Dr. Geri from Ideal You Weight Losss discusses the importance of drinking water for weight loss in this health tips video.
Our body is 50-65% water. In order for every cell in our body to function properly, we need to be hydrated. Hydration powers digestion, circulation, controls our body temperature, and so much more.
Things like sugar, salt, and caffeine dehydrate our body. The best way to hydrate is to drink pure, non-tap water with healthy mineral electrolytes. Substituting water for soda, juice, and other drinks not only hydrates you, but prevents you from putting unneeded and unhealthy calories into your body.
The recommended amount of water per day varies based on the size of the person, but shoot for about 64-115 ounces of water daily. So, if you want to lose weight, put down the can of pop and pick up a glass of water.
