Experts suggest you need to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to be healthy as well as lose weight. I have seen many proven stories where people drink at least 2 glasses before meals and shed pounds. Drinking water will help you lose the hunger, another thing is it will hydrate your body and pass out toxic waste as urine.
Drinking water is 100% calorie-free also it helps you burn more calories and may even suppress your appetite.
Studies have proven drinking water helped the woman who didn’t do any physical exercise to losing weight.These women didn’t make any lifestyle changes except to drinking more water, these results are very impressive.
Several other studies have monitored overweight people who drank 1-1.5 litres (34–50 oz) of water daily for a few weeks found a significant reduction in weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and body fat (8, 9, 10).
These results may be even more impressive when the water is cold. When you drink cold water, your body uses extra calories to warm the water up to body temperature.
Many health authorities recommend drinking eight, 8-oz glasses of water (about 2 litres) per day.
However, this number is completely random. As with so many things, water requirements depend entirely on the individual.
For example, people who do a lot of exercises regularly or sweat a lot may need more water than those who are not very active.
Older people and breastfeeding mothers also need to monitor their water intake more closely.
It is important to know that you also get water from many foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, meat, fish, milk, and especially fruits and vegetables.
You need to keep in mind that you should always drink a lot of water when you are feeling thirsty, feeling dehydrated, trouble in concentrating, having a headache, bad mood or constantly hungry. Drink enough to quench your thirst and this may help to fix your problems.
Based on the studies, drinking 1-2 litres of water per day should be sufficient to help with weight loss.
Here’s how much you should drink in different measurements:
- Litres: 1–2.
- Ounces: 34–67.
- Glasses (8-oz): 4–8.
