If you want to lose weight, the liquid you drink is very important. Yes, it’s about quantity, but it’s also about what type of drink. Here is some guidance to help you.

Drinking and Weight Loss – It’s What You Drink That’s Important

Your body needs liquid to function properly. Your metabolism is a biomechanical process which needs the right amount of water to make it work. Without the right amount of water your body is not able to absorb all the nutrients from the food that you eat.

If you don’t drink enough water, your body will store water as much water as it can. This is when you feel bloated.  Drink the right amount of water and your body will naturally release the stored water. This will result in you losing weight. It makes sense to drink the right amount of water, doesn’t it? You should drink about 4 ½  pints or 2 ½  litres every day.

What about colas and fizzy drinks? If you are serious about losing weight you should cut them out of your diet completely. If you drink and the classic versions they will be full of sugar. Diet alternatives are not an option because they are full of artificial sweeteners which may be low in calories, but will actually work against your efforts to lose weight. Why? Because your body tries to make up for the lack of calories that they contain by stimulating your appetite. The result is weight gain.

What about tea and coffee? If you drink the right amount of water you’ll find that your need to drink tea and coffee will diminish. Excessive drinking of tea or coffee is not helpful, particularly if you add sugar. If you want to drink tea, try drinking an infusion or just add some lemon to hot water.

Drinking water also flushes out your system and makes you healthier. You’ll also find that your hunger pangs will diminish significantly. It might be a little difficult to get used to it first, but the more you get into the habit the easier you will find it. There are some more useful tips in the link below.
