In Australia we have the cleanest and best tap water in the world. Bottled water, Tap water or Filtered water. It is free and healthy. But does drinking a lot of water also help with losing weight? The short answer is yes. And here I like to share even more benefits of drinking water with you.
How much water should you drink per day? The guideline is about two liters per day. Of course it is good to drink more water when it is hot or you have exercised. Drinking water is good for you, but do not overdo it. Drinking too much water can be damaging and cause you to get water poisoning. In addition, coffee, tea and other beverages also count towards your total fluid intake.
Drinking water gives a boost to your metabolism (metabolism). This can even amount to 3%. This ensures that you burn more fat. In addition, drinking water helps to reduce hunger and trigger your digestion. Drinking water helps with losing some weight. A tip to eat less and be full faster? Drink a good glass of water for every meal. The beauty of water (and tea, without sugar of course!) Is that it contains no calories. Drinking water instead of soft drinks or fruit juices gives you a lot less useless calories.
Water cleans your body from the inside. Waste can be better disposed of and toxins can be washed away. In addition, your gut can function better which ensures that your bowel movement is well underway.
Sufficient (water) drinking ensures that you get more energy. Drink plenty of water, give the body what it needs. This is because water helps to convert food into energy and nutrients can be better absorbed. In addition, water helps to restore and function properly of your muscles. So it is important to drink well after exercise!
And of course there are many more additional benefits of drinking water. Think for example of a better skin, better functioning of the bladder, and so on.
Drink plenty of clean water. Do you find it difficult to drink enough? Make it a habit to drink a large glass of water every day when you get up and go to bed. You can also keep track of drinking a glass of water every two hours, for example at 8, 10, 12, 2, 4 and 6 hours. Always bring a bottle of water in your bag, for school or work. And finally, make sure that you always drink two large glasses of water after exercise. You have lost a lot of fluid and your muscles need that moisture again to recover. It may take some getting used to, but your body will thank you!
