Lose Weight WITHOUT Dieting: Tip #64 – Drink Lots of Water

It has long been suggested that drinking copious amounts of water can help you lose weight.  It’s true for several reasons.  First, we all know that exercise is an excellent way to burn calories, increase your metabolism and lose weight.  However, maintaining a successful exercise regimen requires significant fluid intake, which should include both water and sports drinks (when exercising for more than an hour).  Second, whether you exercise or not, you need to drink considerable amounts of water to stay hydrated.  This is important because dehydration slows the fat burning process.  It also causes a decrease in your metabolism (the number of calories you burn at rest). 

Third, by replacing soft drinks, juices and other sugary drinks with water, you can significantly reduce your daily caloric intake.  You may also reduce the amount of calories you take in during a meal by drinking water before and during that meal.  So drink up and watch the fat melt away!
