Hydration is key for many factors that play a role in weight loss, including:

1. Water is a natural appetite suppressant ⏤ When the stomach senses that it is full, it sends signals to the brain to stop eating. Water can help to take up space in the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and reducing hunger. Drinking a glass of water before reaching for something to eat can help to curb unnecessary snacking.

2. Water increases calorie burning ⏤ Drinking cold water may further enhance water’s calorie-burning benefits, because the body expends energy {calories} by heating up the water for digestion.

3. Water helps to remove waste from the body ⏤ When the body is dehydrated, it cannot properly remove waste. Water helps the kidneys to filter toxins and waste while the organ retains essential nutrients and electrolytes.

4. Drinking water can reduce overall liquid calorie intake ⏤ It’s easy to accumulate liquid calories by drinking soda, juice, or sweetened coffee or tea. Replacing even a few high-calorie drinks each day for water or herbal tea may have long-term weight loss benefits.

5. Water is necessary to burn fat ⏤ Without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat or carbohydrates.

6. Water helps with workouts ⏤ One of the most important components of any weight loss plan is exercise. Water helps muscles, connective tissues, and joints to move correctly, as well as helps the lungs, heart, and other organs work effectively as they ramp up activity during exercise.
