Getting Into the Drinking a Lot of Water

posted on 24 July 2011 | posted in Healthy Lifestyle


I always thought that drinking a lot of water was just a way to cut calories and that drinking water was not nearly as important as it is...then I realized that it has many other benefits. Drinking water does many things, gets you moving, keeps you hydrated, and helps you keep off the pounds. Drinking water is a staple to living a healthier and more energized lifestyle.

Once you introduce more water into your lifestyle, a healthier and more fitness friendly lifestyle will follow. Of course, drinking soda and sugary drinks are bound to help you add on the pounds, this is no secret, but no one ever realizes the other effects it has on your body. The sugary drinks are weighing you down, literally. A soda has more sugar and calories then are necessary, and most people reach for a soda when they are thirsty. In actuality, this soda is causing you to be more dehydrated. It is an endless cycle that will add calories, extra weight, and could lead down the road to diabetes and other heart related illnesses. By adding more water into your diet, the body is refreshed.

Once the calories are cut, and the water is in the system, we can move on to the other benefits of drinking water. By drinking water, it does save calories, but it also helps your skin get that hydrated glow. Dehydrated skin is going to make you look older, and lets face it, no one wants that! Drinking water helps with hydration on the insde, as well as the outside. Drinking water also helps with headaches, and moodiness. It balances out your body and helps you feel better. Many people confuse hunger with dehydration. These same people, then overeat, and feel lethargic. Drinking water does the opposite, it energizes you. Once you feel better and have more energy, you are more willing to get out and do things.

By being properly hydrated, you can feel good, look good, and finally live your life to the fullest. It seems silly...but it is true, drinking water is the best fitness tip there is.
