Drinking plenty of water really is one of the easiest steps you can take for a healthier, leaner body.
A lot of people underestimate the importance of hydration when it comes to fat loss, and drinking plenty of water really is one of the easiest steps you can take for a healthier body and mind. But it’s surprising how many people still allow themselves to get dehydrated.
Water makes up almost two thirds of our body and it plays a vital role in everything from regulating body temperature, to keeping our skin healthy. It can also help reduce injuries when you're training because water helps to keep your joints lubricated.
When it comes to fat loss, hydration aids metabolism, so keeping our bodies well hydrated is vital in boosting its ability to burn fat.
When the correct amount of water is consumed for your body type, some of the key benefits include:
• healthier skin
• healthier teeth and bones
• healthier joints
• improved digestion
• reduces fatigue
• increased fat metabolism
Don’t wait until you're thirsty
Rather than waiting until you're parched and chugging litres at a time, aim to drink water consistantly throughout the day from as soon as you wake up in the morning. I carry a water bottle with me at all times to remind me to stay hydrated.
So how much water should I drink?
The amount of water you should be consuming depends on a number things, such as your body type, your activity levels and your climate, but as a general rule I recommend drinking between 2-4 litres per day. This may seem like a lot but trust me it really will work wonders for your body.
Hydration tip: If you don't like drinking water on its own, try adding a slice of lemon or some fresh mint for flavour.
