Drink this and Lose Weight

Okay, before we get started... I know you are saying water... really? Water is a natural resource, It's plain ,it's well- it's water. Well, I agree, water is basic- yet we can't live without it. Many times when it comes to losing weight - we  are NOT USING THIS BASIC RESOURCE to our advantage. I want to share with you a few simple ways you can use water to help you lose weight.

 It Delivers

Water assists in the digestions process which helps to deliver nutrients to the body. the digestion process starts in the mouth- with saliva.When you drink water before each meal ,we not only help with the breaking down of the food for proper digestion, but we also eat less food. So if overeating at each meal is a problem. Drinking water with your meal may help to prevent you from overeating.

 More on Delivery

Water helps to deliver oxygen to the body. In other words... you have more energy. More energy means being more active.The more active you are, the more calories you are burning. You are breathing better, your heart is pumping and you feel like a rock star, because you are enjoying your fitness workouts more.

The Pipe-Cleaner
Water helps to eliminate toxins from the body.Which means your body will respond better to the nutritious food you are eating to lose weight, because your body's systems are working they way they should.

If you find water to hard or too boring to drink, try drinking from a straw. We tend to drink more water with a straw instead on "tipping the bottle". also try keeping your water visible so that you will remember to drink often. So there you have it - drinking water can actually HELP YOU DROP THAT WEIGHT. Drink up- and start losing weight.Stay connected to me here for more tips and motivation. Until next time.
