There is an explanation for why every weight loss plan recommends drinking plenty of water. Staying adequately hydrated aids in weight loss. Fourteen men and women were given two cups of water each by German scientists. The subjects’ metabolism rose within ten minutes of ingestion. The average calorie burn rate was thirty percent higher within 40 minutes and remained elevated for over an hour! The increase in calorie burning is a result of you body using energy to warm the water to body temperature.
If you want to help extinguisH2Obesity, drink plenty of water.
Eight, eight-ounce, glasses (i.e., 64 ounces) a day (depending on our size, temperature, and activity level) of clean water is suggested. The average-sized person requires 2 to 3 quarts of water a day (that’s 64 to 96 ounces). A good rule to go by is to take your body weight, divide it by two, and that’s the number of ounces of water you should be drinking daily.
The most important nutrient for the human body is water. An average person can live for about forty to forty-five days without food but only three to five days without water. Approximately two-thirds of a person’s body weight is water. Our blood is 82 percent water and both our brain and muscles are 75 percent water. The major ingredient of all fluids in the body is water, including saliva, gastric juice, bile, pancreatic juices, and intestinal secretions. Water is necessary for practically every bodily function.
Water also aids in the prevention of dehydration, which can slow down your metabolism. Many people are dehydrated without realizing it. If you drink only when you feel thirsty, it is too late. You are already dehydrated. In addition, as you get older, your sense of thirst does not work properly. It is only when you start to hydrate your body that you will begin to realize how bad you felt before. Most of us are chronically dehydrated. We have to discipline ourselves to drink enough water. The key to proper hydration is that you must schedule your water intake.
