Okay may sound boring but water is actually one of the best things you can put in your body and it’s free. Let me explain why!
Water has zero calories so for people trying to lose weight, hello! water should be your new best friend. It is recommended you drink at least eight 8oz glasses of water per day BUT if your working out too you lose a lot more water than normal through sweat, this is also true just in the warm weather! For those losing water to sweating you should be drinking more like 11-12 glasses of water per day.
Water helps to speed up your metabolism, curb you appetite, flush out toxins, and help increase weight loss. To use water to help increase weight loss you should take your weight and divide it in half—you need to drink that much water during the day to help support weight loss. My dad did the 5yrs ago and lost 15lbs without doing anything else (he had a significant amt of weight to lose). Remembering to drink water is half the battle to bringing a premeasured large bottle of water (or jug) and either pouring it into small bottles or drinking it from that if you don’t mind helps. OR you could always just pack for the day the amount of water bottles you will need to drink.
Drinking water before eating also helps to curb your appetite. Durinking it while eating makes you feel fuller faster so consume the right portion amount.
Water also has many more amazing benefits like helping your skin, helping you stay energized, burn more fat and regulate body temperature.
Hopefully this post has at the very least encouraged you to drink more water. ESPECIALLY if your trying to lose weight and get in shape!
