Drinking water and staying hydrated is key to a healthy lifestyle. Water accounts for 60% of our body, therefore making it an essential part of our everyday diet. A vital nutrient, water can really aid our wellbeing, especially when it comes to weight loss.

In the past few years, there have been positive studies that suggest increased water consumption can be beneficial for weight loss (1) . Increased water consumption is a healthier alternative that can help towards building a healthier lifestyle.

 

Read on to find out how drinking water can potentially help you lose weight!

 

 

1) Drinking water is a healthier alternative

 

 

A few health studies suggested that drinking water could help burn calories. Unfortunately, there is not enough research to suggest that this is true. However, drinking water to help improve your lifestyle is a known fact. The more water you drink and the less unhealthy beverages you consume, the more weight you could potentially lose. To help you lose calories, you need to be burning more calories than you consume. Drinking Magnesium Mineralized Water may be beneficial as it helps to improve your digestive system. Not only will mineralised water help keep you in good health, but it also makes you feel full, which means you will consume less (2).

2) Drinking water before meals, helps to reduce appetite

 

 

Medical professionals have said that occasionally signs of dehydration could actually be mistaken for hunger. Past studies have shown that 37% of people mistake dehydration for hunger because thirst signals can be weak (3). Normal signs of hunger include fatigue, stomach gurgling or rumbling, headaches and lack of concentration but these symptoms also overlap with the symptoms for dehydration. It is important to listen to your body and read the signs before dehydration sets in. Research suggests that drinking water 30 minutes before a meal can help to reduce your appetite. Next time you feel hungry, make sure to drink a glass of water first, you might just be thirsty! (4)

3) Drinking water regularly helps with physical exercise

 

The most common way of losing weight is through physical exercise. A healthy and balanced diet alongside regular exercise is key to a healthier lifestyle. Drinking water regularly can help support your muscles whilst you exercise. Water helps ensure your muscles stay relaxed during strenuous exercise, which in turn helps you lose weight.  

In addition, staying hydrated ensures you reduce the risk of muscle cramps and fatigue during exercise, which can result in you taking time off from exercising and as such reduces the amount of weight you could possibly lose.

4) Drinking water benefits your mind

 

 

Losing weight can be a long and difficult process for some, especially when we have days where our emotional energy levels are low. Drinking water regularly is beneficial in many ways, including: better concentration, prevention of headaches, reduced levels of stress and anxiety and better sleeping patterns.  

Hydration allows you to function better when it comes to everyday tasks, which in return gives you that much needed boost to keep motivating yourself to lose weight. Our mind can be our biggest strength when it comes to weight loss and we can help to nourish it by drinking water regularly
