By far the most important and yet the easisest way to accelerate your weight loss results is to hydrate consistently. There is more research on the positive effects of hydration on weight loss than you can imagine...so I won't bore you with the detailes! After all, you are a busy person, right?
Let's just say that water is the most critical element in maintaining and facilitationg your body's chemistry ( after oxygen, of course ). strip your body of water, and it will stripp you of your health, energy, and ultimately, your life!
The generally advised 8 glasses a day are enough if you are an " average " person: 5'8", 160 lbs. male in good shape! Idoubt this applies to you, or else you wouldn't be interested in weight loss, right?
So, what's the bottom line?
To stay properly hydrated, you must drink a minimum of 7 oz. of pure ( not tap ) water for every 10 lbs. of body weight. More if you're active, work out, or live/work in a dry place. that's 105 oz. of pure water if you weigh 150 lbs....just over 3 liters. And don't try to climb Mt. Everest in one day : GRADUALLY work your way up to the amount that's right for you.
One more thing: get yourself a good water filtration system. This is not only the most cost effective way to get pure water, but it's probably your best for getting good quality water.
Finally, to make hydration more effective, all water you drink should be alkaline water. Alkalizing your water not only adds oxygen to your water, but it also helps neutralize the acids that make you fat. One of the best ways I know of to alkalize your water is through alkalizing agents like Prime pH ( check out www.InnerLightSuperGreens.com ).
Avoid Coffe, Tea, Soda, And Other Acidic Drinks.
