How does drinking "water" help us "lose weight"?

So why is "water" so important to the body and "optimal health"???

Well . . . science says drinking "ample" amounts of water throughout the day can help with "weight loss" . . . suppressing the appetite . . . and boosting our metabolism . . .

And staying "hydrated" . . . can even make "exercising easier".

But . . . . did you know . . . the body "WON"T" lose "FAT" until it loses its "extra" water weight first???

Well it's true . . .

So let's better understand . . .

The average adult body is made up of about 60% "water".

And in that 60% . . . if you break it down even more . . .

Our brain and heart are made up of 73% water, the lungs are about 83%, our skin 64%, muscles and kidneys 79% and our bones 31% water.

So you can clearly see . . . we need to have "AMPLE WATER" in our body for optimal health . . .

But . . . it's the "extra" water that's unhealthy and makes us feel uncomfortable.

So how much "water weight" can we lose???

Well . . . that depends on a few factors . . . like your body size and composition.

For example . . . an obese person could lose 10 pounds of "water weight" in just 2 days . . . whereas, a thin person may only lose 1 pound in that same 2 days.

Even "peeing" helps to lose "water weight" . . . the average 24 hour "urine loss" is about 1.8 to 4.4 pounds

So moral to this story . . . we "must" lose our "extra water weight" BEFORE the body will start to lose its "fat" weight.


And why does this work???

Well . . . drinking "more" water actually helps to "flush out" the "extra" water weight in our "CELLS".

And another element to this factor would be . . .

"Increasing" the amount of "protein" we consume everyday. This helps to keep the body functioning properly.

And with that . . . we must also "decrease" our sodium intake, our "complex" carbohydrate intake and our "bad" simple carbohydrates like sugar, pasta and breads.

And "focus" on eating whole, non-processed foods to accomplish our mission of losing our "extra water weight" and pounds.

So tomorrow we'll continue with a way to jump start the weight loss process.
