    I need more information on the study you qouted about drinking water and increasing calorie consumption. As a RN I would like to read that study to incorporate it into my teaching for patients. Can you email me the study name and where published? Thanks

    Hi Shawn!!

    As always, LOVE LOVE your content and research. We’ve met before (hope you remember me from your NYC book signing) As mentioned, your book “Sleep Smarter” was the secret sauce to my productivity into finally giving birth to YSuperstars! Since then, I have also become a certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant and have combined my SKA’s and started my YouTube Channel to help Youth Developers shine and take care of themselves. Healthy you, healthy children! I’ll love to add value to #1 tip with my latest video, “Water Facts & Hacks” (Which by the way, has many things that I’ve learn from your podcast!!)

    **I am currently in new research mode about zipping vs. chugging** Specifically for those who are constantly running to the bathroom every 5-10 minutes. The learning never stops! I would love to get some of your resources. Life-long learner cheers!

    Hi, I’m from the UK and this was so interesting and well explained – thank you. I do think caution should be applied in regard to water consumption, where the 500ml water study has been cited as a weight loss tool. Our kidneys are unable to deal with 800ml or more per hour and levels in excess of this can cause serious intoxication and possible fatal consequences. While water intake is clearly an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle, I do think people should be made aware of the dangers of drinking too much water, in the context of studies such as these. A good indicater is the colour of your urine (should be clear) and to drink when your thirsty. Thanks again!
