Drinking the right amount of water each day can be an important tool in your weight loss arsenal, and keeping your body properly hydrated at all times has significant health benefits as well. More than half of the human body is made up of water, and some of the most important organs in the body are predominantly made from it. Every cell, tissue, and organ in the body needs water to work efficiently. Water regulates body temperatures, transports nutrients and flushes out toxins. Getting enough water is also directly related to your energy levels. When you are dehydrated, you feel tired and sluggish. Water plays such a vital role in your diet because it aids in the metabolism of fat, and helps you feel fuller, longer, so it is essential to the success of any weight loss program. In order to stay properly hydrated, aim to drink half your body weight in ounces daily.
Staying Hydrated Helps You Lose Weight Faster
“How much water should I drink to lose weight?” The answer depends, at least in part, on you.
Hydration simply refers to having enough water for your body to perform its various functions effectively. By the time you feel thirsty, some level of dehydration has already kicked in.
However, dehydration isn’t always obvious. Due to things like sodium content in the diet, it is possible to become dehydrated rapidly and stay that way for long periods without knowing.
According to research reported by the Mayo Clinic, men need about three liters of water per day, while women need about 2.2 liters. These guidelines are fairly close to the old adage of “eight glasses of water per day”.
When you are adequately hydrated, it helps to ensure that your cells are properly fueled and working at their best. Your body can more easily flush metabolic waste products. You can work out harder, longer and rebuild cells faster and more effectively during and after a workout. Dehydration, on the other hand, leads the body to slow down and conserve fat.
