Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Loss – Water Can Ease Overeating

Not everyone who overeats is depressed. Large amounts of food can also be eaten when a person is happy or might be looking forward to an upcoming event. Food can be an emotional therapist for some and helps in both times of ups and downs. This can be a hard cycle to break but what is even harder for some is acknowledging they are an overeater: it takes courage to admit this type of behavior is happening. For every person who is an overeater or has a different kind of eating disorder, it is okay to admit to yourself you have a problem. This type of problem must be addressed though as it can be detrimental to health if left.

One misconception that needs dispelling to overeaters is by drinking water, or too much water is it will cause them to put on more weight. The perceived “weight” put on by drinking water, known as fluid retention, only happens when a person is unhealthy, and their condition causes large amounts of water to build up in the circulatory system, body tissues or cavities. If this is happening to you when you drink water, then please see your doctor as soon as possible as it could be a sign of something more serious.

But for most people, drinking plenty of water is excellent for good health. Fat deposits will only arise if you deprive your body of the amount of water it needs. So, ensuring you drink enough water for your body weight will reduce the chances of this happening.

What is enough water? Drinking half your body weight in pounds – but in ounces. So if your weight is 80 lbs, then you need to drink around 40 ounces of water a day. Your body is made up of 65% water and water helps to…

transport nutrients,
keep your bowel healthy,
lubricate your joints,
boosts your brain to function correctly,
keeps your skin healthy,
purifies organs, and
allows nerves to communicate better with each other.
And a deficiency of water can cause headaches, joint pain, depression and constipation to name but a few serious health problems.
So by paying attention to how much water you are drinking each day, you will help lessen your chances of overeating. A simple way to ensure you drink enough water over the course of the day is to pay particular attention at meal times. As some people mistake thirst for hunger, ensure you have a glass of water about 30 minutes before your meal. Doing this will not only help your body reach sufficient hydration levels but will also help fill your stomach and aid in your brain registering when your stomach is full; limiting overeating.

Even if you are not a fan of plain old water, add a dash of fresh lemon or lime juice, or drink herbal teas that are free of caffeine as they will contribute to your total water intake for the day.

Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.

Stud Spacing and Wall Framing

Remodeling and building homes over the years I have seen all sorts of stud spacing measurements in bearing and non-bearing walls.

How far should we space a framing stud in a bearing wall?

Most plans will give you this information. If you have a structural shear wall the plans will tell you what size of lumber to use at the plywood breaks. The normal spacing on a bearing wall will be 16 inches on center unless otherwise noted on the building plans. This is the most common spacing for studs in a wall.

How far can we space framing studs in a nonbearing wall?

I have seen studs spaced as far as 24 inches on center in a nonbearing wall. Over the years looking at the building code books I have found this to be acceptable for most framing applications. Do not confuse a nonbearing walls with a structural shear walls because there is no weight sitting on the shear wall.

Interior structural shear walls will require 16 inch on center spacing or less depending on the structural engineer and your local building department.

What are the disadvantages of spacing the studs 24 inches on center?

Using half-inch drywall with 24 inch on center stud spacing can give the wall a week or spongy feel. I have been in houses that have 24 inch on center’s stud spacing and can actually push the wall and see it move. Using 5/8 drywall will solve this problem in your walls.

What are the advantages of spacing the studs 24 inches on center?

The only advantage in spacing the studs farther apart is the fact you will be able to save a few dollars on the overall cost of building or remodeling your house. I personally do not recommend this process because the savings is minuscule compared to the overall cost of building the entire house.

If you look on a measuring tape between 19 and 20 inches you will usually find a little diamond. This little diamond is another measurement for laying out eight-foot walls or floors. So instead of using 16 inch on center layout you can use 19 1/4 for stud spacing. This will save you an additional stud in your wall or floor joist every 8 feet.
