Water for weight loss? Sound weird but this fact is supported by the expert. How water can help dieting?
Water is a key component in metabolism process. Breaking down body fat and body muscle during weight loss produces wastes that must be eliminated through the kidneys. Drinking enough water is important to keep the kidneys functioning to remove these wastes. Popular high-protein diets produce more waste products from digestion, let alone from breaking down stored fat. Kidney function is even more important when on a high-protein diet.
Drinking a big glass of water whenever you feel hungry and before a meal or snack fills the stomach briefly and makes you feel fuller and stop eating sooner. If the dieter is drinking plain water, he/she is less likely to be drinking something with calories in it.
There are other theories suggest that drinking cold water will increase the metabolism because in order to warm the cold water, your body must use energy. When you use enough energy, you can lose weight. But there is no medical research to supports these theories yet.
