You have probably heard that drinking more water can hep you lose weight, but we cannot stress this enough as it really does work! Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanse your body of waste and acts as an appetite suppressant. Also, drinking more water can help your body to stop retaining water, which will help you drop any extra kilos. If you struggle with water retention, and are looking for a powerful and natural diuretic, try NPL ProLifestyle Water Cuts.
There are a few tricks you can follow to ensure you are drinking enough water to remain hydrated and keep your weight down.
- Drink before you eat
Water is an appetite suppressant and drinking a glass before your meals will help you feel fuller, reducing the amount of food that you eat. Drinking water before just a meal can cause you to eat 27 000 fewer calories per year, which means great weight loss over time!
- Replace calorie-filled drinks with water
Instead of drinking fizzy drinks and juices that are filled with sugar and calories, rather have a glass of water. You can even add a scoop of Amino Burn into your bottle of water and sip this throughout the day if you struggle to have water on its own, and want an extra boost of energy.
- Drink your water cold
Drinking cold water can help boost your metabolism because your body works a little harder to warm up the water, which means you are burning more calories without even trying!
- Get your workout in
Staying hydrated during your workout is essential to prevent muscle cramps and keep your joints lubricated. It is also a natural response to drink water during and after we train because we sweat.
- Make sure you drink enough water
If you really want the water you drink to help you lose weight, you should be drinking between 2 and 3 litres of water a day. If you are training it is essential that you are drinking more water as you sweat during your workouts.Weird, but true… A good way to check if you are getting enough water in is to check the toilet after you have gone to the bathroom. Regular bowel movements mean you are hydrated, and your urine should be clear or a very light champagne colour.
