Why I Drink My Weight In Water

What most people don’t realize there are many benefits of drinking our weight in water. Water can help boost the immune system in many ways and help cleanse your body of wastes. Drinking water everyday is part of my Wellness Regimen. Most people find, by drinking water they are also able to lose weight naturally. Half the time, the body thinks its hungry when really it is thirsty. I always tell my clients Water first, and to always start the day drinking 16oz. The weight loss aspect comes from drinking a lot of water, the body will stop retaining as much. More water more weight loss. Drinking water daily can also help with factors such a,s having more energy and mental focus will increase.

To figure out how much water your body needs a day is your body weight divided by 2. I personally drink 82 oz a day to maintain my health, weight, and skin. This can prevent the body from not going into dehydration mode. When the body is dehydrated it can cause the skin to prematurity wrinkle and be vulnerable to skin disorders. Dehydration can lead to an imbalance of Electrolytes. The importance of electrolytes are they generate cell electricity from Sodium and Potassium.While, drinking water can help with weight loss, it is very ideal to help the functions of the kidneys as well. If they Kidneys don’t function waste products can build up in the body causing damage or failure of the organ or organs. The kidneys help to balance out the Electrolytes in the body to regulate it and keep it stable.

Fun Fact: Adults are 60% Water, and our blood is 90% water .
