[Bulky communication vol.8] How to drink water to lose weight?

One of the points I always advise clients on dieting.

“Drink at least 2 liters of water a day, ideally 3 liters.”

is. This time I will explain the reason in detail.

Stay hydrated to keep your body functioning properly!

First of all, our human body is made up of about 60% water. The water contained in the blood carries nutrients, hormones, and enzymes to every corner of the body and has the role of excreting waste products in the body as urine. Also, our normal temperature is 36 to 37 degrees, but if our body temperature rises even by 2 degrees, we will get sick and even die. At that time, it is responsible for the necessary temperature regulation by discharging water as sweat.

As you can see, the function of water is essential for the body, and if it is lacking, the functions of the body will not work well.

And it is said that Japanese people generally lack water intake. The average intake is about 1.5 liters, while the body excretes about 2.5 liters per day. I drink more than that, so I’m fine. For those who think, alcohol is a diuretic, so it will drain the water in the body more than you ingested, so it will not be a hydration.

Since the amount of water that can be absorbed at one time is fixed, even if you drink a lot, it will just be discharged. So aim for 3 liters throughout the day! Drinking timing is after waking up, before meals, during meals, before and after exercise, and before and after bathing.

What is the cause of “water weight” that you often hear?

For those who think, “If you drink 3 liters of water a day, you’ll get fat.” Why does the word water weight exist even though water has zero calories?

This is related to salinity.

When the body consumes a lot of salt, it tries to retain water to keep the osmotic pressure in the body constant. So, if you take in water while eating only heavily seasoned food on a daily basis, it will accumulate water and appear in the body as edema . The correct expression is because I’ve been eating only rich food, so I’m bloating because I’m accumulating water.

Finally, drink water before you feel thirsty. When you feel thirsty, it is a warning from your body that is already dehydrated.

The ideal is to drink room temperature water.

Needless to say, juice contains sugar, which makes you fat, and coffee contains caffeine, which acts as a diuretic and does not keep you hydrated. Prepare your own bottle as a guide and drink how many bottles of this today! I think it will be easier to achieve the quota of hydration if you decide.

The most important thing is to set a low hurdle that you can clear and stick to it!
