Lose Weight By Drinking Water

Drinking Water at The Right Time's

I just wanted to share with you a quick way to lose weight simply by drinking water, lots of water, and at the right times. See the thing about water is that 60% of your body is made up of water. Think about that for a second. Your brain and heart is 73% water. Your lungs are 83% water. So what do you think happens when you don't drink enough water? Or if you drink “water” but in sugar form. Soda, Slurpee's, Coffee. Did you know that the primary way they deliver cancer treatment is with sugar because sugar feeds cancer so well?

So when your body stops getting enough water, it naturally thinks you are trying to kill yourself and it goes into starvation and preservation mode. It start saving as much fat as it can and sucks in every bit of moisture and sugar it can, and you basically start swelling up! Candida (yeast) starts having a party in your body, and you start getting headaches, migraines, and you basically start to murder yourself. WATER IS IMPORTANT! So, how do you not only drink enough water, but drink it at the right times?

Drink Water in The Morning

When your body wakes up, it needs to know it's time to get the show on the road! The best way to wake up your body is to drink two big glasses of water when you wake up. I usually gulp one big glass, and then I carry another glass around me as I go about my morning return. Yes most of you hit the coffee machine to wake up. That is actually the worst thing you could do to yourself. Not just if you are trying to lose weight, but in general. Your body needs to get ready for the day.

Drink Water 30 Minutes before Meals

Drinking water 30 minutes before a meal will get your stomach ready to digest food. The alkaline properties in water will basically tell your stomach “ok, get ready to work.” and when the food gets there, it will digest it very easily and absorb the most nutrients possible. Unfortunately, what most people do is they drink water or juice or alcohol with their meals, which basically flush everything out of your body and don't allow your body to absorb the nutrients in the food. Drinking water 30 minutes before, will make you less thirsty as you eat as well.

Drink Water When You Crash After Lunch

Many of you eat a heavy carb lunch that causes your blood sugar level to go nuts, and give you that “I'm so tired” feeling around 2pm. Instead of running for coffee or a chocolate bar to increase your insulin levels in your body, drink a glass of water. That's right, a glass of water will go a long way to wake you up. Chances are you're very dehydrated and if you just give yourself one to two glasses of water around 2pm, you will be shocked at the results.

Drink Water before Bed

Your body is about to basically go into hibernation mode for 6 to 8 hours (hopefully). It needs water. Actually one of the best ways to avoid having a stroke or heart attack while you sleep is to drink a big glass of water before bed. That should be reason enough for you.

Lose Weight with Water Today Easy To Remember Plan

Here it is pretty straightforward. Once you start doing it, it becomes habit. You basically can't get enough water. Any access water will come out anyway, and will detoxify your body as it moves out of you via sweat and urine, so bonus anyway! In total, try and drink at least 64 ounces of water a day. Start with these:

  • Good Morning H2O – 16 oz.
  • Pre-Meal 30 (Breakfast)– 8 oz.
  • Pre-Meal 30 (Lunch)– 8 oz.
  • Afternoon Picker-Upper – 8 oz.
