We’ve heard it all before. Drinking the recommended amount of water – 2L or 4 bottles per day, is absolutely necessary to maintain good health. We’ve also been told that drinking more water can assist with weight loss – but the question is, how? Something on our bucket list this year is to lose weight and focus on staying hydrated. Here’s how Fountain of Youth Bottled Water can help with your weight loss goals.
If nothing else, do this: Pound back a glass of water as soon as you experience a hunger craving. Assume that hunger means thirsty – because, in most cases, it does! The same goes for mealtimes. Drinking water prior to meals greatly decreases appetite.
Work Up A Sweat
They say weightloss is 80/20 diet and exercise. If you have found that you have reached a plateau with your diet, it’s time to get some exercise in. Drinking enough water has a direct impact on athletic performance. This means that you can go for longer and burn more calories if you are properly hydrated. Sufficient water also helps with post-workout recovery, so you won’t be as sore the next day and be more inclined to do it again!
Don’t Drink Your Calories
How much does a can of coke have in calories? 150. How many calories in a Starbucks Frappacino? 450. If these are your default go-to drinks every time you get thirsty, you could easily cut out close to 1000 calories per day. Reach for the water and see the difference in your skin, energy and waistline!
Losing weight is not complicated; it starts with simple routines that become habit. The rewards you reap from such a simple habit keeps us healthy, radiant and energized. As these three tips hopefully show, it can also help us lose weight, get fitter and feel better, too!
