With the recent humid weather here in Marbella, I hear a lot of clients tell me that they have no energy and feel fatigued, that the weather has drained them and they feel tired all the time. Well it seems to me that they are not getting enough water and with the increased temperatures it’s very important to keep hydrated. Drinking more water actually helps increase your energy levels as water accounts for approximately 60% of our body weight. Every single one of our organs and bodily systems require water in order to function properly. Dehydration, even at low levels, can cause various body functions to slow down, leaving you feeling sluggish, tired, and irritable.
In general, dehydration leads to fatigue, which slowly eats away at your bodily functions you need to get through the day. The more water you drink, the more awake and alert you’ll feel
Drinking more water will also help you lose weight. Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanse your body of waste and acts as an appetite suppressant. Drinking more water helps your body stop retaining water, leading you to drop those extra pounds of water weight. So make sure you’re drinking the recommended eight-to-10 8-ounce glasses per day to keep yourself hydrated and encourage weight loss.
If you want elevated energy levels, great skin and want the water to help you lose weight, you should follow the “8×8” rule recommended by most nutritionists: Drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day for weight loss and to maintain an ideal weight. You might need to drink more water if you exercise a lot or sweat heavily.
The amount of water you need depends also on your size, weight and activity level. You should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.
You also notice a difference in muscle tone. You can lift all the weights you need, but if your muscles are not hydrated you won’t see a big difference in your appearance. When you muscles that have all the water they need. they contract more easily, making your workout more effective, and you’ll look better for it.
However, keep in mind that you’re going to have to do a lot more than just drink water if you need to lose a significant amount of weight. Water is just one, very small piece of the puzzle.
