Water and Dieting: H2O Uh-Oh!

Diet Tip #15:

Drinking three glasses of water before each and every meal will definitely help you lose weight... mostly because you will burn a lot of calories running to the bathroom. Right now, I barely have enough time to finish any of my meals.

Can drinking lots of water really help ThisWeighOfLife?

Yes -and no. If you’re already well hydrated, more water probably won’t make much difference. But if you are even a little dehydrated, more water will help.

How Water Boosts Metabolism

Water is involved in all cellular processes in your body, so when you are dehydrated, they are less efficient.

Are You Hungry or Thirsty?

It's hard for your body to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. So when you feel hungry, you might be dehydrated. Drink water instead of eating snacks.

Digestive Health Benefits of Water

Getting enough water helps you regulate how much you eat and digest it properly, too.

How Much Water Do You Need?

It depends on your size and weight, and also on your activity level and where you live.

How can you add more water into your day?

Try these tips:

  • Carry a sports bottle with you and fill it up regularly.

  • Keep a glass of water in your work space.

  • Keep a glass of water next to your bed.

  • Switch one soda or one coffee for a glass of water.

  • Drink small amounts of water all day. Six glasses at one time isn’t good for you!
