He strict ion o f liquids ia of no uae whatever. If you cut down on li quid* ia ? few days you will lose pounds rapidly. However, your weight will go right back up a* som as your thirst causes you to return to your normal intake of i water. Water ia essential to life. You ca|i go without food for weeks, but you die of thirst .within a few jlays. Our bodies are seventy per cent water. If you do not drink enough li quid, your body will extract and retain the water you must hava from the "solid" food* you eat. This will interfere with elimina tion and other important body processes. Remember cutting down on li quid! causes a certain loss of wa ter?not fat. In fact many doeton ad viae an increased amount at li quids during ? reducing diet. JAVmr RESOLUTION Senator JaviU (R.-N.
