Water- How 8 Glasses a day…keeps the fat away

Posted on January 5, 2011

As busy as our days get, it is easy to forget how important it is to stay properly hydrated.  It is a very important element that is required for a proper daily diet.

Water is so important to your body that 40% – 60% of your bodyweight is water.  Now before you get any crazy ideas like dropping alot of weight by reducing your water consider the following facts:

Dehydration places a huge burden on your heart by thickening your blood.  Your body will also have a harder time regulating its internal heat.  Since the cells in your body are mostly water, if you lose water, your cells get smaller and will not be able to carry on their intended functions, this includes metabolism of your food.

Although you may take it for granted, water may be the only true “magic potion” for weight loss and permanent weight control.

WATER SUPPRESSES THE APPETITE NATURALLY AND HELPS THE BODY METABOLIZE STORED FAT

An increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.  Your kidneys cannot function properly without enough water.  When they cannot do their work, the excess is dumped into the liver for processing.  One of the major functions of the liver is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy.  But if the liver is busy with “extra work”, it cannot operate at full throttle.

DRINKING WATER IS THE BEST TREATMENT FOR FLUID RETENTION

When the body gets less water than it needs it goes into survival mode and will save as much water as possible.  Give your body what it needs and it will let go of it’s stored water.

WATER HELPS TO MAINTAIN PROPER MUSCLE TONE

Also helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows weight loss.  Water plumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy, and resilient.

WATER HELPS RID THE BODY OF WASTE

During weight loss, the body has alot more waste to rid of-all that metabolized fat must be shed.  Adequate water helps flush out the waste.

Get out there and drink your water!
