Water, Water Everywhere ….

I have a theory that the reason drinking lots of water aids weight loss is due to the amount of trips made to the bathroom and therefore calories burned. Apparently this is nonsense but it sure feels that way today!

I’m on strict orders to drink at least 2 litres a day

Yes folks I’ve been told to drink more water by pocket rocket trainer Lauren and when Lauren says jump I ask “how high?” To be more precise I’ve been told to double my intake to 2 litres per day.

Apparently the benefits are numerous, so listed below are a selection found during indepth internet research (aka a 5 minute google search):-

  • There are no calories in water!
  • Dehydration can easily be mistaken by the brain for hunger. Therefore drinking water can sometimes help resist the urge to snack.
  • Your bones, muscles and organs all need water to perform at the optimum level.
  • A dehydrated body can hold onto water (retention) causing weight gain.
  • Drinking water aids the metabolism, the metabolism burns calories … hoorah!
  • It makes your skin look good.

And so on and so forth!

10 lbs down – woooo hoooo!

In other news I weighed in today at the gym and I’m happy to report things are moving in the right direction. See the Weight Loss link and October Goals and Progress for more.

Happy Sunday everyone!
