You have managed to lose considerable weight but are you struggling to shed those last few kilograms? Researches show that most dieters are not sufficiently hydrated which could be one of the reasons of slow weight loss. Here are five reasons how water can help you lose weight.

Curbs Appetite: Drinking two glasses of water before a meal will make you feel full faster. Drinking water regularly will keep you full for long periods. This also minimizes the cravings to binge. Spare feeling guilty by drinking water whenever you feel like grabbing a snack loaded with calories. Most of the times, this trick prevents intake of hundreds of unnecessary calories.

Digestive Aid: Lack of water in the body slows digestion, which directly impacts body metabolism. This can make you feel bloated and tired. Keeping the body hydrated with sufficient water boosts the functioning of digestive and other organs of the body, including liver. Did you know that body needs about one liter of water to digest thousand calories that you consume?

Water retention: Sluggish body metabolism leads to water retention in the body, which can make you feel bloated. Drinking the recommended amount of water per day flushes out toxins and prevents water retention.

Zero calories: Water is a wonderful natural drink that has zero calories. Drinking water is the best alternative to juice and other snacks that are laden with hundreds of calories. Plain water does more good than harm to the body.

Energy levels: Keeping the body hydrated improves overall body energy, focus and memory. This will keep you motivated to be physically active, thus paving the path for weight loss.

Taking the First Steps

You should aim to drink about two liters of fluids per day. The requirement actually varies for each individual. Men on an average require about 3 liters adn women need 2.2 liters per day. Pregnant and lactating mothers require 2.3 and 3.1 liters respectively. Do not wait to feel thirsty to drink water. It is an indication that your body is dehydrated.

If you are not used to drinking lot of water, start with small amount and gradually increase the intake. You will feel very comfortable if you drink water all at once. Water is tasteless; hence, flavor it with natural herbs and citrus fruits. Remember, dehydration and weight-loss go hand in hand. So, increase your water intake today!

Indications That Your Requirements Are Met

Your body should produce about 1.5 liters of urine that is pale yellow in color, during the course of the day. If the urine is dark yellow, you are dehydrated with insufficient water.

Your Fortune For Today
Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

This is your day! You may find that people gravitate to you for advice and support. They’re apt to lower their guard and more openly accept things you believe in. Conversations could lead to more spiritual topics and you could end up giving lessons on the meaning of life. Suddenly, the things you’ve been thinking are reaching a huge audience that’s eager to hear your words.

Romance and marriage are very much on your mind today. A special encounter with a possible love partner could have you hankering for happily ever after. Books on attracting and maintaining relationships might be especially appealing as well as useful. Take care not to put too much stock in detailed analyses, however. Remember that such books are based on generalities. You’re unique.

Loved ones can bring complications on a day that would best be spent quietly. Obligations concerning the family can leave much to be desired. A direct and forthright approach can seem harsh, but it’s the best method. You will be most successful if you can remain calm and sincere.

Unexpected developments might interfere with your home life or with plans to spend a quiet evening with your family. This could have you feeling a little down at first, but don’t let it get to you. Whatever you do today might open doors that will benefit both you and those close to you.

Emotional matters could hit the fan today at a social event or group meeting of some kind. Those around you are apt to be feeling especially stressed and volatile, so be prepared for anything. Try to stay out of passionate confrontations, and don’t try to put oil on troubled waters. At times like this, such attempts only cause unwanted attention to focus on you. Stay centered.

The energy today may bring out the more thrifty side of your nature. People can be a problem, and someone could accuse you of meddling when you are only being helpful. Keep your sense of humor. Sudden surprises may shake your confidence. Patience and faith in yourself will bring back the Sun.

This is a positive day to take action. You may not like being told what to do. It’s possible to work successfully with irritating people. You have an opportunity to be very honest about your feelings. This can help you move on from any situation that haunts your thoughts.

Social events could put you in touch with a lot of interesting people, some in fields such as law, education, or the ministry. Expect at some point to be treated to a monologue on social and ecological responsibilities. You’ll have a lot of definite ideas on those subjects, but you’ll be more likely to listen than talk for most of the day. Enjoy your day.

Visualize your ideal situation one year from now. What are you willing to surrender in order to create your dreams? Let loose and explore where this could lead. It might bring the sense of purpose you have been searching for. If you see it in your heart, dreams can come true.
