Drink Water, Lose Weight

By Gerard Francis

Water is very much underrated as a dieting aid. But not only does it help the bodys metabolism, it helps to keep everything flowing smoothly in the body.

Water helps to keep the joints lubricated, and this is especially important when doing exercise. Drink plenty water both during, and after, exercising.

Water also helps the body to move fiber out, and it adds bulk so that you feel "fuller" . This is a great way to curb the appetite. On average, we require a minimum of 64 ounces (1.9L) daily for this.

And it is helps the body in the process of absorbing the right nutrients into the body tissues, as we progress through the day.

If we want to keep up our energy levels throughout the day, water is vitally important. The consumption of water should be evenly spread through the day. A recommended level is 6 ounces (170 ml) every hour (except when exercising).

It is best to drink the water slowly, instead of consuming great quantities all at once. And depending on the water temperature, the body reacts differently.

To drop those 10 pounds as quickly as possible, drinking the water at room temperature will mean that the body will absorb it better. However, ice water is better at burning calories. So to lose weight ,the best advice is, alternate between both temperatures.

Its easy to see why this would be true. The body burns up energy heating up the ice water, while tepid water prevents the body from retaining tissue fluid, keeping weight down. Both temperatures work well.

When the body is dehydrated, it automatically starts to store water in tissues, to protect itself. But this can add 5 pounds weight!

Drinking water always help to stifle the hunger pangs. This is especially true when you observe the routine of alternating between ice water and tepid, and using filtered water only. Its the easiest type for the body to assimilate.

If you want to lose 10 pounds, remember that drinking more water will boost the metabolism of the body. The more water you drink, the lower will your fat deposits be.

This is because the liver will not have to work so hard metabolizing fat. The liver is the main organ used in fat burning by the body, and requires lots of pure water.

Thats why its so important to keep hydrated during exercise. After all that strenuous activity, when youre sweating and your heart is pounding, the body beeds to flush out the sludge created.

After exercise, you should drink 16-24 ounces (470 to 700 ml). This helps greatly with the cleaning process, giving an easy exit for all the toxins. The more water you can make available to your liver, the better it can function.

Water is the main tool used by our bodies in the process of detoxification, and it enables the liver to sort between nutrients and toxins. It will increase your energy levels, and decrease your waistline.

So make a decision to increase your water intake, now that you know how much it helps you to lose weight. Your body will benefit - and you will lose 10 pounds faster! - 17273
