How Much Water Should I Drink to Lose Weight Effectively?

If you're reading this, you probably want to shed some pounds, and you already probably have an idea of just how important water is in any weight loss diet. But just like many people, you might also be wondering how much water you should be drinking to lose weight.

According to health experts, a typical adult should be consuming about eight glasses of water a day. But if you are trying to lose weight, you should be drinking a bit more -- on average, about ten glasses per day. But remember: the higher your weight, the more water you need to drink.

Don't let the thought of drinking so much water overwhelm you. You don't have to drink them all in one sitting -- in fact, you shouldn't! Spread out your water-drinking throughout the day, and you will find that it's hardly any effort at all.

Here are some of the reasons why water is essential for weight loss:

-Regular intake of water signals your body that there is no "drought." Therefore, it won't retain or store water that causes bloating.

-Water helps suppress your appetite. It fills your stomach, causing you to feel full quicker with less food.

-Water makes your exercises more effective by improving muscle strength and control. (You do realize that you need physical activity for healthy weight loss, don't you?) This happens because the electrolytes your muscles need to function properly require sufficient amounts of water.

In addition, water is important for the lubrication of your joints. If your joints and your muscles are dehydrated, you place extra stress on them and they will not function effectively.

And one other important thing that so many people overlook when trying to lose weight: it is vital to drink only clean and pure water.

Water that is full of chemicals and contaminants will actually prevent you from losing weight. This is because your liver will spend time trying to filter out these toxins, time it should instead be spending burning or converting your stored fat into energy.
