Water Benefits for Weight loss, Cellulite and Fluid Retention

Water (H2O) is probably the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off.

One of the things we take most for granted, H2O plays a very important role in permanent weight loss. It aids in suppressing the appetite naturally and in metabolizing stored fat.

Water helps you lose weightStudies show that a decrease in H2O intake may cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in H2O can actually reduce the fat deposits in the body. The kidneys do not function properly without enough water and when this occurs, some of their function is passed on to the liver.

The liver works to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body, so if the liver has to help the kidneys, it cannot function effectively and consequently metabolize less fat. Thus, fat remains stored in the body and weight loss will stop.

People who are prone to fluid retention often think that reducing their fluid intake will help to remedy this problem. Actually the opposite occurs. The body perceives a lack of fluid as a threat to its survival so it attempts to hold on to every drop.

Fluid is then stored in spaces outside the body's cells, causing swollen feet, hands, butt, thighs and legs. The best way to overcome excess fluid retention is to give the body what it needs plenty of H2O.

Water also helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving back the muscles natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. It helps prevent sagging skin that often accompanies weight loss. Shrinking cells are plumped up by H2O and the complexion appears clear, healthy and radiant.

H2O flushes waste from the body - a particularly important function when losing weight as there are toxins being released from the fat cells and eliminates problems with constipation.

How Much Water Is Enough?

At least 64 ounces a day, preferably 72 ounces, and if you are overweight you need to add one glass (8 ounces), for every 25 pounds you need to lose. An easy rule of thumb is to divide your weight in half to determine how many ounces you need to drink daily to start shedding water weight.

Getting Enough Fluid is Critical Because:

  1. The body will not metabolize stored fat without it.
  2. Fluid retention shows up as excess weight and the appearance of cellulite.
  3. If you drink enough H2O, more fat will be used as fuel because it frees up the liver to metabolize stored fat.
  4. There is a loss of hunger almost overnight.
  5. Hunger pangs are often confused with the body wanting fluid or thirst pangs.
