Tip #6: Water and Weight Loss.

30 Tips in 30 days. See better results, get better health.

There was a funny show, back in the day, called: Saturday Night Live, where the cook yells out; Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger. Fast forward to losing weight, and you’ll hear me yell out; water, water, water.

There is not a better morning routine that you can do than to add water at the start of your day, and here it is: brush your teeth, weigh yourself (optional), and have a glass of water.

How much water should you drink a day?

The rule of thumb will depend on your body weight. Start by taking your current weight, so let’s say you weigh 200 pounds, cut that in half, that’s 100. Now convert those hundred pounds to 100 ounces of water.

For a person who weighs 200 pounds, the ideal amount of water to drink in the course of your day would be 100 ounces.  I know this sounds like a lot of water, but as you gain better health, and shed pounds, your water intake is going to go down.

Bottom line: at the very least, drink 64 ounces of water, or decaffeinated drinks each day.

Stay away from adult beverages, like wine and beer while you’re in the weight loss phase.

Water, water, water.  Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  You’ll think clearer, your skin will look better, and you’ll improve your overall health, not to mention, it will help keep your appetite down which can help you lose weight.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.
