How important water is for weight loss ?

Thursday, August 18, 2016

     Today I am sharing something different other than recipes. In my weight loss journey, I have found this below information very helpful, so thought it would be helpful for my readers. So sharing with you all but inquire or do a research before you implement all these in your life. I always do so.
   Most women struggle with weight loss at some point of their life compared to men. Obesity is becoming a fast growing problem in India and Indian women are more likely to be obese than their male counterparts. There are some who follow a healthy diet, exercise regularly, do not have any other health issues but are still unable to lose weight. If you identify yourself as belonging to this category of women, then it’s time you watch your water intake. Your body requires water to burn fat and if there is an insufficient intake of water then the body metabolism is slowed down, making it impossible to lose weight. Obesity leads to reduced life expectancy and increased health problems. However, losing weight does not have to be a herculean task anymore; simply drinking water half an hour before each meal can help.
    Water regulates the body temperature, transports nutrients to cells and helps the body get rid of toxins. Apart from this, water helps you lose weight, according to the latest study made by the University of Birmingham. A group of 84 obese adults divided into 2 groups participated in a study that proved the effectiveness of water as a weight loss aid. One group was required to drink 500 ml water half an hour before breakfast, lunch and dinner every day for 12 weeks. The other group was required to avoid drinking water before each meal. All participants received advice on diet and exercise plans. Participants that drank water before each meal lost an average of 4.3 kg over a 12-week period, while the other group lost only an average of 0.8 kg. This could be because water makes you feel fuller thereby making you eat less or it may mean that water increases metabolic rate temporarily.
      Now that you realize how important water is for weight loss, your first thought would be how to chug a jug full of water down your throat. Here’s the next advice. Do not gulp a large quantity of water, instead take frequent sips throughout the day. Gulping a bottle of water in one shot is only going to dilute your digestive acids and cause a problem with digestion. Also take care not to drink iced water. Take sips of warm water or at least water that’s maintained at room temperature. Aim to drink a glass of warm water on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up in the morning. This can increase your body’s metabolic rate by at least 24% and jumpstart your weight loss journey. Apart from weight loss, adequate intake of water gives you blemish free skin. If the cells in your body are not hydrated, your skin appears dull and wrinkles are more prominent. Remember that your body can only absorb a certain amount of water each hour, the rest is eliminated. So it makes sense to drink water in sips and not gulps.
     Apart from that there are many ways to lose weight. Many supplements are available in teh market to lose weight. You can buy this supplement from leading website Healthkart, Shopclues, Amazon and more. Avail these supplement upto 40% discount by using discount coupons.
