Lose Weight with Water – Detox and Cleanse Recipes
The human body is about 60%. Water is vital to our survival and is essential for our body to function normally. The rule that everyone knows is that we should drink 2 litres or 8 pints of water every day.
Despite there being little evidence behind this, it is important to be well-hydrated. We are losing fluid constantly, “From skin evaporation, breathing, urine, and stool, and these losses must be replaced daily for good health.”
If you are not drinking as much water as you are losing, then you become dehydrated. The amount of fluid loss you experience depends on the climate, the amount of exercise you do, whether you are somewhere with a high altitude, and your age. In old age, your sense of thirst can decrease.
You must maintain your body’s balance of body fluids to have a happy, healthy body. The fluids in your body are responsible for digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and the maintenance of body temperature.
In addition to water helping your body to function normally, drinking plenty of water also helps you to lose weight.
Read on to find out more about losing weight with water and get some delicious detox and cleanse water recipes to try out at home.
Drinking water will help you to lose weight for six reasons.
Water is an appetite suppressant
Water takes up space in the stomach. When your stomach is full, it sends a message to your brain to stop eating. If you drink water whilst you are eating, it will help to create that feeling of fullness and will reduce hunger.
Water increases calorie burning
Drinking cold water increases your calorie-burning capacity.
Water removes waste from the body
The water you drink cleans the toxins from your body. That’s why if you don’t drink enough water, your kidneys are not able to do their job properly.
Drinking water reduces your overall liquid calorie intake
If you drink water instead of your usual beverages, you will be consuming fewer calories than if you were drinking sodas, juices, etc.
Water is necessary if you want to burn fat
For the body to burn fat, you need to drink enough water. This is because the body only burns fat when water molecules interact with triglycerides.
Water boosts your energy levels when you are working out
Water helps your body to pump blood more effectively, meaning that more oxygen reaches your organs.
But what if you don’t like the taste of water? Fear not! There is a solution for you. Try these fabulous detox and cleanse recipes that don’t just taste great, they also help get additional nutrients into your system.
