We have all heard how important drinking water is for our bodies. But have you ever thought of how important it is from a weight loss standpoint?
This article from bodybuilding.com hits some vital points in why water is so important for our bodies.
However, let’s consider the importance of it in our weight loss journeys. Don’t be confused, water has no magical power to help you burn fat but it does aid in weight loss. Drinking plenty of water can help keep you from overeating.
Several people confuse hunger for thirst, so they tend to eat rather than drink water. If you are having cravings, try drinking a glass of water first so you don’t fall victim to the confusion of thirst vs. cravings.
Obviously, when drinking plenty of water, you are avoiding the other types of sugary, caloric drinks such as sodas, teas, and juices.
A good way to measure your water intake is to be sure you are drinking at least half your bodyweight in ounces of water per day!
