Been a while since we’ve talked my Stronger Everyday Bootcamp but today not going to talk about the great workouts or the trainers. Nope today its going to be about the weekly emails I get from their amazing owner Georgie with the good health reminders 🙂
The one I got about good ole H2o though is probably one of the easiest and most useful to follow as we’ve all heard we should drink up to 8 glasses of water a day right but do we know why?
According to Stronger Everyday Bootcamp, here are 3 compelling reasons as to why drinking a minimum of 64 ounces of water a day will help you drop pounds and achieve a stunning transformation and more.
1-Water Aids Fat Metabolism In The Liver…your liver is a filter for your body so when you aren’t drinking enough water, your liver accumulates a build up of waste product that slows the process of fat metabolism down.
2-Water Helps Balance Hormones…when your body enters a state of dehydration, your organ and digestive functions are compromised, which in turn negatively impacts hormonal balance. This stress, brought on by dehydration, impacts your adrenal glands, signaling the need for an increase in cortisol, which encourages your body to begin storing fat, rather than burning it.
3-Water Reduces Calorie Intake…by drinking a minimum of 64 ounces of water daily, your desire for high calorie, sugary drinks like soda and high fructose juices will diminish and this decrease in fattening calories really adds up!
In addition to weight loss, drinking water has an infinite number of benefits including improved skin complexion, boosted immune system, cleansing toxins out of the body, etc.
Also when you’re dehydrated, your body becomes sluggish, tired, and even irritable which means productivity is out the window. So the next time you feel tempted to hit the vending machine for a “pick-me-up” sugar filled snack during the 3pm slump, try chugging a tall glass of water. You’ll see your energy and mood get the boost it needs to power through the day.
