Water Consumption for Weight Loss

Helen Nowlan Clean Eating Eat Right Lose Weight Water

I wanted to share my hardest struggle when it comes to weightloss!.......drinking water. I am not the best water drinker at the best of times but now I am getting 2 litres in but in order to really achieve success i need to drink 1L to every 25kgs.  This means that I need to drink over 4L's a day. 

My day now feels like Work, tend to kids, drink water, pee, work, tend to kids, drink water, pee and so it goes all day.  Do we really get a benefit for this as this is harder work than my three year old and 19mth old.  Not to mention that in amongst all this drinking I need to try and exercise and cook dinner and spend quality time with my husband? 

Well I have done a lot of reading and it appears that it is very important. 
  1. Water makes up 75% of the brain
  2. Water regulates your body temperature
  3. Water makes up 83% of your blood
  4. Water removes waste
  5. Water composes 22% of your bones
  6. Water cushions your joints
  7. Water helps carry nutrients and oxygen to your cells
  8. Water moistens oxygen for breathing
  9. Water helps convert food to energy
  10. Water helps to protect and cushion your vital organs
  11. Water helps your body to absorb nutrients
  12. Water makes up to 75% of your muscles

So here are 12 reasons for me to keep going with trying really hard to achieve my water intake requirements.

Another incentive to lose weight, the lighter I get the less I have to drink smiley

Until next time............
