Drink water and loose your weight.

Saturday, December 11, 2010

If you fail to take in enough water each day, your body thinks that it is entering a period of drought. As a result, your body reacts by storing as much water as possible to get through this drought. This extra, stored water leaves you looking and feeling bloated. Therefore, you must drink water to lose weight. The extra water signals your body that the drought is over. Your body will cease to hold excess water in reserve. 
Water is essential for proper kidney function. If your kidneys are functioning at a sub-optimal level, it receives assistance from your liver.

One of the liver's functions is to metabolize fat. Therefore, when you liver is lending a hand to your kidneys, your fat metabolism process is less efficient, and therefore, less productive.
Additionally, the extra water you drink water to lose weight acts as an extremely effective appetite suppressant. This is because your stomach will fill with water, leaving less room for food, and causing you to feel full sooner with less food. Less food generally means less calories. And less calories can help make it easier to be in a state of calorie deficit.
Over weight people need more water than thin people. Larger people have larger metabolic loads. Since we know that water is the key to fat metabolism... it follows that the over weight person needs more water to metabolize excess fat.
Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone... which in turn, aids proper muscle contraction and prevents dehydration. It also helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows weight loss. Shrinking cells are buoyed by water which plums the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and resilient.
Water helps rid the body of waste. During weight loss, the body has more waste to get rid of, and all that metabolized fat must be shed.
The colon is a primary internal water source. When the body gets too little water, it siphons what it needs from internal sources. Result? Constipation. But when a person drinks enough water... normal bowel function will return.

It is commonly recommended that people drink between 8 and 10 glasses of water per day. This is a good starting point.
But the answer is that it depends. As with most things, the more you weigh, the more water you need.
A table which shows a rough calculation of amount of water versus the body weight.

Lean Body  Mass in Kg
Water per Day
45  Kg
1.50 L
55  Kg
1.75 L
70  Kg
2 L
80  Kg
2.5 L
90  Kg
3 L
100  Kg
3 L
115  Kg
3.5 L
125  Kg
3.8 L
135  Kg
4 L

So in summary,

The body will not function properly without enough water and cannot metabolize stored fat efficiently.
It may seem strange, but to get rid of excess water... You must drink more water!
