We know when you hear the words "drink your food" you probably expect to see some advertisement promoting the latest liquid diet. Well, this is no advertisement, and we're not really talking about a liquid diet – at least not entirely, anyway. The truth is that there is a lot to be said for incorporating more liquids into your dietary plan. They are easier for the body to digest, usually easier to metabolize, and as a general rule they do not tend to get stored as fat – although sugar laden soda pop and alcohol are sometimes notable exceptions.
In this context, the idea that you can enjoy quick weight loss results by simply drinking your food is a call to overweight people everywhere to recognize the importance that water plays in their weight loss efforts. In fact, water is probably the single most important component of any diet plan. Its effects on digestion and waste elimination are well-documented, and it is also the most effective means for reducing the number and amount of toxins that hide in your fatty tissues and cause you to retain weight.
Increase your water intake
The first tip that we have for you is to make sure that you maintain a consistently high intake of water. Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day – preferably cold – even if that means that you need to be one of those folks who carry water bottles with them everywhere they go. In addition, make sure that you adjust your diet plan to include water-heavy fruits and vegetables. Not only are these fruits and vegetables rich in nutrients that your body needs, but most of them are high in fiber as well, which will work with your water intake to keep your body cleansed of toxins.
Into every life a little juice must fall
To that water intake, add a health drink at every meal. One of the most popular of these natural concoctions is a honey, lemon, ginger and grapefruit juice that you can make right in your own kitchen. Not only does the juice provide nutrients that increase metabolism, aid digestion, and promote greater fat burning – it also tastes great! There are a number of ways in which the ingredients can be mixed to suit your individual tastes. Just mix them until the juice tastes good to you!
Drinking's not the end
It goes without saying, of course, that there is a lot more to effective weight loss than simply drinking more water, adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet, and indulging in a delicious juice concoction. You should still include lean protein, cut out the harmful fats, and make exercise a regular part of your lifestyle. However, it all starts with the liquids – the more you have in your diet, the more efficient your body is going be in t areas of digestion and metabolic behavior. When you find the right balance, these tips can be an important part of your weight loss regimen as you drink your food to lose more weight.[ad_2]
