Stay Hydrated for a Beach Body!July 27, 2018
It’s summer, which means it’s the ideal weather to spend more time outdoors. This means you’ll also need to stay hydrated to ensure you don’t fall ill when the heat beats down on you. However, staying hydrated can also provide you with additional benefits for weight loss. Read on to learn more!
Drinking water can refresh and cool you down, but as a way to make you ‘feel full’. It lacks calories, so it’s the best way to refresh yourself compared to energy drinks or even juice. Water is also helpful in flushing out waste from your body, which is important when trying to burn fat. It also helps your metabolism by aiding in burning calories. Studies have found that increasing your water intake by six glasses can boost caloric burn by 200 calories.
Of course, drinking water alone isn’t going to help you lose weight. You need exercise for that as well, and what better energy drink than just water? Drinking plenty of water before your workouts can help boost your energy levels by keeping your muscles nourished with oxygen.
All that is just a longer way of saying no matter your health goals, it’s important to stay hydrated. Drink water as often as possible – when you’re feeling thirsty, you’re in the very early stages of dehydration.
