How to Diet with the White Water to Lose Weight

It sounds familiar, but it means a diet with water exists. More precisely, consuming more water can help you lose weight faster. There are very many methods of diet, of course. And the most simple of course with due regard to "calories in" and "calories out" (the body must burn more calories than the calories that go). Leah Kaufman, RD, a nutrition expert on weight control division of NYU Langone Medical Center reveals that how much a person consumes water a day will determine how many calories are burned in the day's success.

Before doing this water diet, first one must know the nature of the water diet itself. As with any diet method very much, how diet with water itself varies. There are really fasting (not eating any food, only drinking water alone) to just make sure that the water you drink has a cold temperature (because the body will burn extra calories to "warm up" the water so that it meets our body temperature).

Another way is to consume two glasses of water before meals and followed by a low-calorie diet. Whatever variation water diet, researchers found that the individuals who practice water diet lost weight up to 2.5 kilograms more than those who consume little or no water.

Keep in mind that this water diet methods work best when done in a short time. As well, the water diet is safest done when coupled with a normal diet (such as food combining diet or low calorie diet). Drink water without eating any food can be dangerous, especially for those who have a physical condition that is not so excellent. Before you go on a diet of water, one must be sure of his physical condition because this diet method is not guaranteed to be safe for everyone. When on a diet of water, a person is more susceptible to a decrease in blood sugar levels (which is visible from the onset of symptoms such as dizziness and fatigue), constipation, dehydration, and intolerance to cold temperatures. If you have health problems relating to the maintenance of normal blood sugar levels, this diet method may not be suitable for you.

In addition, this diet method tends to be "yo-yo", which means that people who do this diet may experience rapid weight loss and significant. However there is the possibility of weight back on quickly as well. Those were the things that you need to make the following considerations before making a diet of water, the ways- how will be reviewed in the following explanation.

Step By Step How to Diet with Water

Before practicing this diet method (and the method of any diet), make a realistic goal. It is impossible to lose weight as much as possible in the shortest possible time, because it's not the way a healthy diet. First weigh your weight now and remember to always consult with health professionals before making any diet. Below are the steps diet with water that you can apply:

1. Get the right dose of the water volume

A common unit used to express the weight in Indonesia is the kilogram. First of all, you need to change your weight measurement results in kilograms to pounds. One kilogram is equivalent to 2.2 pounds. So, if you weigh 75, you'll get 165 pounds (75 x 2.2).

Once you know your weight in pounds, I know how much water you should consume per day is very easy, which is half of your body weight in pounds expressed in ounces of fluid.

Thus if your weight in pounds is 165, then the water you should consume per day is 82.5 fluid ounces (165: 2). After that change the unit of fluid ounces to milliliters. One fluid ounce is equivalent to 30 milliliters. Then, 82.5 fluid ounce is equivalent to 2475 milliliters (82.5 x 30) or approximately 2.5 liters. Two and a half liters of this amount of water should you drink per day.

2. When should drink water?

The second step of the way with water diet is to notice the frequency of drinking water a day. Make drinking water as the first thing you do after waking up in the morning, and drink two glasses of water 30 minutes before eating. Satiety when your stomach is filled by previous water will prevent you from eating too much.

When you feel hungry, drink some water will help your mind to determine if you are really hungry or just craving alone. Research conducted in 2015 ago from the University of Oxford found that adults who suffer from obesity, when they drank 500 milliliters of water 30 minutes before a meal, it will eventually consume less calories and lose weight 11 kilograms more. A goodly number of fantastic is not it?

How to drink water after eating? Many say that after drinking water or when eating is not good for health. But actually drink water after eating can help the digestive system work more optimally and prevents constipation.

Likewise with drinking water after exercise. After exercise, our bodies enough fluid even though we do not feel thirsty (the new man must feel when he has lost two percent of body weight in the form of body fluids). Athletes consume 1.5 to 2.5 cups of water more than recommended in point number 1.

3. Use bottled water for drinking

To support how diet with water, provide water bottles. If possible, use a water bottle that has a dose volume in the body of the bottle. It is important to monitor how much fluid you consume that day. It is also important to choose a bottle that is BPA-free drink, so that your body is not contaminated by harmful chemicals. You can choose a bottle of drinking water from any material (plastic, metal, or glass) as needed. But keep your water bottle with you pretty strong, not easily spilled, and allow it to carry anywhere.

4. Drink water every 2 hours

From the explanation in the previous step, now you have to practice to drink water after waking up, 30 minutes before meals, after meals, and after exercise. Now look at your water bottles. There is still plenty of water left? Do not worry, you can drink it every two hours. It is important for the body to drink water gradually to prevent the body of excess fluid.

According to the Riverside Health System, the simplest way to find out how many hours each of us should consume fluids is by looking at the color of urine. Ideally urine pale yellow. If your urine is dark yellow, this is a strong indication that your body requires more fluid intake.

5. Do light exercise

The focus of this water diet is to lose weight, but exercise is nonetheless important because it plays a major role in shaping the muscle mass (so that the body does not look wrinkled though much reduced weight) and helps burn calories.

How diet with water itself does help burn calories. This is evident from a study published in The Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism, which shows that drinking 500 milliliters of water can help increase the metabolic rate by 30 percent. Researchers later concluded that increasing fluid intake to 1.5 liters a day will increase daily calorie burn by 200 calories.

If you are already accustomed to exercising regularly, keep the habit. If you do not have the habit of regular exercise before, start by walking at least 30 minutes a day. Keep in mind that exercise only if you also consume other foods. Exercising when only water without food intake will drain your metabolism, which makes you more prone to problems decrease blood sugar levels, which may impact would be dangerous for you.

6. Add flavor to your water

Do not be surprised, but people who do not like to consume water because it "does not have a sense of" do exist (perhaps you are one of them). Nonetheless, you can still do something to make a diet with this white water is more fun. One of them is by adding flavorings in your water.

You can use effervescent electrolyte that taste like lemon or raspberry. The effervescent electrolyte has a double benefit: to increase the flavor of the water itself, and mineral content can help increase bone density. Avoid adding sugar to the water you just so your water taste better.

Not only sugar contains high calorie diet that makes you be in vain, but it can also lead to fluctuations in blood sugar that can increase your risk of developing diabetes in later life. In the end, add the sugar in the diet will make you actually gain weight.

7. Green Tea and water in another form

The good news is, you can consume water in the form of the other and thus how diet with water you practice not too boring. Alternatives that you can try is to add water in green tea. Green tea has long been known as a natural antioxidant and contains flavonoids that can increase your body's metabolism. The thing to remember in making green tea is to avoid added sugar in any form.

In addition to green tea, you can also get fluids from the consumption of fruits high water content, as well as soups. Consume vegetable soup is not only to obtain benefits in terms of rehydration fluids, but also get the vitamin and mineral-rich of vegetables into their constituent material.

How diet with water with measures as described above you can also barengi with a low calorie diet. This is because the water diet are "yo-yo" or weight will quickly descend but also rapidly rising. When only drinking water, the body tends to take nutrients from the muscle instead of fat. That's why you should still be encouraged to exercise (to maintain muscle mass). That is why also you are encouraged to eat foods low in calories, so weight loss can be more lasting. Interested in trying?
