How does water affect my weight?
Our daily water intake correlates and is directly influenced by our daily water intake. If you only drink two or three glasses of water per day, chances are you’re only getting it when you feel thirsty. Did you know? by the time you feel thirsty, you are already quite dehydrated. So when that water enters your body, your body automatically stores it in anticipation of a long period before it gets water again and we all known water retention does nothing for the physique. Drinking the right amount of water is the biggest aide in weight loss. a Study conducted on South Africans revealed that if we continue drinking the amount of sugar-rich soft-drinks we already are, it’s projected that we will have 9 million obese adults in South Africa by 2017.
if that’s not eye opening to you then what will be? are you willing to pay the price by not drinking enough water?
