Drink Water To Lose Weight

Startling insights about dehydration, body fat and why you must drink water to lose weight.

If you can’t lose weight than this will be some pretty interesting stuff for you.

I realize that you hear everybody talking about water and how it will affect your results.  Honestly, I get sick and tired of all of it myself because most of it just amounts to squawking.

But here’s the truth…

Drinking water is one of the single most important things you must do to get thin and exponentially increase your health.  Seriously. There is just no way around it.

Watch this video and prepare to be SHOCKED at just how much you should be drinking…

Let me ask you honestly…

… have you ever been told to drink water to lose weight?  If so, how much?

I mean, half your body weight in ounces of water each day!  (You need to try this cool 10 pounds water calorie trick!)

According to Dr. B. from the video (I explain more about him in my naturally lose weight fast article), that’s how much you should be drinking.

But here’s the issue –  The standard recommendation by experts is eight, 8 ounce glasses.  The problem is if you weigh over 130 pounds this can become inadequate.  And yet, I’d be willing to bet you don’t even drink that much!

Most of us don’t.

I just don’t think a lot of people realize the extremely negative impacts that dehydration is having on their body’s.  If you question this, then you should take a look at Dr. B’s site www.watercure.com.

Especially listen to the interview he does with Tony Robbins.

Fascinating stuff and brilliant insight into why you must drink water to lose weight.

But what I really want to drive home is the fact that…

Not Drinking Enough Water Destroys Your Metabolism.

Something I discussed on the home page of this website was a discovery made by Dr. B.

According to him, if your body lacks water than what you eat will not be utilized completely.  The reason is simple, the food (you should be eating this food) you consume needs water do digest.  It’s called the process of hydrolysis – the break down of food because of water.

Now, I realize that the term “metabolism” gets used frequently, but I find that many people don’t know exactly what it is.

Basically, metabolism (how to speed up metabolism) is the body’s breaking down of food for energy.

Every single organ in your body takes part in the metabolization process.

They all need loads of WATER!

For example…

… One of the livers primary functions is to metabolize fat. It converts fat into the energy the body uses. If you are dehydrated your liver will not function efficiently and you won’t efficiently remove the fat from your body.  If you can’t efficiently remove fat from your body, your weight loss will be a struggle!

Lack of water doesn’t just affect the burning of fat. If you don’t drink water to lose weight the removal of waste from your body will be negatively impacted.

Losing Weight Is Like Construction And Water Is The Main Tool

Have you ever visited a construction site?

There is a lot of building and a lot of waste generated as a result. It’s on the ground, in dumpsters…Everywhere!  Imagine if the waste was not continually disposed of.

When you are losing weight your body is metabolizing the stored fat (burning it off) and eliminating it from the body. During the fat burning process there is waste generated, just like that construction site.

If you don’t drink enough water it would be the same as not continually removing the dumpsters on site.

The waste will not be removed and it will begin to pile up.

What happens when it piles up?

The same thing that happens when the waste around the construction site piles up… The building process is slowed down. The ever increasing waste produces a harsh weight loss environment.

Other Reasons You Should Drink Water To Lose Weight.

Water is a natural appetite suppressant.

Studies have shown that your body does not distinguish between needing more water and needing more food. When your body is telling you that you are hungry, it may actually be trying to tell you that you are thirsty.

Another reason you should drink water to lose weight is because dehydration leads to water retention. If you do not get enough water your body will store it.

This is something I found absolutely fascinating:

Water Lowers Cholesterol.

According to Dr.B, high cholesterol levels are simply an early warning signal that your body is lacking water.  Did you know that Cholesterol is a substance similar to clay that is used by the body to fill the gaps of some cell membranes to protect them against losing crucial water content.

This means that when your body is dehydrated, your cholesterol levels rise!

Did you get that!?

Basically I could go on and on here.

Listen. It’s really quite simple.  You must drink water to lose weight.

It’s your best friend guys!

I realize you hear this so many times, but it really is the truth. I hope this message has “hit home”.

What Type Of Water Should You Drink

I’ve had a few people ask me this question and the answer is simple…

… you want to drink the purest water you can find.

Look guys.  There is an easy solution to this. I realize that many of you live in the city and only have access to “tap” water.  I don’t recommend you drink this do to high concentrations of chlorine and other chemicals  that, over time, absolutely will negatively impact your health.

Your body is over 70% water.

If that water has come from chemically laced sources, it’s only common sense that it will affect your health.

I have a BRITA filter.  Here’s the photo…

Here’s a photo of my water filter.  I recommend drinking purified
to eliminate as much chemical content as you can.  FORGIVE
the mess – I forgot to take out my pickle jar in the back by
the toaster!

Now.  A filter is certainly isn’t a perfect solution, but it’s better than not having one in my opinion.

In Conclusion

There are three main points here guys…

  • Drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day. This means that if you weigh 200 pounds, you should be drinking at least 100 ounces.
  • Yes, you must drink water to lose weight, but you also must drink it to guard against disease.  Research has shown this.
  • Use a filter to make sure your water is as pure as possible.

I hope you found this information useful.


P.S.  Here’s something SHOCKING…

… Over 70% of the people in the U.S. are overweight.  Studies show this.

The amazing thing is that research has shown that over 70% of the people are also dehydrated!  There is definitely a correlation here guys.

Bottom line,  you must drink water to lose weight.  Loads of it!
