I f we told you that water could help you lose weight, would you drink more of it? Bet you would! Well, it’s true! Why do you think there’s a lot of advice out there that centers around drinking at least 2 liters of water every single day?
For those of us who are not use to drinking that much on a daily basis, start adopting the habit because water is your best friend. It’s free, it has zero calories, it’s good for your body and, if you’re looking to lose weight, it can help you there too!
For instance, did you know that by adopting the habit of drinking as much water as you can in a day (2 liters at best), it can help:
- Make You Eat Less During Meals: Drinking water before your meals especially can help fill you up so you don’t feel as hungry and you end up eating much less – hence the weight loss. The less you eat the less likely you are to gain weight, so fill up on water before having your meal.
- Ensure You Don’t Overeat Out Of “Hunger”: Sometimes those hunger pangs you’re feeling are actually signs that you’re thirsty. Many of us don’t know this and we end up thinking that we’re hungry and start looking for food, causing us to indirectly overeat. The next time you’re feeling hungry before a meal, opt to go for water instead. You just may be surprised to find that your hunger pangs disappear after a glass or two.
- Keep Your Body Fueled And Hydrated: Our bodies need water to survive. Especially if you’re on the go the whole day. When you don’t drink water, you run the risk of getting dehydrated, feeling dizzy and weak. Keep your body healthy and hydrated at all times by drinking as much water as you can throughout the day.
- Keep Your Skin Looking Fresh & Youthful: You’ve heard the saying a million times – beauty begins from the inside out. And they were right. Drinking plenty of water in a day can help your skin to look fresh and youthful because it keeps your body hydrated and moisturized from the inside out. No amount of moisturizer you slather on make your skin look good on the outside if you don’t take care of it from the inside too.
Are you drinking your 2 liters of water a day or more yet?
