Can You Lose Weight With Water?

Mar 26, 2008
You may be well aware that our bodies are mostly water. They are trapped inside the cells in our bodies. However, the water within our bodies will usually be lost though mechanisms such as sweating.

As a result, we will need to drink water so that we can make sure that our bodies will not be dehydrated. Of course we will also be able to keep our bodies cool by drinking water. Water will also help in the digestion process.

As a matter of fact, it is usually recommended that we should drink water about 2 liters everyday. This is in fact about the amount of water we will lose from sweating and urination. If we do not replenish enough water, we will just be dehydrated. This will also lead to problems in the functions of our bodies. This is the reason why you should never cut down the amount of water you drink even if you are on diet.

Our metabolism also requires water in order to function probably. The metabolic rate will decrease if we do not have enough water in our body. This means that we will burn the calories or fat a lot slower. This will lead to failure in losing weight.

As discussed, water plays an essential role in our digestion process. If we do not drink enough water, you will probably get constipation. This will render problems to our digestion system, especially the intestines.

If our bodies cannot digest the food efficiently, we may need to eat more food since we do not get the energy we need. You may probably be able to sense that this will ruin your weight loss plan. You have to bear in mind that, if our body gets dehydrated, we may get a fake signal of being hungry, therefore we will eat more food than we really need.

Water can also make use feel full a lot easier. If we drink some water before our meals, we will feel full even if we eat less than normal. This is because water fills the space in the stomach. A lot of dieting experts confirm that this is one of the most effective ways to make use feel full. And we will be able to lose weight a lot easier since we will tend to eat less.

At this point you should know that it is important for you to drink a lot of water if you are on diet. However, you have to remember that you should never drink the 2 liters all at once. This will not help and most of the 2 liters will be wasted!
