The Importance of Water And Weight Loss

Sep 15, 2008
Water is extremely important for weight loss. Most people know that cutting back on bad calories and beginning an exercise program can aid in weight loss. While they may be able to lose weight initially, they often hit a plateau. This can occur for different reasons. The body simply gets used to a certain amount and type of exercise, stops responding. Another problem may simply be inadequate water consumption. Water does several things to aid weight loss. It helps to suppress the appetite. You feel fuller when you drink water. Other times, the body mistakes hunger for thirst. Therefore, the brain will prompt you to eat when you really need to drink water.

Water also all helps in metabolizing fat which the body has stored. Water may be one of the most important pieces in the weight-loss puzzle. It helps decrease water retention, because it stimulates the kidneys. Individuals that want to lose weight should drink one glass of water in addition to the eight glasses which are universally suggested, for every 25 pounds that they want to lose.

Water also helps you feel better. Individuals that are a dehydrated tend to forget things more easily, have trouble focusing, and have low energy. Consequently, they may not feel like working out after a hard day at work. Exercise is very important to weight-loss. If you're always too tired to work out than you will find it more difficult to lose weight.

Dehydration helps create feelings of hunger. You eat more when you're thirsty. Dehydration can also negatively affect your glucose. Your body will think you're hungry and so you eat. When you first start feeling hungry, grab a glass of water and see if that curbs your appetite. If that doesn't work, you may really be hungry. If so, go ahead and eat a healthy meal or snack. Either way, drinking a couple of glass of water before a meal, will help you eat less.

Eight to ten glass of water is normally recommended for the average person. If you will be exercising, you will want to a drink more. Drink water throughout the day so that your body is continually hydrated.

Once you begin the drinking the proper amounts of water every day you should find that it's much easier to lose weight. You will feel better and have more energy for exercise. You will be surprised at how much better you feel and how your body will better respond to activity and diet.
