Water in, Kilos out

One of the biggest mistakes that those on this and other diet plans make, is not drinking enough water.

Everyone knows that water is good for overall health, but in this article we provide the reasons why water is absolutely compulsory for weight loss.

1. At molecular level, our body is 70-85% water

If we study a single human cell we will see that it is a molecular structure consisting of 70-85% water. Water is the primary component of blood. Water transports oxygen through the body and is the most essential nutrient for all bodily functions.

2. Water affects fat metabolism in the liver

Where weight loss is concerned, the most important organ in the body is definitely the liver. This is the organ in which fat metabolism occurs. The key function of the liver is to remove toxins and metabolic waste from the body. And the one nutrient that is responsible for this removal of toxins is water.

Think of your liver as one big filter for your body. If you do not drink enough water, your liver will not do the optimum fat burning and removal, so you will not lose weight fast enough.

3. Water is essential for proper digestion

You need a functioning digestive system to effectively burn fat. A healthy digestive system is one that is well hydrated. Water is needed to cleanse the digestive tract and remove metabolic waste.

4. The connection between water and hormonal balances

It is important to understand that your hormones largely control weight loss and that hormonal balances are influenced by food choices and hydration. If you do not drink enough water, you endanger your organ functionality.

This then causes a domino effect that negatively affects hormonal balances that control fat oxidation.s one big filter for your body. If you do not drink enough water, your liver will not do the optimum fat burning and removal, so you will not lose weight fast enough.

5. The link between oxygen and fat oxidation

Oxygen is one of the components of water. For fat oxidation / fat burning to occur, oxygen must be involved. The better your body is able to transport oxygen to your cells, the more successful you will be to burn fat. And the best way to transport oxygen to your body cells is through water.

From the above list, it is clear that the role of water in the weight loss process is very deeply ensconced in every level of metabolic action and all internal processes.

Although 8 glasses of water per day are prescribed for overall health, it is not enough to lose weight. The more body mass you have, the more water you need to drink.

Here are some ways to ensure that you drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day:

  • Drink a glass of water before each meal. It will also help you feel fuller on the days when your diet bowl feels a bit small.
  • Try to drink “Flat Tummy Water” or “Apple Cinnamon Water” every day. It will help to burn fat and also add a better taste for your water.
  • Drink a glass of water on an empty stomach in the morning and evening before going to bed. This will help your body’s metabolism and you can then subtract 2 glasses from your daily water intake.
  • Try drinking lukewarm water with lemon when you get tired of the taste of plain water.
