Is There A Connection Between Water And Weight Loss?

Weight loss isn’t always easy, but there are a lot of natural and healthy ways to help dieters reach their goals. Many people suggest that there is a connection between water and weight loss that can help anyone stay on their diet and lose weight. Drinking additional water or eating foods that are naturally high in water content is a safe and healthy way to improve your diet program.

Weight gain is almost always due to eating more food than we need to sustain our bodies. Choosing calorie-dense foods over low-calorie foods is also a contributing factor to weight gain. Sometimes people eat food when they think they are hungry, but they are really just thirsty. A glass of water can help tide you over until the next meal, reducing the calories you might have consumed while snacking.

Staying hydrated is important to maintaining energy levels. When you are dehydrated, you may feel sluggish and lack the energy to exercise or maintain your normal activity level. This can cause you to burn fewer calories over the course of the day, or lead you to crave more food and eat more than you should. Drinking the proper amount of water each day can help you maintain the energy level you need to live a healthy lifestyle.

Most people have been advised to drink 8 glasses of water each day. This is a good average for most people, but the exact amount you need can vary. If you are very active or live in a hot climate, you may need to drink more water. Most experts will advise you to let your thirst guide you.

Do flavored beverages count as water? This is a very common question on weight loss forums and in diet support communities. The original advice given by doctors was to consume at least 8 glasses of fluid daily, and they did not specify what their patients should drink. After being asked many times what counted as fluids, they revised their advice to suggest drinking water since it seemed like easier advice to follow.

The body digests the fluids found in foods and flavored beverages the same way as clear water, and does not make a distinction between the source of the water or fluid. All foods contain some water, even bread. Many foods, such as grapes and watermelon, contain large amounts of water that count towards your daily requirement for fluids. Tea, milk, and other beverages still contain water and the body recognizes it.

Foods that contain high amounts of water can help you feel satiated longer, eliminating the need to overeat. Diets that focus on foods that provide high volumes for fewer calories have resulted in successful weight loss for participants. The connection between water and weight loss was clear in their success rate.

Some people don’t enjoy drinking plain water and prefer to drink flavored drinks. It’s okay to do so, as long as you choose healthy beverages that don’t contribute empty calories to your daily program. You might enjoy water more if you choose filtered water that is ice cold. It’s refreshing and tastes better than tap water.

Drinking water can indeed help many people to lose weight, if it’s combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan. Water and weight loss go hand-in-hand for many dieters. It’s an easy tip to follow that can help you reach your goals and feel energized every day.

      Hi CollegeGirl

      In my opinion, no weight loss tips are truly successful on their own. Lots of water is not necessarily a good way, because how much water a person needs depends on the BMI of the person. 6 small meals maybe hard at times, especially when you are stuck at school or office and have no chance to eat, and then you need to eat more when you have the chance. Well, dieting is a good way to lose weight, but then it is hard to stick to a diet. For example, something like this:

      Breakfast:
      2 egg, low fat Cheddar cheese omelette – 320 calories
      2 slices wholemeal toast with thin smear butter – 200 calories
      Large slice melon – 47 calories

      Lunch:
      Spicy Turkey Salad recipe – 304 calories

      Snack:
      Muesli or honey nut Health Bar “Sainsbury” – 180 calories

      Dinner:
      Baked potato with 100g “Heinz” baked beans &/or Cottage cheese if desired – 300 – 400 calories (350 average)
      Large helping salad fruits &/or vegetables – 100 calories

      Another weight loss tip is to do interval and turbulence exercise.

      Turbulence Training is a fresh plan that requires finishing three 45-minute exercise sessions each week with marginal equipment. It is an increasingly trend-setting fitness plan with the intention of helping you in the reduction of weight.

      Interval training is the fitness world’s equivalent of a visit to the in-laws. The shorter and more intense the visit, the better. An interval is a short period of exercise performed at a given intensity for a specific length of time. Each interval is separated from the next interval by a short rest or lighter activity. There are no strict rules on how long or how intense the interval must be, however, changing the interval length or intensity changes the way your body works and responds to exercise.

      But people have a short willpower. It may be strong at the beginning but will eventually fade as time goes on- as they realize that going on a diet is not actually as easy as they think it is. Of course, the strength of willpower differs from one person to another. This is the reason why there are people who can actually maintain a diet and exercise program for 1 year and there are people who can only maintain it for few months. Nonetheless, willpower is a big factor that dictates someone whether to continue losing weight or not.

      And in my opinion, besides sticking to a diet and exercise plan, it is the ultimate willpower to stop yourself from overeating that is the #1 tip to lose weight. But that is the hardest part if you are accustomed to eating lots of food even though your body does not need it. It is partly because of the delicious taste of the food causing a craving for more. There are certain ways to fight this craving ad I found one that maybe helpful. It is a type of chocolate that can actually suppress your appetite. It will can provide Good Energy that promotes a healthy weight by providing energy while burning fat. And it helps suppress cravings for sugary snacks.

      Good luck!

      PS: Information on the Special Chocolate that I mentioned can be found on the website in the source box. Recently, they are giving away a one month free trial.

      The best advice I could ever give you is losing weight takes time. If you’ve tried and failed many times (which is what I am going through), you have to start slowly. Maybe start cutting out bad things in your diet little by little. You can’t expect to go from eating sugary processed foods and not exercising much to extreme healthy eating and exercising 7 days a week in one day, or even one week. You have to learn to control yourself and that means start small and keep everything under control. Another VERY important thing to remember is to NEVER EVER EVER give up! No matter if you go a whole week eating junk foods and not exercising, that does not mean you have to give up and never reach your goals. Just think, well, next week I’ll do better and get back on track. You have to believe you can do it. You have to want it for yourself and no one else.

      Exercise at least 5 times per week. I suggest strength training and cardio. Let’s say Monday you walk/run for 30 minutes, then Tuesday you would do push ups and sit ups and planks, and squats and then take a break Wednesday and start back up on Thursday.

      As far as your eating you really need to watch what you eat! That is the most important step. Portion control is important. If you normally get a big dinner, then cut the amount of food you get in half and that will help a lot. Another way is to get your plate and only eat 3/4 of the food you have on your plate.

      Eating healthy, lean meats, whole grain breads, and staying away from sugary things and high calorie foods. Always remember that cutting out something bad with something healthy really makes a difference. Drinking sodas and eating candy bars is empty calories. If you replace those things with a whole grain waffle or one small piece of dark chocolate it will really help.
