USING WATER TO SUPPORT HEALTHY WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day is one of the easiest, most important, tried-and-true weight loss tactics of all time because, in addition to keeping you hydrated, it can also help you feel full.


Water is essential—it regulates your body temperature, cushions your joints and helps your digestive system. You need water to perform at your peak, and feeling thirsty is a sign that your body is already on the brink of dehydration. 


TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Water consumption is key while you’re working out, but it’s also important to drink enough before and after exercise. On average, drink 17-20 ounces of water two hours before exercising, 7-10 ounces every 10-20 minutes during exercise and 16 ounces for every pound you lose from sweat afterward. Drinking enough water will help prevent dehydration while you’re working out, which can help keep you energized and potentially allow you to work out harder, which could mean burning more calories.

FIBER—JUST ADD WATER


Fiber can be a powerful weight management tool because it aids digestion and promotes fullness.

Fiber absorbs H2O, and swells in your stomach, giving a sense of fullness, which may help reduce the amount of food you eat.
