Water's Role in Weight Loss

Water plays an enormous role in how well our body functions. Simply put the more fresh water we drink, the healthier we become. Weight loss can also be achieved by drinking the right amount of water daily. Various advantages of drinking water include:

  • It helps maintain muscle tone, weight loss, clear and healthy skin.
  • It helps prevent lower back pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, headaches, migraines, asthma, allergies, colitis, rheumatoid, arthritis, depression, hypertension, cholesterol, hangovers, neck pain, muscle pain, joint pain, bloating, constipation, ulcers, low energy levels, stomach pain, confusion and disorientation.
  • It regulates body temperature, remove toxins and wastes, cushion and lubricate joints, decrease risk of kidney stones, protect tissues, organs and the spinal cord from shock and damage.
  • It assists in the digestion & absorption of food, and in transporting oxygen and nutrients to the cells.

Drinking water is extremely beneficial for weight loss. Water contains no calories, fat, or cholesterol and is low in sodium. It is also a natural appetite suppressant. Studies have proved that a low consumption of water allows more fat to be deposited instead of being metabolized into energy. Thus, higher the consumption of water, lower is the amount of fat deposited. Water regulates all bodily functions including the activities of circulating and dissolving.

Every enzymatic and chemical reaction of the body occurs in the presence of water. Water also transports hormones, nutrients, oxygen and antibodies through the blood stream and lymphatic system.

In addition, our bodies' proteins and enzymes are more efficient in solutions of lower viscosity (i.e., diluted), thus helping in weight loss and fitness.
Muscles are primarily composed of water. Therefore, it's only logical to drink lots of water if you want to have more muscle mass.

Water also ensures that a proper muscle contraction can be achieved so that the working muscle is properly exhausted. This again prevents deposition of fat.

While drinking 64 ounces of water everyday may sound like an easy task, it can get a little boring. What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder.
