Why water is so important for fat loss

Drinking water is one of the most important factors in fat loss and shouldn’t be over looked when you are trying to cut those extra kilos this summer.

Are you drinking enough water?? Chances are you’re not! If you’re thirsty- you’re already dehydrated!

Here are three major benefits of drinking water:

1. Water keeps you hydrated

Dehydration causes your body to slow down your metabolism. Water helps metabolise stored fat. So when you drink more water your metabolism is accelerated and allows you to burn stored fat.

2. Transportation of nutrients

Water transports nutrients around the body that comes from food. Drinking more water will have huge benefits for organs, getting the nutrients they require for maximum efficiency. Water also flushes toxins from the body, which can be elevated during exercise.

3. Water helps with calories.

When dieting or eating low calories it can be a struggle to feel full. Water helps hunger cravings so you don’t overeat. When you don’t drink enough, you can feel sluggish: water helps you feel more energised throughout the day.

So, make sure to drink plenty of water, especially while exercising!

Water recommendations for an adult: Men: 3L daily Women: 2.2-2.5L daily
