We all know that water can provide our bodies with a whole host of benefits, but is losing weight one of them?
Well, I’m here to tell you that losing weight is one of the benefits drinking water can bring to your body. And here’s why.
Have you already eaten yet still feel the need to snack? Well, water can help suppress your appetite. How you may ask? Well, when you’re dehydrated, your body might confuse that for hunger. So instead of grabbing for that pack of Oreos, try drinking a glass of water first. Once you take that glass of water, it will pass through your system quickly and stretch out your stomach, signaling to your body that you are full. And there goes your extra snacking!
Drinking water is also necessary to burn that stubborn fat. That’s because, without drinking water, your body won’t be able to properly metabolize the fat that you have stored in carbohydrates. This process is called lipolysis, and to keep the long story short, the first step to activate this process is to drink water. So don’t forget that water bottle when you go on that morning run.
Speaking of exercising, yes, you should switch out that Gatorade for a bottle of water. I know it doesn’t taste as good as Gatorade, but try to spice it up by including fruits! Anyways, when you don’t drink water, the muscle cells become dehydrated, which means they have a harder time building muscle up. This means that most of the workouts will become less effective.
Water also increases the amount of energy you have, which is great because that will motivate you to want to try intense workouts. The more power you have, the more calories you will burn. Not only that, but it also helps your joints and connective tissues to move correctly during your workouts.
“Wanna lose 1200 Calories a month? Drink a liter of ice water a day. You burn the energy just raising the water to body temp.”-Neil deGrasse Tyson
