Water is so important, not just for losing weight, but also for healthy skin and hair. You should drink approximately eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. With exercise, water adds to weight loss; it keeps you well hydrated, and makes sure that you are filling up on a zero calorie item rather than high calorie sugary drinks.
Some fruits and vegetables are high in water content so if you consume a lot of these items you might not need to drink as much water every day. Generally speaking you need to consume approximately 64 ounces of water each day in order to have healthy skin and hair, and also to maintain a healthy weight. Everyone is different so when you are considering how much water you should drink it doesn’t hurt to consult a physician or dietician.
It is important to remember that drinking water alone will not help you lose weight; you also need to be physically active. If you simply increase the amount of water that you are drinking then you will put on what is called water weight, which will leave you feeling bloated, and give you a pudgy a look.Drinking water along with losing weight will also help make your health better, increases your energy, give you a healthy skin tone, and make your eyes seem bright and clear. Water is not a miracle cure, or magical elixir, instead it is pretty straight forward. By flushing out the toxins in your body water can help you feel and look healthier. It also improves blood flow and circulation; it also carries nutrients to every cell in your body and adds necessary lubrication to your joints.
When you feel and look healthier you will start to find that you have more energy, and the physical activity that you are involved in the more you energy you will have. Increased blood flow due to the water in your diet and the exercise will give you an energy boost. It is important to keep in mind though with increased physical activity you should increase your water intake, eight 8-ounce glasses of water might not be enough.
