You guessed it...water! Here are 4 great reasons to fill your glass to the brim with crystal clear water:
- Staying hydrated enhances weight loss - When you are hydrated, you are less likely to reach for food. Drinking water with your meals also helps to digest foods properly and enable your body to detoxify your system.
- Drinking water prevents dehydration - Did you know that 85-90% of Americans are dehydrated? What happens when you are dehydrated? We overeat! Most people's first response to dehydration is to eat, so do yourself a favor and grab for a glass of water first and then evaluate whether or not you are hungry.
- Filling your stomach with water before meals prevents overeating - Drink at least 1 8-ounce glass of water prior to each meal and snack during the day. You'll be amazed at how much less you eat!
- Quenching your thirst with water hydrates your skin, giving it a more youthful glow - Don't we all want to look and feel younger? Well, water is your magic bullet!!
Shoot for drinking 8 8-ounce glasses of water per day, and more if you exercise. I suggest drinking water with each of your meals and snacks for ease of consumption.
