Water for weight loss
« on: September 06, 2013, 08:17:25 AM »
Are you getting your 8 gl*es of water a day? I try my best to remember. Not only is water good for you it might help with your weight loss too. Water has no calories and no sugar like other drinks. I have also heard that sometimes when your hungry it's actually your body saying it's dehydrated. So drink some water before grabbing that snack! I keep my water at the front of the fridge and push the cokes to the very back. Who wants to dig in the fridge for a drink?

Actually, I probably drink more than that. I always carry water with me. I take some medication which makes me terribly thirsty all of the time so I'm constantly drinking water. It certainly can help to flush the toxins out of your system.

It is good for loosing weight. I've heard that for every extra 10 lbs (I think that is what is was) you need to loose to drink and extra 8 oz of water. Not sure how that would work if you needed to loose a whole lot of extra weight but for 30 or 40 lbs should be ok.

Water really is good for losing weight, because you will be going to the bathroom a whole lot more, and thereby flushing a lot of waste out of your system.

It also helps to keep you *ll. A lot of times when you feel like you are hungry, you really are thirsty. Try water first and wait a bit, if you are still hungry then eat, but try water first.

I try to drink at least two liters of water a day. Not sure how many gl*es it is. I agree though that it helps to keep you *ll.

I drink purified water all day long. I feel like I am always thirsty. Hope this isn't anything serious. I always drink a big gl* right before I eat. Helps fill you up.

I read that new studies show that drinking too much water is bad for renal, now. It just goes to show how they change things all the time.  I'm sticking to my water. I love it.

I seem to retain water, though, when I drink it. This could fool you with weight loss. How does one handle this kind of situation? Water pills maybe?

8 hours is still a tall order, I must say, but I try my best to drink enough in a day. Water has a lot of benefits, and we would need a whole forum to discuss that.
