So, my sister and I were talking about loosing weight ( I am officially starting to try to shed off my pregnancy pounds) and she told me that she recently lost even more weight, and faster and easier than before, by drinking LOTS of water. Now, we have always been told to get our 8 glasses of h2o in daily, but my sister was telling me that she read an article (almost two years ago, so can't locate it now) about how lots of water in your diet (80 oz a day) burns extra fat.
Here's the deal; according to this article, the reason that our bodies hold on to extra fat is because it thinks that it is not going to be getting enough water (remember our bodies are made up of 80% water), therefore it holds on to extra fat to know that it will have a source of fuel (for lack of a better word). By drinking 80 oz of water a day, your body begins to realize that it is getting enough of it's need for water and it begins to let go of some of that extra fat that it has been storing, or hanging on too. Thus, you begin to shed some of those unwanted pounds. Combine this with some exercise and healthy eating habits and you are on your way to getting that body you want, or once had!
Please take note: Because I can not locate this article ( again she read the article almost two years ago) please consult your doctor if you have any questions, concerns or health conditions. Always pay attention to your body, and if 80 oz seems to be too much water for you, then come to an agreement with your health physician about a healthy amount of water for your body.
Here's to staying healthy, taking care of our bodies, and skin, and getting back in to shape.
**One more side note. All that water is great to keep your milk up if you are a nursing mom too.
Que pase una buena dia!
