I'm asked every day if there's a "magic" pill out there...
something that will help shed that excess fat tissue and keep it
off for good.
What if I told you that there is something that's inexpensive,
readily available, safe, without side-effects, and just may be the
most effective fat loss substance anywhere?
What is this mystery substance?
This magic pill that you've been waiting for? Well, it isn't a pill
at all. It's good old water. That's right, pure H2O.
Water is without a doubt one of the most underrated and yet
dramatically effective keys to weight loss and, in particular, body
fat reduction. There's absolutely no denying that drinking a lot of
pure, clean water (8-12 glasses per day) will help you get and stay
Let me make it perfectly clear here that we're talking about plain
water... not soda, (which is loaded with sugar; even diet soda is
full of salt and chemical sweeteners) not coffee, tea, juice, blah,
blah, blah. None of these count. Just WATER.
Why is water such an effective fat loss aide?
1. Water seems to act as a natural appetite suppressant. In fact,
people on diets who do not increase their water intake will find
themselves feeling "hungry" much more often and more severely than
those who increase their water consumption.
One possible reason for this is that dieters are getting less water
from their food, because they're eating less food, so the body is
actually craving fluid. These cravings can be significantly curbed
with increased water intake.
2. Consuming enough water allows the kidneys to function optimally.
This in turn enables the liver to become more efficient at
metabolizing fat. The result is an increased fat burning capacity
in the liver.
3. When the body doesn't get sufficient amounts of water, it will
metabolically shift in a defensive and protective strategy to
"preserve" what it has. This can only result in a negative slowdown
of bodily functions and processes.
(Incidentally, something similar happens when you cut fat
completely out of your diet. The body compensates by holding on to
as much of its fat stores as possible, thus defeating the purpose.
This is why I recommend a nutrition program rich in "good" fats
which promote metabolism.)
In addition to fat loss, drinking adequate amounts of water also
has numerous other biological and physical benefits. Maintaining
healthy and vibrant appearing skin is an example of one such added
Bottom Line: drinking sufficient amounts of pure water should be
the first step in any serious fat reduction program.
