Does water really help weight loss? 

The short answer is yes. Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanse your body of waste, and acts as an appetite suppressant. Water, constituting around 66 percent of the total body weight, is also one of the greatest aids in getting rid of excess weight.

Some research indicates that drinking water can help to burn caloriesWater may also temporarily increase the body's resting energy expenditure, or the number of calories burned while resting. 

Water helps the kidneys to filter toxins and waste while the organ retains essential nutrients and electrolytes. When the body is dehydrated, the kidneys retain fluid. Staying hydrated is a good way to avoid retaining waste.

How Much Water To Drink To Reduce Weight

According to research, it is recommended to consume 2 liters to 3 liters of water every single day to stay healthy and hydrated. You can split this by consuming 2 glasses of water before every meal. This can reduce the appetite and help you consume less food.

Apart from drinking water before meals, drink water even when you are not thirsty. Feeling thirsty means your organ systems have sent a signal to the brain, and that means you are already a little dehydrated.

How can you start drinking more water everyday ?

  • Keep a glass of water on your desk at work.

  • Keep another glass next to your bed. Many of us wake up dehydrated first thing in the morning.
  • Switch one glass of soda or cup of coffee for a glass of water.

  • Drink extra water when it is warm, humid, or very sunny.
