Weight loss and water, what is science saying about this?

How Drinking Water Can Help You Lose That Unwanted Body Fat, health professionals and the medical field cannot deny all the science backing the benefits of drinking water to lose weight.

Know this, not all waters are the same

Research has shown for a long time now that water can help you loss body fat, in fact 30-50% adults who increase their water intake will lose weight.

Drinking water can make you burn more calories

The research listed below looked at the affect of drinking 17 oz serving of water, the public should be drinking daily 1/2 oz per pound of body weight min, an athlete should be drinking 1 oz per pound of body weight, my wife and I both drink 1.5 gal of electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it, this water is considered to be therapeutic to the body, because we drink this much water we do 1/4 tsp 3 times a day and add sea salt 1/4 tsp per quart to our water when we work out, to replace or electrolytes.

Drinking water will increase the amount of calories you will burn, which is known as resting energy expenditure.

In adults, resting energy expenditure has been shown an increase by 24-30% within 10 minutes of drinking water. This last at least 60 minutes.

Water-induced thermogenesis.

Water drinking induces thermogenesis through osmosensitive mechanisms.

Supporting this, one study of overweight and obese children found a 25% an increase of resting expenditure after drinking cold water.

Water-induced thermogenesis reconsidered: the effects of osmolality and water temperature on energy expenditure after drinking.

A study of overweight women examined the effects of increasing water intake to over 1 liter (34 oz) per day. They found that over a 12-month, this is resulted in extra (4.4) of weight loss.

Drinking water is associated with weight loss in overweight dieting women independent of diet and activity.

These women did not do any lifestyle change, except drink more water, these results make it very impressive.

Several other studies have monitored overweight people who drank 1-1.5 liters (34–50 oz) of water daily for a few weeks. They found a significant reduction in weight, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference and body fat.

Effect of excessive water intake on body weight, body mass index, body fat, and appetite of overweight female participants.

These results may be even more impressive when the water is cold. When you drink cold water, your body uses extra calories to warm the water up to body temperature.

Drinking Water Before Meals Can Reduce Appetite

Most of the public drink some type of fluid with their meals, not realizing it will affect the way they digest their foods, and cause issue down the road.

Our hydration protocol that we give to people who want to know more about electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2, explains the reason why you cannot drink any fluids with any main meal, not only for better digestion but it will also help you lose that unwanted body fat, the only thing you have to do is stop drinking all fluids with your main meal.

We have had multiple people tell us, once we started them on electrolyzed reduced water with hydrogen H2, drink a big glass 20 min before their meal, they claimed that drinking water before a meal reduced their appetite.

There actually seems to be some truth behind this, but almost exclusively in middle-aged and older adults.

Pre-meal water consumption reduces meal energy intake in older but not younger subjects.

Studies of older adults have shown that drinking water before each meal may increase weight loss by 2 kg (4.4 lbs) over a 12-week period.

Water consumption increases weight loss during a hypocaloric diet intervention in middle-aged and older adults.

Pre-meal water consumption reduces meal energy intake in older but not younger subjects.

In one study, middle-aged overweight and obese participants who drank water before each meal lost 44% more weight, compared to a group that did not drink more water.

Water consumption increases weight loss during a hypocaloric diet intervention in middle-aged and older adults.

Another study also showed that drinking water before breakfast reduced the number of calories consumed during the meal by 13%.

Water consumption reduces energy intake at a breakfast meal in obese older adults.

Since water is naturally calorie-free, it is generally linked with reduced calorie intake.

This is mainly because you then drink water instead of other beverages, which are often high in calories and sugar, when drinking enough water daily, 1 gal plus.

Plain water consumption is associated with lower intake of caloric beverage: cross-sectional study in Mexican adults with low socioeconomic status.

Water, hydration, and health.

Substitution of sugar-sweetened beverages with other beverage alternatives: a review of long-term health outcomes.

Observational studies have shown that people who drink mostly water have up to a 9% (or 200 calories) lower calorie intake, on average.

Water and food consumption patterns of U.S. adults from 1999 to 2001.

Impact of water intake on energy intake and weight status: a systematic review.

Drinking water may also help prevent long-term weight gain. In general, the average person gains about 1.45 kg (3.2 lbs) every 4 years.

Changes in water and beverage intake and long-term weight changes: results from three prospective cohort studies.

It is especially important to encourage children to drink water, as it can help prevent them from becoming overweight or obese.

Impact of water intake on energy intake and weight status: a systematic review.

Association between water consumption and body weight outcomes: a systematic review

A recent, school-based study aimed to reduce obesity rates by encouraging children to drink water. They installed water fountains in 17 schools and provided classroom lessons about water consumption for 2nd and 3rd graders.

After one school year, the risk of obesity had been reduced by a whopping 31% in the schools where water intake was increased.

Promotion and provision of drinking water in schools for overweight prevention: randomized, controlled cluster trial.

How much water should you drink per day, that depends on your activity, my wife and I both work out 6 days a week, we are active seniors in our med sixties, we both drink 1 to 1.5 gallons of electrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it. We recommend people who drink 1 gallon plus per day should add pink sea salt a couple times per day to their daily diet and add it to their meals to get the extra electrolytes(natural electrolytes not man made electrolytes supplements in a pill form or powder form).

When we work out we have our half gallon of electrolyzed reduced water with added sea salt, ¼ tsp per quart.

Many health authorities recommend drinking eight, 8-oz glasses of water (about 2 liters) per day, I personally feel this is enough for an adult, due to the excessive amounts of environment toxins they are consuming daily, most of the public is drinking the wrong kind of water, you have to detoxify the body daily to flush out the toxic chemicals your cells are storing at the cellular level, the water the public is drinking has no structure to it nor does have any antioxidants to neutralize the free radicals in the body, in other words the water will not detox the body daily, the only water that has this ability of detoxification daily is ekectrolyzed reduced water with molecular hydrogen H2 in it

Older people and breast-feeding mothers also need to monitor their water intake more closely, most older senior do not drink nearly enough water daily, water is a great way to slow pre-mature aging down.

As a good rule of thumb, prevent dehydration or being thirsty before is happens, most likely when you feel thirsty it’s too late, to prevent this from happening drink enough water daily.

If you find you have a headache, are in a bad mood, are constantly hungry or have trouble concentrating, then you may suffer from mild dehydration. Drinking more water may help fix this, most people that feel hungry right after they eat, aren’t hungry they are thirsty.

Mild dehydration affects mood in healthy young women.

Role of dehydration in heat stress-induced variations in mental performance.

Impact of mild dehydration on wellness and on exercise performance.

Water can be really helpful for weight loss.

It is 100% calorie-free, helps you burn more calories and may even suppress your appetite if consumed before meals.

The benefits are even greater when you replace sugary beverages with water. It is a very easy way to cut back on sugar and calories.

Now that you have seen the science behind why drinking enough water daily can help you lose that unwanted belly fat and body fat and all the health benefits that comes with it, is all waters the same, the answer to this question is “NO” Why? Most of the public is drinking plastic bottle water, city filtered water RO water, those so called alkaline water in plastic bottles, they all are contaminated with toxic chemicals that are causing you oxidative stress, inflammation and for your body to be acidic, the root cause to all diseases like cancer is inflammation causing your body to be acidic.

Check out these 2 short videos for the truth on the type of water the public is drinking.
