Our body is made up of more than half water. We need to cleanse and regenerate all our organs and cells. It is best to drink freely one hour before or two to three hours after any given meal, but to drink during meal is not a healthy habit.
It may sound incredible but water is quiet possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. Although most of take it for granted, water may be the only true ‘magic potion’ which help for permanent weight loss.
Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
If you have a constant problem with retention, excess salt maybe to blame. Your body will tolerate sodium only in a certain concentration .The more salt you eat the more water your system retains to dilute it.
But getting rid of not needed salt is easy – just drink more water. As it’s forced through the kidneys, it takes away excess sodium.
Every living cell requires water just as it does nutrients and oxygen. Water regulates all bodily functions and is necessary for removal of waste especially from the lymphatic which acts as cell lever.
The over weight person needs more water than an ordinary person. Large people have large metabolism loads. Since we water is the key to fat metabolism, so an over weight person need more water.
Water helps to get rid of body waste. During weight loss, the body has lot of waste to get rid of- all the metabolism fat must be shed. Again adequate water helps flush out the waste.
Water maintains proper muscle tone by giving muscle their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration.
Drinking water is essential for weight loss.
When the body get enough of water it function optimally, its fluids are perfectly balanced, keeping us in perfect shape and healthy.
