Why Drink WATER?






WOW  Fact - Drinking water can help you lose weight. This increases the rate at which our body breaks down FAT...
Drinking water is one of the easiest efforts you can incorporate into your weight loss or weight maintenance plan.


Think about it: unlike saying no to eating that cake at work or going to kickboxing or spinning class once or twice a week, making sure you are drinking enough water requires little to no will power.






There’s no excuse for not drinking enough water, and if you’re having trouble finding a way to fit your recommended 8 glasses a day in to your schedule it’s an easy fix.


Water helps maintain muscle tone by assisting muscles in their ability to contract, and it lubricates your joints. Water flushes toxins from your body’s system, including those produced during exercise. Proper hydration can help reduce muscle and joint soreness/injury when exercising.
Did you know that often when you feel hungry, you’re really thirsty? Our mind tends to confuse hunger and thirst.

Water is great because it fills us up and keeps us from overeating. Many diet and health books recommend drinking a glass of water before going to social events, like cocktail parties and sporting events, because doing so will stop you from over-eating the unlimited unhealthy snack foods likely to be there. In essence, drinking water buys you time- time to assess how hungry you are and to make better food choices.
Dehydration is your body’s enemy. It slows bodily functions and metabolism. As a matter of fact, your metabolism will slow to conserve energy when you haven’t had enough water to drink, as your organs can’t and won’t function as efficiently.
Drinking ice cold water first thing in the morning is an easy way to speed up your metabolism. Right when you wake up, drink a glass or two of cold water. Your body will have to warm up the water entering your system, which means increasing your metabolism in the process.
The benefits of drinking water :-
  1. Helps lose weight
  2. Healthy skin / a radiant complexion / bright, clear eyes
  3. Fights infection
  4. Get rid of body toxins
  5. Healthy heart
  6. Prevent joint pains & arthritis
  7. Boost energy
  8. Prevent constipation
  9. Reduce risk of cancer
  10. Improves productivity
In a nutshell,  DO NOT WORRY that drinking water will give your body a bloated look. There are a number of causes of water retention, including consuming too much salt. But drinking water is NOT one of them…
