Drinking water has always been thought to aid in losing weight. Pressure Coolers are here to help you work out fact from fiction.
Drinking Water Can Lead To Burning More Calories
Studies have proven that increasing your water intake throughout the day can increase the amount of calories you burn. This is known as resting energy expenditure. Several studies have proven that overweight people who drank between 1-1.5 litres of water a day for one month significantly reduced weight and BMI. From these studies we can see that drinking a serving of 0.5 litres of water may increase calories burned for at least an hour.
Many people claim that drinking water before meals can reduce their appetite. There is some truth behind this fact. Studies show that drinking water before each meal can increase weight loss by 2kgs over a 3 month period. Another study showed that drinking water before breakfast can decrease appetite and calories consumed by up to 13%.
How Much Water Should You Be Drinking?
Health authorities recommended that we drink 2 litres of water a day. However, if you are an active person it is advised that you increase this number due to loss of water through perspiration. Both the elderly and breastfeeding mothers are advised to drink more water too.
If you are suffering from a headache, mood swings, are constantly hungry or even have trouble concentrating you may be suffering from mild dehydration. Not to worry, drinking water can fix this.
