♪ Bob and Brad ♪ ♪ the two most famous ♪ ♪ physical therapists ♪ ♪ on the internet. ♪ – Hi folks, I'm Bob
Schrupp, physical therapist. – Brad Heineck, physical therapist. – And we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet. – In our opinion, of course, Bob. – Humble opinion. Today we're gonna talk about four common, no, no,
– You're wrong. – how to avoid hungry
water, question mark. It's the number one key for weight loss, and a robust active life. All experts concur. – Absolutely, Bob. And hungry water, if you
haven't heard of that, don't worry we're gonna
explain it in detail. It's a very a fitting term that
you should be familiar with. – By the way if you're new to our channel, please take a second to subscribe to us. We provide videos on how to

We don't even know ourselves. – [Brad] This is a future video. – This is a future video. Go to Facebook, it'll also be pinned to the top of the page, the contest. Go to Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok if you want a 60 second
version of our program. And some of you, welcome to you out there, if you're listening to this on a podcast. – Yeah that's right. And this video is not gonna
be a five minute video.
This, if you really want
to know about water, and if you're drinking
what you want for water, we have to, it's gonna
be more than 10 minutes. – A lot of things to keep in mind here. – Yeah, good information, so. – A lot of controversial information. – Actually, it is. We'll clear some of it
up, and some maybe not. So keep that in mind. Bob, are we ready to go on? – Let's go, let's roll. – And we concur on this. So, now this is one
thing that we feel all, everything we have read, and
I think everyone will agree.
Doctors, nutrition gurus, weight loss gurus. They all agree that people need to have ample amount of water – Yes. – to stay healthy. If you're losing weight, you
really need to get water in to keep the system moving. Helps, you know, makes you feel
full a little bit that way, but just the system to get things moving. – There are exceptions, you know, there are people who are trying to watch their
blood pressure or whatever, you know that if they're
– Yeah but, yeah.
– on certain meds and stuff. But yeah for the average person, the average person is probably
not drinking enough water. – Exactly. – Wouldn't you say
that's about right Brad? – Right, I know my brother's a ER nurse, and everyone that comes
in that's you know, they always are dehydrated. – Aw, Brad and I have
worked in nursing homes, and that is such a common diagnosis, it's almost like a daily occurrence. – Right. So I think we can, we
kicked that horse enough. So let's go on. How much water should we drink? Let's go to the extremes, Bob. We know that if you don't drink any water for three to five days, results in death.
– You're gonna, yeah.
– On the other hand,
you can drink too much. As a matter of fact, I
found a case, a woman, she drank 1.6 gallons,
or six liters of water within a three hour time period. Within a day, she passed
away from too much water. The body cannot take it. And you mentioned someone locally that it happened to.
– Yeah, it happened to, it was a real unfortunate situation. – Oh well, of course, right. – Where a college student got sick, and they told them to drink lots of water, and he went nuts over it.
– And the sickness combined
with the water, he actually passed away from it.
– Yeah sure, yeah. So,
– I mean it was tragic. – we're gonna come up with
some good rules of thumb from the information I found out. Again, this varies on your body size, how much water you should drink a day. Like the climate, the
weather, how active you are. – Yeah, it's really hard to
give a general rule of thumb. – Right, so we're gonna
give you some ideas here. For the average person,
– Yeah, starting point anyway. – Yep. The average person, if you're just living your average day-to-day life, I think the eight times eight rule.
Eight glasses of eight ounces of water, 64 ounces a day, is a
pretty good rule of thumb. If you're-
– You can try it, and see how you feel with it. How you're doing with it. – If you're more active, one ounce per one pound of body weight. So I weigh about 175 pounds. That's a lot of water, 'cause I keep track of it.
– 175 ounces, but you are very active. You work out a lot. – In the summer that would be no problem. – That might not be a problem. – Now, in the winter, not so much. This next one, males
averaging 125 ounces a day. Females, it was kind of unusual, 91.
– Yeah, you want to take
it down another one, 91. – Right. – You know, there is another way, Brad. You can actually go ahead
and drink some water, and see how long before
you go to the bathroom. If you go to the bathroom
almost immediately, you were already, had enough water in you. – Sure. – And if you don't, you know, you actually
don't go to the bathroom for a couple hours, you still
probably need more water. – Sure, it's that homeostasis. It might vary if you have
some caffeine in your system. – Sure,
– That might, – a lot of things can play a role. – Exactly right. So Bob, now that we've
cleared all that information, We've gotta get,
– Clear as mud. – Yep, so drinking water. If it's so important to drink water, we should know what
kind of water to drink.
– Do you just go to the store and you
drink some, you know, water from the bottle out of the store, at the convenience store? Do you go to the tap?
