I know you know that water is essential. I also know you’ve tried the whole drink 8 glasses of water a day and after countless trips to the bathroom and a weird lack of taste for the drink, you hardly made it past day one. But it’s not good enough, and I’ll give you 5 more reasons why.
#1 YOU’LL LOSE WEIGHT
Okay no, water isn’t some magic liquid that’ll drop off your pounds, but think of it like this – the more water you drink, the less you indulge into foods that youdon’tneed. Water doesn’t kill your hunger if you’re hungry, but if you’re bored, water will fill you up and help you lose your appetite. Studies have shown that adults who drank water before meals lost more weight in 12 weeks, compared to those who didn’t!
#2 REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN
Have you guys seen the picture of the woman who drank 3 litres of water everyday?
Take a good look, because she looksamazingafter the 4 weeks compared to her original. She looks like she literally lost 10 years, and she also lost a slight bit of weight (about 3 pounds). If this isn’t inspiring… I don’t know what is.
#3 BUILD YOUR STAMINA
So, water will help you sweat out more when you work out, but it’ll also build up your stamina. In a recent study, athletes who showed up hydrated to the race ran faster and longer compared to those who didn’t.
#4 REGULATE YOUR BODY
It’s no news, your body comprises of 70% water and did you know that in the US, 75% of people arechronically dehydrated?!Did you also know that by the time you’re thirsty, your body absolutelyneeds the water. The fact is though, that a lot of our foods do have water in them so it’s not like you’re depriving your body completely, but we still need more. Water keeps your kidneys going and allows it to make sure your whole body has enough to survive on.
#5 IMPROVES YOUR HEALTH
Lack of water can lead to headaches and mood swings, and we want neither of the two. It can also lead to difficulty in concentration and fatigue. The same lady who gulped down 3litres of water a day claimed that she found herself more energetic as time went on, and if that helps you drink more water, then why not?
