Water and Health
May 7, 2020
While there is no denying about the importance of a healthy diet, more often than not, we forget to properly hydrate ourselves when trying to achieve a fit body. Water inarguably is one of the most important factors of weight loss.
If you’re looking to lose weight and are one a diet, then the following 5 information concerning water will help you immensely.
All day long
What feels like a growling ache in your stomach, is often a sign of slight dehydration you mistook for hunger. So the major key here is to be hydrated, even when you’re on a diet. You might think that your body is craving a burger but in reality, all you need is just a glass of water.
Before you eat
People who have successfully lost a lot of weight have drunk a lot of water before starting their meal. As you can guess correctly, drinking water right before any major meal lessens your appetite, and as a result, you get the necessary will to not eat in the form of an already full stomach.
Creative ways to drink water
Once you’re determined to stick to your diet, a lot of “tasty” foods are probably off limits. And if that’s the case, then there are plenty of other foods that you can take. Give yourself the gift of tea. Introduce a cup of black tea or herbal tea or even go an extra mile and make yourself a lemon tea from scratch.
Diet foods that are rich in water
Feeling hungry? Everything that you want to eat is rich in calories? Have a watermelon. Fresh fruits are very high in water, with melons and strawberries being the highest (91% water) and bananas being the lowest (75% water).
Exercise and water
Aside from preparing a food intake chart to help you with your diet regimen, there should be plenty of room for exercise in it. Not only it’s a good way to lose health, it’s incredibly beneficiary for your overall health.
First and foremost, you should remember you need water to keep your muscles functioning. However, don’t drink all your water at once. Too much water in your system while exercising makes you nauseated. You can drink as much as 1-1.5 glasses of water about 15 minutes before you start exercising and if it’s a strenuous session drink about one more glass every 20 minutes. Take a few more sips after you are done but make sure you are not over hydrated.
