Okay, we all know that drinking water is a good way to forget about eating between meals.
But you know what? The liquid element can help you lose weight in other ways.
But make no mistake. It’s not that you have to drink water every time your stomach roars. You have to drink water all the time. Well, okay, not all the time. In reality your hydration levels depend on your height, weight, activity and climate of the place where you live.
Either way, if you want to lose your stomach fat you have to drink more water than you are probably drinking. Here are 3 amazing facts that will force you to hit H2O more.
WATER WITH ICE IS MORE POWERFUL
If you drink very cold water you force your body to work harder to compensate for the low temperature. Warming a glass of 0.25 liters of ice water to body temperature burns about 7 calories, according to research published in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism. Drink 10 glasses of cold water per day for a week and burn 490 extra calories in a week.
DRINKING WATER HELPS YOU EAT LESS
A large glass of water helps you not to peck at any time of day: breakfast, lunch or dinner. As a study published in the journal Nutrition showed that people who drink a large glass of water half an hour before any meal can lose up to two kilos more than individuals who don’t.
COLD WATER BOOST YOUR METABOLISM
According to an American study, subjects who drank two full glasses of water experienced a 30% increase in their metabolic rate in only half an hour.
