Weight Loss Essentials: Drink Lots of Water

Posted on November 16, 2009

Many people do not drink enough water.  It is often possible to think that you are hungry when you are actually thirsty.

Water is crucial as it is a key factor in almost every function and reaction of your body.  If you drink enough water, your body will burn stored fat for energy.  As an added bonus, if the water is cold your body will burn fat by trying to warm it up.  Neat huh!  I consume far more water than the recommended 8 glasses or 64 ounces.  I keep a water bottle with me at most times to drink on throughout the day.  Before a rigorous workout, I would recommend you drinking at least 32 ounces of water to get ahead of the water loss from the workout.  Also, if your urine is not clear, this is a sign that you may be dehydrating.

Water will also help to curb your appetite.  If you drink two glasses 15 minutes prior to eating, it will fill your stomach and cause you to eat less.
