Why Don't We Drink More Of This For Quick Weight Loss?
By: Jayson Hunter RD, CSCS
The majority of our population is deficient in this nutrient and for some reason we don't realize how powerful it really is.
I am talking about water.
Yep, plain old water.
Here is how a simple glass of water can help you lose more weight faster.
1. Drink 12-16 ounces of water 15-30 minutes before eating your meal will significantly decrease the amount of food you eat according to researchers that have studied this.
The reason for this is simple. Water takes up space and causes your stomach to expand. This sends a signal to your brain that you are full and the result is you eat less food and calories.
2. The next time you feel hungry at an abnormal time go ahead and drink 12-16oz of water and wait 20 minutes. If you still feel hungry then eat a healthy snack. If you don't feel hungry anymore it is most likely because you were actually dehydrated and just thirsty.
It is common for your brain to confuse the thirst signal with your hunger signal when all you need is some plain old water. Your body gets confused and thinks you are hungry and sends out the hunger signal.
Most of us walk around in a mildly dehydrated state and some of us also think we are always hungry.
Do you really need food or should you just fix your hydration level?
3. The third benefit of drinking water to help you lose weight is the thermogenic effect. Particularly when you drink cold water. Your body will begin to increase your core temperature, which results in a slight thermogenic effect. This thermogenic effect increases the calories you burn.
Here is the final thing you need to do.
Go grab yourself 12-16oz of cold water and enjoy it for all the powerful benefits it provides.
