    Drinking Water to Fascilitate Weight Loss

    queenofkaossizzlinsand110.jpgDuring my weight loss challenge, I found that no matter how well I behaved in cutting out junk and controlling my eating habits, even if I kept up my exercise, I had problems loosing weight if I didn’t drink my water.

    Even one water bottle per day, mine is 3 cups, made the difference.

    So drink up!

      Being pregnant with my 3rd child in close succession has definately had a fattening effect on my poor body! ATM, I can’t seem to get into the world of exercise, even though I know it will help me feel better, have a better energy level and help my body to “bounce back” better after this little one is born. It’s just too much “work” for me right now.
      But I love this challenge, and it has actually been on my list of things I should do!
      Drink more water. It’s the first little step towards making a better me. :D
      Thanks for the reminder Janice!

      Hi -

      I have found the same to be true for me. Constintently drinking water has helped maintain my weight. It took me a long time to figure it out and I tended to yo yo diet but have maintained for a while now — I really think a lot has to do think drinking water regularly.

      I agree, water is very effective if you want to lose weight. Of course it can’t burn your fat but it stops hunger.

    4. Mercola Says:

      Drinking water helped me a lot when I was losing weight. Whenever I feel the urge to eat I just drink a glass of water, keep myself busy, and I’m good to go!

    5. Quick Weight Loss Tips Says:

      Water is definitely essential to losing weight and can also make you feel more full in between meals. If you have something in your stomach you wont get the hunger pangs and your organs will be more hydrated, giving you a little energy boost.

      On the downside you’ll have to pee a lot but take the good with the bad :)

    6. Better than Total Gym Says:

      Yes! Drinking 8 glasses of water a day is important to your health, your normal diet and to help lose weight. Water is necessary for the metabolism of your stored fat. Weight loss cannot occur without an active metabolism which requires large quantities of water. Another way to use water to lose weight is to drink a large glass of ice water just before meals. The cold causes your stomach to shrink slightly which will make you feel full faster. It is much better if you also eat healthy food and with regular exercise. There are good benefits you can get when you exercise regularly. Exercise can reduce the risk of premature death, developing diabetes, depression and anxiety, improve psychological well being, enhanced work, recreation, and sport performance.


      Great Blog! Water holds an important part of keeping our bodies healthy and sound. It also holds a large part in weight loss. Kelly Barton says “Water is the most neglected nutrient in your diet, but one of the most vital.” Aside from drinking the recommended daily amount of water our bodies need, exercise also holds a vital part in keeping our bodies healthy. Because there are no calories in water it is the best thing to drink when trying to shed those extra pounds.

      Drinking water is soooo important when trying to lose weight. It’s good for your organs and helps you exercise quicker and drinking a tall glass of water before eating will help you feel full and eat less.

    9. Chad Says:

      I know, when I was trying to loose weight I was watching what I ate, but drinking 6 diet soda’s a day, and never lost weight, but then I was told to cut out the water and dropped a pound in the first week.


    10. Weight Loss Workout Says:

      Water can be effective for weight loss particularly when we replace all the juice and soda in our diets with water. And as the comment stated above, water can also be used between meals to kep our hunger at bay.

      I read the other day that when we get hunger cravings between meals it’s usually because we’re thirsty not because we’re hungry.

    11. Healthy NewAge Says:

      Yes, drinking water is extremely important for your health. Remember though that true weight loss isn’t about the scale, but more so about dropping inches and maintaining what you lose. When you lose safely you will drop about one percent of your body weight
      a week. At first you may lose water weight, so it may seem like you are losing more. But when you calculate an effective weight loss program, be happy with one to two pounds a week. This is a healthy rate, and sometimes fat loss is replaced with muscle so the scale won’t change, but inches will. Good luck. Kirk

    16. Acomplia Says:

      Now that what I always told my relatives and friends – water is crucial for weight loss and crucial for overall health also. I experienced that in different ways – fasting with lots of water, dieting and exercising with lots of water. Actually, I had problems with kidney stones and the doctor who conducted surgery on me to remove the stones from urinary tract, when I asked him – what diet should I follow to never get to him again – he answered – the stones are made of crystallized salts. What do you use to dissolve the salt? Water? Then drink a lot, every day. So I did :)

      I have to drink water all day. I started this diet a few years ago, and I gave up soda etc….. when I don’t drink water on a regular basis, not only do I gain weight, I feel bloated and tired. Water, it’s the necter of life.


      I’ve actually been trying to drink alot of water and a friend of mine has actually lost 10 lbs. I have lost 8 and hope to continue on drinking water instead of carbonated drinks or ones with too much sugar.
