Maybe it sounds impossible, but water is a very successful step you need to make if you are trying to lose weight.
Your body consists of nearly 70% water, so the plentiful hydration is more than necessary. Our body loses a great amount of water during the day, so we have to replace in properly.
Water increases our metabolism, meaning we will be able to burn calories faster. Also, water lowers the acidic levels. By consuming coffee, unhealthy foods like processed oils, canned foods, soft drinks and sodas, our body gets acidic.
This makes our body’s pH value acidic. The same damage to our body is done by the environmental pollutants that we do not control.
These toxins can be removed out of our body by drinking plenty of water. Not drinking lots of water can cause sugar cravings, headache, or fatigue all day long.
If you are physically active, you should drink water even more.
Here are some tips on how you can drink more water:
– Take a bottle of water with you. Have it everywhere you go and sip at it throughout the day.
– You can add some flavors to your water, like lemons or limes. Slice them and put them in the bottle. Also, you can add cucumber slices. It includes 96% water content and mineral balance. Cucumber can offer similar hydration levels to twice the volume of water.
Anyway, other vegetables that can hydrate you more can be added too.
– If you don’t like water, you can add herbal tea and drink it instead during the day.
