Thinking about it, you could come to ask yourself, does water really help lose weight? If I drink water will it help me lose weight fast?
The short answer is yes!
Maybe water does not directly help you lose weight like exercise, or dieting, or fasting does but it does help you not only manage your weight but also reduce it without you even knowing.
How does it do that?
Drink Water Before You Eat
Drinking water before you eat can help you lose weight quietly because when you drink water before a meal, you have automatically filled a part of your stomach with the water which leaves little space for your food to come in and so you get filled up faster and eat less food in the process.
Ditch the Juice
Drop every form of sugary drinks and substitute it for water. If you think water is boring, try adding some lemon or lime in it for seasoning.
But wait a minute, have you ever really settled down to drink a glass of water – like, really settle down – especially when you need it.
Especially after a tedious workout sesh (soccer), I love the feeling of drinking a nice cold glass (or 3) of water. It gives me joy.
When you feel tired and worn out, drink a glass of cold water, it’s like heaven.
Sidenote Story: A man saw another man drinking a glass of milk and he made the following comment, “It was like pouring God into God“. Think about that for a moment.
…and I digress…
And because drinking more water helps lubricate your joints, you can work out more in the gym. This is just another simple way drinking water helps you lose weight.
How Much Water Should You Drink in a Day
Because we are constantly losing water from our body, it is ideal you keep your body hydrated by drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.
I drink at least 3 liters (maybe that’s why I go to the bathroom a lot).
But I think it depends on the person.
Ideally, for a normal person, you should drink at least 2 liters.
But for someone who uses his/her body a lot, like exercising and other physical activities (especially if you are in the sun all day long), you should drink more than 2 or 3 liters in a day.
Drink as much as is necessary for your body to be well hydrated.
This is because due to the many physical activities you do, your body gets rid of water faster and you get dehydrated quicker.
This means you should drink more water to keep you hydrated all day long.
Don’t Wait Till You’re Thirsty
The thing is that you don’t start to feel thirsty till you have lost at least 2 percent of the water in your body – that is the moment your body begins to suffer a little.
So don’t wait until you start to feel thirsty to drink water.
I personally don’t use any “Drink Water App” because I always make sure there is a bottle of water near me at all times.
Water Helps Burn Calories…..
This is mainly because when you drink water, your body has to work on whatever it is that is entering the body. This helps burn more calories.
And seeing that water has no calories in it and can essentially be categorized as a Zero-Fat (weight loss “food”), it is the ideal nutrient to put in your body since it will help you lose weight if you drink and… you will die if you don’t. 🙂
Conclusion: Do You Think You Should Drink Water More?
Water obviously is an awesome natural resource that has been given to use by Mother Nature.
Can you imagine if we never had water?
Maybe our species will be extinct by now or evolution would have made up adapt to become something else. (I seriously doubt if that thing we become will be pleasant to the eye… I’m thinking about cracked lips, dried out skins and seriously pale faces). Ich!
