Weight loss – without dieting?
Did you know that when you feel hungry, you might actually be THIRSTY!
According to one study, 37% of Americans’ thirst mechanism is so weak, they consistently mistake thirst for hunger.
What if each time you felt like going for your favorite snack, you reached for a glass of water instead?
Consider this – drinking more water is a key factor in burning more fat!
1. Drinking pure, clean water is a very effective natural appetite suppressant.
2. Low water intake (dehydration) will increase fat deposits.
3. Hydration (increased water intake) will reduce fat deposits
Most importantly, lack of proper hydration leads to less fat being converted into usable energy. More usable energy means more movement, more oxygen and greater vitality.
If you aren’t drinking enough water, kidney function will decrease and the liver will have work overtime. One of your liver’s primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy. When the liver has extra work to do it can’t metabolize as much fat, so more fat is stored.
Once your body is sufficiently hydrated to metabolize stored fat, water then helps you eliminate the acid waste and toxins that accumulate along with fat deposits. Staying hydrated is extremely important to ensure that toxins are eliminated through sweat, urine and bowel movements.
How much to water to drink? A good rule of thumb is to drink “1/2 your weight in ounces”.
Say you weigh 130 lbs. Your goal is to drink 65 ounces, or approximately 2 quarts per day minimum. More if you workout, live in a hot/dry environment, spend time in the sun or have excess fat to flush out.
If you are chronically dehydrated, you’ll be urinating a lot at first. That’s OK. You are flushing out toxins and getting your kidneys and bladder back to their natural, healthy state.
When you’re hydrating with clean, anti-oxidant rich, micro-clustered alkaline water, you can say good-bye to constipation and that draggy, sluggish feeling for good!
Water makes up more of our bodies than any other component. Staying hydrated is a mandatory foundation to health. Contact the Author, or browse our Merchant Directory to find local holistic merchants in your area.
