Water and Fat Loss are #couplegoals
This isn’t like that chocolate bar that you’ll DIE if you don’t eat. You actually can’t live without water. And drinking water helps you reach your fat loss goals!
Simples. Drink a large glass of water 15-20 minutes before eating a meal. It will kick start your metabolism, so it’s raring and ready to go when food hits your stomach!
Hungry Thirsty Time. Sometimes your silly brain will tell you it wants more food, when really it’s just thirsty! After a meal, if you still feel peckish, have a large glass of water and wait 20 minutes. This usually quenches any cravings to raid the pantry!
Drink Drank Drunk. Always drink water (or soda water). Anything else contains sugars and additives that aren’t good for fat loss or your body! If you’re out and have to have an alcoholic beverage; order a vodka soda. I recommend adding fresh lime to jazz it up. It’s SO refreshing – especially after you’ve sweated it up on the D floor! (Don’t be fooled by the Coke Zero’s or the like. They’re full of bad stuff!)
Not THOSE Sort Of Cramps. If you’re focusing on fat loss, I’ll bet you’re doing your best to exercise too. Water helps prevent muscle cramp! Don’t be that person in the gym looking like something out of Poltergeist. It freaks everybody else out – avoid it by drinking some cool H20!
Get It Down Ya. It’s recommended that we drink 8-12 glasses (2 litres) of water a day. The professionals at ISSA wouldn’t tell us to do that unless it was important!
Fully Charged. You’ll feel more energised. If we don’t drink the recommended dose of water, our heart has to work extra hard to pump blood through our bodies. This can cause fatigue.
Om Nom Nom. When we’re dehydrated our brain does that pesky thing again, where it confuses thirst with hunger. You actually eat MORE when you’re dehydrated. No weight loss here, people!
Bonus Points. Water is the EASIEST way to rejuvenate and purify your skin and body! People that drink more water look younger.
The beauty of water is that it can be consumed in lots of different forms. It could be from the tap, icy cold, soda water or peppermint tea. Whatever floats your boat! Mix it up to avoid reaching for sugary drinks!
