Water: The Clear Choice When You Want to Drop Some Weight
As 2021 kicks off, many of us are making the same resolution we did last year. We want to lose weight and get in better shape. Water plays a critical role in our success at meeting those goals.
Drinking Water to Lose Weight
For those of us looking to lose some weight this year, water is the not so secret weapon. A glass before meals will help you eat less, as well as aid in digestion and boosting your metabolism speed. One study suggests drinking warm water can give you even more of a boost.
Water and Weight Loss
As you work on that New Year’s resolution, you’re probably exercising more to try to get that weight off as fast as possible. It’s easy to get dehydrated when you’re working out. Be careful that the weight you're loosing isn't just water loss. You might not realize that if you’re downing sports drinks or low-calorie sodas before, during or after your workouts. Studies show there’s no substitute for clear, calorie-free water and what it can do for your body and mind. That’s why drinking more water is so important; your organs and skin depend on it.
Yes! Drinking Water Can Help You Lose Weight
How much should you be drinking? On average, about 64 ounces a day or more if you’re exercising, working in the heat and when you just feel thirsty. (Your brain can confuse thirst and hunger!) Every sip counts so make sure you keep on track while you’re working on that healthier you.
Good luck and here’s to a healthier and happier 2021!
