How to Lose Weight with Water

Written by Health Indoors

Want to know how to lose weight with water? There are so many people on a diet wanting to drop their weight. Diets tend to focus on food – what not to eat, when not to eat and ideally not eating at all for long stretches of time.

Imagine if you could lose weight without such drastic measures – cut down on food of course and eat fresh food, but no radical changes in diet and still lose the weight.

That’s perfectly possible when adding water to your daily diet!

1. Drink Water Before Meals

Studies show that just the simple act of drinking a glass of water 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch and supper can lead to weight loss as it suppresses the appetite.

2. You’re not Hungry, You’re Thirsty

Drinking water throughout the day to stay properly hydrated will mean your body knows when it is truly hungry and ready to eat a meal.

When we are dehydrated because it did not get enough pure water, our body will sends a message out as a thirst signal. This is often which confused and heard as hunger pangs.

How to lose weight with water? Have a good long drink of water and the hinger pangs will go away – they were actually a cry for water.

So you can see how you might reach for a snack when really all you need is water that will refresh and revive you, just like a plant when it needs watering will very quickly revive. This is another reason a water diet contributes rapidly to weight loss.

3. Focus on adding more water, not taking stuff away all the time.

Switching one or two high calorie drinks for water immediately lessens calorific intake each day.

Drinking enough water is essential for burning off fat from food and drink, as well as stored fat.

As you drink more water your body will naturally start to function better and you will naturally move towards healthy diet choices.

The water diet is the best diet

You will soon find you have increased flexibility and more energy to get out and exercise.

You will sleep better and good sleep is key to maintaining healthy weight.

Plus you can reach your watery target each day by eating more soups, fresh fruit and vegetables that are more watery.

It’s no coincidence that we talk about feeling well. We are 70% water and water comes from the well. So simple and so true – try the water diet and you will see.

Would it surprise you to learn that 89% of people in the UK are Dehydrated?
