One of the best ways to improve the results of your diet is to increase your water intake. Water diets have proven results and improve the effectiveness of your regular diet. A proper water filtration unit and dispenser can help you feel better and shed that holiday weight. Here are the steps to improving your lifestyle and your waistline:
Drink a Glass of Water Before Every Meal
The idea behind the water diet is to curb your appetite and aid metabolism by keeping yourself extremely hydrated. Ideally, you are supposed to drink an entire glass of water before, during, and after your meals to help with portion control. Drinking this much water also facilitates digestion and improves weight loss results. Studies have shown that drinking a glass of water with every meal has more effective weight loss results with adults thank with young adults.
Drop the Soda Pop
Replacing sugary drinks with water is a fantastic weight loss tip. Not only are you decreasing your sugar consumption, but you are also properly hydrating yourself. Sodas, alcoholic beverages, artificial juices, and other high-calorie drinks quickly add up; by replacing these drinks with water — a zero calorie alternative — you can drastically cut your calorie intake and appropriate those calories for something you are actually craving!
Drink Cold Water to Speed Your Metabolism
Studies have shown that drinking cold water speeds up your metabolism because your body expends energy to heat up the water to body temperature. Men burned fat to warm water up while women burned carbohydrates. Our water filtration units come with both hot and cold water settings, providing you with clean cold water at the touch of a button.
Matching your Alcohol
Match your alcohol consumption with water consumption. Drink a glass of water for every alcoholic beverage you have; this should be done in addition to your daily water intake and should not be counted as part of it. Not only does this help you keep the beer belly off, but it will also stave off the hangover.
At this point you may be thinking, “Wait… doesn’t water cause bloating?” Water causes bloating when paired with salt. Try reducing the amount of salt intake so that you also lose your water weight.
The last thing you want when taking on a water diet is to have other toxins in your water. A bottleless water filtration unit from Mirex guarantees that you have clean, pure water for your diet. For more information about our water systems, please visit our site.
