Let’s Start Drinking!

Good morning everyone!

Have you had your first drink of the day yet?  I have.  No, not that kind of drink. We’re talking water!  Approximately 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. So let’s get the part everyone is interested in.  How does drinking more water help me lose weight?

75% of our body, 80% of our brain and 90% of our blood is composed of water.

Drinking water aids in weight loss by:

  • Keeping your metabolism up.  Even mild dehydration can slow down your metabolism.
  • Keeps you feeling full.  Drinking water makes you full and contributes to the absorption of minerals in your body.  
  • Detoxifying your body.  Water is the key element in the removal of waste from your body.
So how much water are we talking about?  An easy rule of thumb is 1/2 your body weight in ounces.  For example: A 150 pound person would drink 75 ounces which comes to just over 9 – 8 ounce glasses.  That is optimal.  Most of us aren’t even drinking half of that, so drink up!

Your goal this week should be to drink more!  Water that is.:)

Have a beautiful day!
