A couple of really neat things happen when you drink water. Drinking water will boost your metabolism. Your metabolism is what turns the food you eat and drink into the energy it needs to function. Drinking water also acts an appetite suppressant.

Drinking water will also cleanse your body of waste and toxins. Toxins are a normal part of our bodies intake of food and oxygen. Water flushes toxins and waste from the body and at the same time transports nutrients to where they are needed. Without water what is in your colon may get stuck and lead to constipation. Drinking water is essential in detoxifying the body.

Water First Food Second

Filling your body with water before eating will act as an appetite suppressant. At each meal before eating any food, drink a tall glass of water. You will start to feel full with the water and reduce the amount of food you put in your body. The water will also keep your colon lubricated and help the body process food better.

Replace Sugar Drinks With Water

Do you know how many calories are in water? It’s not a trick question…..ZERO. If your drinking high calorie, insane sugar sodas, do your body a favor and STOP! Those toxic drinks taste good because they have a pile of sugar in them. Same goes for “energy drinks”, they are also high in calories and sugar. Water has 0 calories, tastes good, and your body craves it.

Water & Exercise

If your trying to lose weight, you really do need to be doing some exercise daily. Plenty of water has to be part of your exercise routine. Keeping your joints lubricated and muscles free of cramps, water is a must. At least an hour before exercising, I will intentionally drink more water to hydrate my body in advance. If your exercising at a good pace and not sweating, this may be a sign of dehydration. Take that indicator seriously and get water.

Water & Weight Loss

I want to stress how important drinking water is to your weight loss. It’s an essential piece that you can’t leave out. When your really thirsty, maybe after a good workout, nothing will satisfy you more than clean, fresh, cool water. It’s just a fact.

Now that we established that water is essential for our bodies and losing weight, how much water should we be drinking? Most nutritional experts would say you should be drinking at a minimum of 64 ounces daily. I tend to drink half my body weight in ounces per day. If I weigh 180 pounds, I am typically drinking 90 ounces of water each day. That may go about a little because of exercising.

To put my body in a fat burning, weight loss mode, I am feeding my body of water that it needs to work efficiently for me to drop these unwanted pounds. Think about it like this, water is helping you to get rid of excess fat. It’s the new water diet plan.
