Water for weight loss
Ever tried spending an entire day without having water, in any form? If you did, you’d know how weak your body becomes without water. Water is most commonly available to all of us, yet the most under rated. Without water in our daily lives, we’d be helpless and inefficient. Lack of water can impact the regular functioning of our bodies. Bootcamp Chennai encourages you to incorporate water in several forms into your diet, as long as it is a healthy option.
The average human body is made up of about 53% of water. The composition roughly varies from person to person in terms of age, gender, lifestyle etc. It is vital for every person to drink 8 glasses of water per day, well, at least. In our busy, monotonous lives, we neglect drinking water to an alarming extent. Some of us just drink water when we are thirsty or after a long hard day which is an alarming trend. Your body needs to stay hydrated throughout the day to ensure that your organs are functioning in the right way and your muscles are getting the right amount of water. Lack of water in the system might not reveal its impact immediately, but it can cause severe health problems in the future.
Water and Weight Loss:
Wondering how something as simple as water can help burn fat and aid in losing weight? Well, over the years, our body accumulates several toxins, that can be flushed out only with water. Water in its simplest form, can do wonders to your body.
The following are some of the benefits of drinking water:
It boosts your metabolism by up to 3 percent. A faster metabolism can help you lose weight even when you are not exercising, how cool is that?
It is an appetite suppressant. It gives your body the impression that it is full, thus making you eat in proportion and not over-eat or snack.
It detoxes your body and cleanses your organs, leading to release of toxins from your body.
It regulates your bowel movements, again releasing toxins from your body.
It helps maintain the water composition in the body. If you drink less water, the body tends to retain water in the body, which will not help in weight loss and might lead to bloating.