– Right, plastic bottle. – Get it right out of the tap, or do you need to do something special? So we're gonna talk about that. Now this, these four things I
kind of did this for myself. 'Cause I got a filter at home, and I've been looking into this stuff to – Sure. – figure out what's best
for myself and my family.
And I grew up in a rural
area, we had our own well. It was about 40 feet deep. Not a very deep well, but it was in the middle of the country. There were no farms around, there was no nothing,
everybody loved our water. People would come from the city. Oh, it tastes great. And it was well water, had
a lot of minerals in it. – You didn't have to worry
about fertilizer or chemicals. – No, we did not. And I swear, we had the best water around. And that, in my mind is probably, I think most people agree. The water that filters through the earth, collects minerals from
the stone and the earth, and you get your calcium
and magnesium and all these, – Iron? – Iron, exactly right. You get that, that your
body needs to stay healthy. So that's very good, well
water, that's the best thing.
– Hard to get, though. – Now, right, because I
have a well right now, but there's like 140 acres of corn that's been there for 40 years, and every year they put in nitrogen. – And sprayin'.
– They put atrazine, and all these chemicals. And eventually, it probably
will get down into that well. – Right. – I got 130 feet well, I'm thinking, you know, it might be down there. So I started thinking,
what do I need to do? I need a filter, but a filter, a carbon filter is gonna
take out some odor, little bit of iron, but it's
not gonna do iron either. You got to get an iron filter. We put that in. We liked the iron, but it was so bad that it was turning red.
– It was too much. – Yeah, you get red hair, you know, you gotta do something. – Yeah, that was Linda's parent's house. – So I went with reverse osmosis system. Which is, takes out everything. And that's where the
hungry water term comes in.
– So if you take out everything,
the water becomes hungry. – Right, if you have distilled
water, or reverse osmosis. You have nothing in the water
but water, which is good. But what they say now, this
is a controversial subject. You drink this hungry water,
it's got nothing in it. And it's too pure, and
it can actually perform a reverse osmosis from the electrolytes in your cells.
– On your cells. And this is theory now. I've found different arguments
that no it doesn't happen, your stomach is so acidic,
it has enough things that if your diet is good and healthy, you're gonna be fine.
So I think I'm gonna hook my reverse, I took my reverse filter out actually, there's five filters. I took that one out about two weeks ago. I think I'm gonna put it back in after doing more research. That's up to you. I did put a remineralizer in the system, which is supposed to add
in minerals to the water. I don't know if it's a marketing thing, or if it really works.
I would have to do some
– I don't know if this is a good time to mention this, but like,
– Yeah. – I sweat a lot, especially in the summer. – Oh, sure. – I really, like I might get drenched like three times during the
day, cutting lawn and stuff. And I drink a lot of water of course, but then it does wash out my electrolytes. Like I start getting dizzy.
– Particularly sodium. – Yeah, sodium, yep. And the other ones, so
I do take Nuun tablets. N-U-U-N, yeah.
– N-U-U-N, yep. – And they make all the difference. When I take those, I
don't have any problems. – Sure. – But when I don't, I
like, I get dizzy, and, – Oh yeah, you need those electrolytes. Now, one thing you can do if
you're drinking distilled, or or RO water is, they make tablets you can put in specifically
for that, mineral tablets.
You can also, I've heard
people say, use honey, or, – Honey? – Yeah, yep. – Really? Interesting. – Yeah, honey or some natural syrup. – Oh. – Pure maple syrup. 'Cause you know, that's coming up from the earth.
– Oh, sure. That it has some of the same stuff. – That doesn't mean you can put
a cup (laughs) in the water. – Maple, pure maple syrup.
– Just a spoon full of sugar. – So just a little bit of those to get some minerals in your water to reverse that reverse
osmosis syndrome, if you will. Let's go to the next one. Bottled or processed water,
which we have right here. Got this at the convenience store. And a lot of people are,
this is pretty common now. The BPA, in other words, it's bisphenol. – Okay. – And the A, I'm not sure
what that stands for. But there's three bisphenol products. There's A, there's F, and there's S.
– So they're BPA, BPF, BPS. – Right, the BPA is pretty
known, popularly known, not popularly known, but
as a possible carcinogen. – So people do not want the BPA. Obviously you hear that quite often. – So what do you do? Do you drink it, or you don't drink it? So, probably not the best choice. And a lot of people will
say, absolutely not. But one thing, like this
container that I drink, I have about three or four of these.
This says it has no BPA
in it, but it's plastic. But I believe it does have BPF and BPS. But I fill this up from my
RO water in the morning, and it lasts maybe three hours. Actually, I bring two to work. So, I drink 'em up within
an hour and a half. – Sure. – But four hours is the longest
it's ever gonna be in there. And you don't have the time for the, – Oh, to absorb.
