You’ve heard it a million times. Drink water. Then drink more water. Proper hydration is important for overall health, wellness, and weight management. It should really need no explanation, but I thought I would write some here.
Most of us don’t drink enough water. We are constantly dehydrated. If you are hungry, drink water first.
Why do I need to drink more water?
Your body is 60 percent water. Water helps your kidneys detox, your heart pumps blood and your intestines remove waste and absorb nutrients from the food you eat. Water helps to regulate your body’s internal temperature and prevents dehydration. It helps your brain functioning. Want more proof, read it straight from the research here.
Here are some more reasons.
- Water helps you lose weight easier.
- Water helps you feel full longer.
- Drinking more water increases your energy level.
- Water also helps get rid of toxins from your body.
- Helps flush out your kidneys and liver.
Need more reasons. Here is a theory I have.
A lot of times when you feel hungry, most likely you’re just thirsty. Drinking water before snacking will help curb your appetite or at least delay the snacking – helps you lose weight without dieting or exercising.
But Water is so bland and Tasteless.
Well. Look again. Does not look so bland and tasteless to me.
There are many ways you can get fancy and infuse water with delicious taste. Wash any fresh fruits and vegetables, perhaps some mint and lemons and add to the water. Leave in the refrigerator for an hour or so. And you will have the best tasting water.

Do I need an Electrolyte Supplement?
May be. If you are not eating a balanced diet, it might be a good idea to start with one. Electrolytes are minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Phosphorus etc. They improve muscle function and also help absorb water in your body. Electrolytes are needed in small amounts, and you will realize they make you feel energetic and help you performing at your best during your work day. Try an Electrolyte supplement like this.
Alright. Alright. Much Ado about Water. I am sure no one needs. Convincing.
Drink More Water.
