11 Big Reasons Why Dehydration Makes You Sick and Fat
People always want to question something. It’s in their blood. It’s always the same question. How much water do we need? Why do we need it? If my weight is this, how much water do I need to drink to lose a few pounds?
Water is water and if I tell you how much you need in a day, you won’t hold it down to that amount.
When I started working with people I was focused on telling them that they need to drink approximately 2.5 to 3 liters of water every day.
The percentage of how many people held to that amount was really small. You need to make water your habit. Your daily routine.
I had one client that was drinking 3 liters of water in 2 hours just because she didn’t want to spend the day drinking water.
Digestive, skin, bladder and kidney problems, fatigue and headache are just some of the adverse effects from not drinking enough water. We need it as much as air we breathe in! It’s not a joke.
Did you know that when you start feeling thirsty your body is already dehydrated? The best practice is to sip water throughout a day. Have it always handy!
If you’re not a morning person, have two glasses of water right after you wake up. It will boost up your blood pressure to normal levels, and it’s way healthier than having your first coffee on an empty stomach.
Also, don’t think that sweetened juices, soda or tea will hydrate you as well as water does. It’s actually the opposite! Sugar, as well as salt, makes your body waste precious water just to clean it out from your system. And if you love your coffee, make sure to drink one extra glass of water for every cup you have.
And as an added bonus, drinking water speeds up your metabolism and makes you feel more ‘full’. You will eat less once you start drinking more! It’s the safest and healthiest way to lose some weight.
