Doctors recommend it, nutritionists recommend it but often we don't take their advice - Drink more water.
This is one great way to lose weight. Most nutritionists have recommended that we drink eight, 8 ounce glasses of water each day.
Some researches have said that in weight loss water is a vital part. Here's an idea - drink 3 quarts of water each day.
I know, you might be thinking, “Wow, that's a lot of water!" and it is, but some researches have determined that if you will drink three quarts of water chilled to only forty degrees then you will burn approximately 100 calories per quart consumed.
Researchers have determined that when you drink cold water (1 quart) it lowers your body temperature and that your body has to work to bring it's temperature back to normal and as a result it burns 100 calories in the process. Do this three times per day and you will burn 300 calories in one day or the equivalent of walking a treadmill for thirty minutes per day.
Think about it: You burned 300 calories without exercise! There are 3,500 calories in a pound so if you did just this and did not change your eating habits then in just 12 days you can expect to burn one pound of fat off your body.
At first this estimate doesn't seem like too much but divide 365 days (one year) by 12 days and in one year you can expect to burn almost 31 pounds of fat and that is without dieting!
Water also is a natural diuretic so it helps you lose that water weight as well!
Add lemon juice to the water you are drinking and add even more fat burning power! Some researches suggest that lemon juice is a natural fat burner! Also it's great because it adds flavor to this all natural beverage and that helps if you are not so fond of its plain taste.
Drinking more water even helps promote clearer and healthier looking skin.
Doctors recommend drinking more water and so do nutritionists so start drinking more of it and get healthier today!
