you only do a little bit, you’ll get a little out…

If you put in more effort and do more, you’ll get a lot more out of this…

So for me personally, I drink closer to a gallon of water a day…

Now, I’m not saying “drink more water”…

I’m saying learn to hydrate…

Start slow and learn to build up…

Make small progressions…

There’s a lot to learn so be patient with yourself…

You don’t have to implement everything I share at once…

The goal isn’t perfection… it’s progress…

There’s 3 improvements you’re going to learn about…

#1 Cleanliness

#2 Minerals

#3 Hardness/alkalinity

The third one is advanced stuff so we’ll leave that for later on…

Let’s start with the basics…

Remember, you are here…

Here’s the two most important things I do when it comes to water…

#1 I make sure that my water is clean

#2 I make sure that my water has minerals…

The most ideal situation is to find a good source of water from a natural spring that has been tested for cleanliness and minerals…

As I write this, I live in Phoenix, AZ, so we don’t have a natural spring in the city… but I drive up north to Sedona about 2.5 hours and I can get good water that’s clean, mineralized and with a pH of ~8…

This is the most ideal situation… to get water from a good natural source…

This is not always possible, so I do make my own water…

Again… I’m sharing what I do…

… and most importantly… why…

… because I give a f*ck about my gut flora…

… and because it gives me a ton of energy, good sleep and it makes it easier to stay lean and toned…

This is the “brewery” equipment I have at the Beer Diet Project kitchen…

To get clean water I use a water steam distiller

A second option (not as good, but pretty good) would be a reverse osmosis system (wether at home or many grocery stores offer this option)…

I don’t have any filter recommendations as they are not nearly as efficient as using reverse osmosis or a water distiller…

Also, do not use distilled water from the store sold in plastic jugs… distilled water is very powerful and it makes plastic residue to leach into water more likely so that’s not a good option…

When I make my own distilled water I only use glass to store…

Next, keep in mind that reverse osmosis and distilling water removes all minerals from water… water without minerals doesn’t hydrate you…

That’s why I mineralize my water using

#1 Ionic magnesium

#2 SOLE salt

What is SOLE salt?

SOLE is pink Himalayan salt crystals dissolved in water… these salt crystals have 82+ minerals that your body needs for hydration and more…

Not all pink Himalayan salt has a good level of minerals and processing affects how clean it is…

That’s why I use unprocessed pink Himalayan salt crystals which are big and unprocessed…

I soak these crystals in water until it saturates and becomes salt water (see picture below…)

That salt water is what I call SOLE salt…

I’m not a doctor so I can’t tell you how much to use… and it depends on the factors mentioned above (diet, lifestyle, etc.)…

I personally add about 2mL of ionic magnesium and 4mL of SOLE salt to 1 quart of water… but it depends…

That’s what I use to stay hydrated…

If I want to “turn the knob up” and get more energy I do other tweaks which I’m going to be sharing as we make progress through this course…

We're starting with the 2 most basic, but very important factors that affect your energy levels, hydration and improving sleep... 

The third factor only works when the first 2 are in place... that's why you can't skip steps one and two... when you follow this process in order, when you get to step three you'll see why this is a favorite energy booster for many people…

To start this journey and complete the 30 day Energy Jumpstart, you must do minimum 5 days of STAYING hydrated from the moment you wake up all the way until evening…

You don’t want to drink much water before going to bed because you don’t want to be waking up at night to go pee…

I try to get all of my water in between the moment I wake up until an hour before dinner some times sooner…

I don’t drink much water after dinner… but then again, if I’m thirsty, I listen to my body…

It’s not about what I do… it’s about learning to be intuitive with your body…

That’s why this is a skill…

That’s why there’s 3 main pillars to this program

#1 Learn
#2 Study
#3 Practice

Repetition is key…

Proper hydration with minerals is the first skill you’ll need to learn, study and master to be able to complete this journey…

To grow probiotics you need to be well hydrated…

To get more energy, you need to be well hydrated…

To complete this step you need to start your 5 day hydration challenge...

Here's the recipe I use to stay hydrated throughout the day

Aqua Vita Splash Ale

#1 a source of clean water
#2 Ionic magnesium
#3 SOLE salt crystals (large)

It’s mineralized water and it’s the beginning of the journey...
