Episode 73: Water And Weight Loss

 

Water And Weight Loss

Like green tea, drinking water is also one of the hacks, often suggested as a great way to “lose weight”. But have you ever given it a thought as to how real the benefits of drinking water are? Join me in today’s quick episode and be ready for some numbers as I lay down to you the data and evidence of how water impacts weight loss, overall health, and wellbeing.

 

 

Key Highlights: 

Tune in to this conversation and learn:

  • How drinking water before meals reduces the risk of being overweight and decreases energy intake for about 13%
  • How mere promotion of water in classroom lessons and installing water fountains in schools can significantly increase water consumption of students and reduce the overweight rate by 31% 
  • How BMI, overweight, and obesity of students were affected by the installation of waterjets in schools
  • Why simply drinking water leads to easier loss of body weight and fat over time
  • The significant association between inadequate hydration and elevated BMI and obesity
  • How the replacement of one serving per day of a sugar-sweetened beverage (or fruit juice) by one cup of water slows down weight gain
  • What you can do to gradually increase your daily water intake

 

Practical Ways on How to Increase Water Intake:

  1. Start drinking water more consciously. 
    • You can always carry a water bottle with you.
  2. Keep the water in front of you.
    • Having water always in front of you will motivate you to drink water more frequently.
  3. Replace tea or coffee with hot water.
    • Try heating water and sipping it from a cup. It will also feel very satisfying.
  4. Add fresh fruits to your water.
    • Adding the fruits to your water really gives it a very nice and mild flavor.
  5. If you’re feeling hungry, don’t eat right away.
    • Try checking in with yourself first. The brain sometimes mimics thirst as hunger, even when you are just thirsty and all you need is water.

Quotes:

“Water is critical for the proper functioning of our bodies.”
