You need to consume 8-10 eight-ounce glasses of water each day. Water not only keeps you hydrated, but it cleanses your kidneys, and helps you lose weight.
Here are a few of the ways drinking plenty of water will help you lose weight and improve your heart health:
- Water will "swell" the fiber in your stomach which increases satiety (feeling of fullness).
- Water promotes decreased fat storage.
- "Rinses" sodium from your system. Sodium causes water retention, which cause your scale to read a higher number than you may like. Cleansing your system of sodium is also beneficial if you struggle to control high blood pressure.
