Can What You Drink Help You Loose Weight? Three Quick and Easy Tips

Jul 10, 2008
If you thought that what you eat is the only thing that affects your weight, you were wrong. In fact, did you know that over 50% of your body is made up of water? A good deal of weight that people lose is often just water weight. Many people who are out there on the dieting kick believe that the answer to losing weight is to not eat as much food. However, it is more complex than that. Your body needs food to sustain itself and have energy to fight off infections, etc. The common mistake that people make when it comes to food is not that they eat too much, it's that they eat too much of the wrong kinds of foods because they make uniformed, poor food eating choices. However, did you also know that a major factor in weight gain has to do with what you are drinking?! Drinking certain beverages can actually make you lose and/or gain weight depending on what it is. This is why you may have heard a lot about juice fasting. Many people who go on juice fasts lose a significant amount of weight. However, it is not advised that you do it alone. Make sure that you are consulting with a doctor or specialist.

It seems that nearly everyone today is obsessed with losing weight. But how exactly do you get started down this path to a healthier you? It could be just as simple as pouring a glass. Here are three quick and simple liquid solutions to help you loose weight and get healthy.

Tip#1: Water...lots and lots of water. Yes, I know you have heard it before about how important drinking water is but it really does help you to loose weight, especially those tough pounds that never seem to leave. And why? It is all about the liver. Your liver's primary job it to convert fat into energy, sugar to be exact. So, what does that have to do with water? Well, your liver's secondary job is to act as a back up for your kidneys, so if your kidneys are water deprived, your liver has to pull double duty which means it is busy serving as the kidney's stand in and can not convert fat as effectively, and as we know what doesn't get converted usually ends up somewhere around your thighs or midriff.

Tip #2: Convert to Diet Sodas. Let's face it, water with pizza just doesn't quite cut it sometimes. But for those times that you do want a soda with your meal, converting to diet soda, or better yet sugar free lemonade, will shave off around 150 calories or more for every can you replace.

Tip #3: Drink Cranberry Juice. Yes, I said cranberry juice. Cranberries are loaded with organic acids that are believed to actually dissolve fat deposits. And if the taste is too bitter for you, then you can always mix it with a little sweeter juice like orange or raspberry.

So there you go, three very simple and quick ways to drink your way to a slimmer and healthier you.
