WATER INTAKE CAN HELP BODY FAT LOSS
Water, water everywhere. In fact, H2O makes up about 60% of your body weight, making it like the most necessary thing ever to your body’s running system. Failing to keep sufficiently hydrated takes a massive toll on your body and can lead to dehydration. In fact, even mild dehydration can drain your energy levels, stopping you from performing your best in and out of the gym.
Dehydration frequently causes fatigue and loss in concentration. And do you know what that means? You’ll be reaching for the naughty-cupboard in no time. Sometimes when your body is “craving” sugar, it’s actually craving water – so don’t mix it up! Staying hydrated will also help you feel fuller between meals.
WHAT WATER DOES TO YOU:- Helps maintain glowing skin and shiny hair
- Assists in supporting a healthy digestive system
- Reduces those hunger pangs
- Increases energy to keep you going throughout the day
- Increases your metabolism to speed up the fat burning process
We lose water every day through breathing, perspiration, urine and bowel movements, so replenishing your body’s water supply is an absolute must!
