Water for losing fat – a simple weight loss trick
Hey, it’s Chad from FITera and today I wantto talk to you about water and why it is absolutely critical to not only good health, but long-termeffective fat loss as well… and then I want to give you a really simple trick you cando to make sure you’re drinking enough water.
Every physiological process that takes placein your body, including burning fat, depends on water.
For example, your liver needs waterto convert stored fat to energy.
And if your kidneys are water-deprived, your liver hasto do the kidneys’ work all on its own, lowering its ability to help you burn fat.
So if you’re not drinking enough water, you’re setting yourself up to store fat.
Water is also a natural appetite suppressant,so if you’re low on water, you may overeat to compensate.
Your brain does not know howto differentiate between hunger and thirst.
If you think you’re hungry, your body maybe sending signs that you’re thirsty.
So any time you think you’re hungry, drinka glass or two of water first.
If it’s thirst, your hunger will go away.
Now, The National Academy of Sports medicinerecommends 3 quarts, or 96 ounces per day, and an additional 8 ounces for every 25 lbsyou carry above your ideal weight.
If you wait to drink water until you are thirsty,you will already be partially dehydrated.
So it’s important to make drinking watera habit and set reminders to keep yourself drinking throughout the day!And so here’s the simple trick I want to show you.
This water bottle here contains16 oz of water and so I need to drink about 5 of these throughout the day, which can bepretty tough to remember.
So, what I suggest is putting 5 rubber bands here onyour water bottle each day… and each time you finish one of these, take it off and putit on your wrist or desk drawer or wherever… or if you still have a tough time remembering,you can put all 5 of them on your wrist to start each day, which you’ll likely noticeeven more – and then as you finish each one, put it on the water bottle until you’vefinished all 5 and they’re all off your wrist and on the water bottle.
So that’sit – super quick and easy and doesn’t cost hardly anything, but will make a bigimpact on your success.
I have clients that would eat well, workout consistently, andhad a really hard time losing weight… until they started drinking a lot more water – about96 oz.
a day – and not long after, started to make some really excited changes.
