Our bodies are made up of more than 70% water therefore it is imperative you drink Water especially for fat burning.
There are many functions that water provides in the body but the main one that relates to fat burning is metabolism. Through the use of the liver your metabolism is what converts stored fat to energy. Another function of the liver is to pick up the slack for the kidneys which need plenty of water to function properly. If the kidneys are water-deprived, the liver has to do their work along with its own, lowering its total productivity. It then can’t metabolize fat as quickly or efficiently as it could when the kidneys were pulling their own weight. If you allow this to happen, not only are you being unfair to your liver, but you’re also setting yourself up to store fat.
The problem is that, though many decide to increase their water intake, very few stick with it. During the first few days of drinking more water than your body is accustomed to, you’re running to the bathroom constantly. This can be very discouraging. It seems that the water is coming out just as fast as it’s going in, and many people decide to stop their new hydration habit.
What is really happening is that your body is flushing itself of the water it has been storing throughout all those years of “survival mode”. It takes a while, but this is a beautiful thing happening to you. As you continue to give your body all the water it could ask for, it gets rid of what it doesn’t need. It gets rid of the water it was holding onto in your ankles and your hips and thighs, maybe even around your belly. You are excreting much more than you realize. Your body figures it doesn’t need to save these stores anymore; it’s trusting that the water will keep coming, and if it does, eventually, the flushing (of both the body and the toilet) will cease, allowing the person to return to a normal life. It’s true. This is called the “breakthrough point.”
In addition, water improves muscle tone. Combined with your weight training if your muscles are suffering from a drought, you won’t notice a pleasant difference in your appearance. Muscles that have all the water they need contract more easily, making your workout more effective, and you’ll look much nicer than if you had flabby muscles under sagging skin.
All in all drink more water, persevere with it and your body will thank you and aid in your fat burning results.