– The plastics to go into the water. – I see. – So that's a big, – Although sun would
enhance that, probably. – I don't keep it out in the sun, but. – I know, but I'm saying. – That's a good point.
– Right. – But think about this. This could have been on a shelf in a storage room for months. And then, plus if you
get it out in the sun, or it gets hot in the
summer and it warms up, that all enhances the amount of BPA, or the other chemicals
to get into the water. And that's why they call this, some people call it plastic tea. If that makes you think.
– And that's not a good tea to have.
– Yeah. So people are just
gonna be trembling after when they're drinking this.
– Yeah. – I still drink out of
these, but not so much. – I'm bad for it, 'cause I, when I, – It's convenient. – Yeah, it's at our cabin and like, we're not really supposed
to drink the water there. The city water's, not good.
And so I get plastic water,
and I leave it in my golf bag, and it heats up, and so – I gotta,
– Then you're really thirsty, so you,
– I gotta stick with these. – Now what do we got here? – Well, this is, it's, – Aluminum? – Aluminum, yeah. – Oh, is it aluminum? It's not stainless steel? – Oh, I don't know. – Well, I think they
recommend stainless steel as a a step ahead of aluminum. – Is it? Let's see here on the bottom. – He's going to read that. So that is, you go to, – Stainless steel. – Have your water in a
stainless steel or glass is what I've found to
be the most recommended. – Stainless steel. – Yep. Aluminum, I wouldn't have aluminum because it oxidizes pretty easily. And then you're gonna get
(scoffs), that's no good. So number four, municipal or tap water right from your house. It's been treated by the by
the city or whoever, you know, – The fluoride.
– They put the chlorine in there to kill the bacteria.
They put the fluoride,
your teeth from watering, or watering, from getting cavities. But then there's controversy on that. Some people say that fluoride
might be good for your teeth, but not so good for the system. 'Cause if you do take too much
of it, that can kill you too. – Wow, interesting. – I don't know what the volume is, you don't have to worry about that with your tap water by any means. But anyways, another thing I found out, what's in your tap water,
you can go to website, ewg.com, Environmental Working Group. – You sure it's dot com, it's not dot org or anything like that? – It could be, I'm
pretty sure it's dot com. I didn't write it on my notes. – Environmental Working
Group, just type that in and it'll come up.
– It'll come up.
'Cause I found it without any problem. And then you put your zip code in there. And they have done tests
on all the zip codes. You know, if this is in the United States, and I looked at the water
from the village where I live. I don't get it, because I've
lived outside the village. But it didn't look real clean. But it's acceptable to drink. The volumes of chemicals that are in there are not high enough to
worry about, so they say. – Well what's shocking,
and this has become more and more of an issue is how many prescription medications are found. – That, I was just going to bring that up.
– Yeah, a high percentage. – Yeah, there were studies done
from California to New York, and up to 52 different, you know, pharmaceuticals.
– Medications. – A trace, you know, they're talking about trace amounts.
– Sure. – It's not enough that its
probably gonna affect you. But if you drink, you know,
you got all these things. Do you feel comfortable
drinking your tap water? – Right. – Usually tap water to me, doesn't taste that good for most. You know, I lived in Lacrosse versus, you know.
But you grew up with the best
water in the world, Brad. – Well, I don't know what it comes from, but anyways, for me I'm
gonna go with my RO water, I have the remineralizer on it. I may put a little bit
of maple syrup in there just because it might taste good. It it's, you know, it's got
all that from the earth. Do you think about the water in the ground that the tree brings up? – Can't you, – And you boil out all the water, and that's all you have is that purity. – Can't you put some on your RO machine that puts it in automatically for you? – Well, I got to look into that.
I might be able to make
something like that, a drip. (laughs) Anyways, we want to joke a little bit. – You're a drip. – Yeah, but this is, you know, this is something to consider
when you're drinking water, you're drinking a lot of it.
– Trying to be healthy. And I don't know what to do, Brad. Now that you got me so confused. – Yeah, it is a can of worms, actually, when you start getting into
how important water is, the volume you need to drink. But then, what kind do you drink? You want to be healthy, you want to keep your children healthy.
– Right. – So, good luck with it.
– Good luck out there. – Yeah, if we come up with
some more concrete information, go find a good well. – And we want your comments below, get to share your opinion.
– Yeah, absolutely, 'cause there's gonna be a lot of people. It's gonna be like a diet or, you know, a nutritional thing. – Well I want to hear 'em, I want to hear both sides of it.
– Yeah, absolutely.
– We'll take a look,
so thanks for watching. – Good luck. (computer chime).
