How to quick­ly show self-care? Drink a glass of water!

We reg­u­lar­ly count calo­ries and mon­i­tor the amount of pro­tein, but what do we know about water? Does it help you lose weight?

We lose weight only if we have a calo­rie deficit, but water has a pos­i­tive effect on the weight loss process:

  • Sup­press­es appetite. Some­times we con­fuse hunger and thirst. When the stom­ach is full, it sends sig­nals to the brain, and the per­son, feel­ing full, stops eat­ing. And the surest way not to con­fuse thirst with hunger is to drink a glass of water.
  • Helps get rid of processed sub­stances. Water helps the kid­neys fil­ter tox­ins and waste, and the organs retain essen­tial nutri­ents and elec­trolytes.
  • Reduces liq­uid calo­rie intake. Many of us don’t notice how we drink a cou­ple of glass­es of lat­te with vanil­la syrup, a liter of sweet lemon­ade in the sum­mer heat, and don’t even think about how high-calo­rie these drinks are. Water can eas­i­ly replace juices, sweet tea or cof­fee, which can have a pos­i­tive effect on weight loss.
  • Helps with phys­i­cal activ­i­ty. Water helps mus­cles, con­nec­tive tis­sues and joints move prop­er­ly, and the lungs, heart and oth­er organs work effi­cient­ly. How much water should you drink? In this mat­ter, it is rec­om­mend­ed to focus on the feel­ing of thirst.

Do you mon­i­tor the amount of water you drink? If you haven’t yet, now is the time to start.
