Not Losing Weight Due to 'Water' Reasons!
There is a diet myth we all know. “It helps if I drink water.” Is it the water that works, or is it what we eat before drinking water? So first of all you need to know:
1) Am I drinking enough water?
2) When do I drink the water?
3) How do I drink the water?
If we answer these questions correctly, water can help us on our weight loss journey. Water is naturally calorie-free, and people who drink enough water each day unconsciously eat less than those who drink less.
Because water is a natural appetite suppressant, and when the stomach feels full, it sends signals to the brain to stop eating. This makes it easier to lose weight. Also, without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat. Again, adequate water consumption is necessary to keep our metabolisms fast, not to experience constipation and most importantly not to get stressed.
When you drink less water, the stress hormone cortisol can increase in the body. High cortisol makes it harder to lose weight. We learned why we should drink enough water. So how much and when should we drink? The amount of water needed varies greatly depending on age, gender, health, physical activity, tendency to sweat, and more.
But for adults, it can be said that 2.5-3 liters per day in general. It is more effective to spread the water intake over time and arrange it on an empty stomach, that is, half an hour before each main and snack. It is not recommended to drink a lot of water between meals and just after the meal.
The easiest way to control your water consumption is to identify and consider a bottle of your own. Or you can download water reminder apps to your phone from the internet. It is very effective in following and reminding.
As a result, if you can get into the habit of drinking enough and regular water, you can say " IF I DRINK WATER IT WORKS FOR ME". Stay well.
