How many glasses of water do you drink a day?


  • Drinking a big glass of water whenever you feel hungry and before a meal or snack fills the stomach briefly and makes you feel fuller and stop eating sooner.
  • Breaking down body fat and body muscle during weight loss produces wastes that must be eliminated through the kidneys. Drinking enough water is important to keep the kidneys functioning to remove these wastes.
  • Drinking Water Briefly Increases Metabolism
  • Eight Glasses of Water a Day?

    The study provides some support for the general recommendation to drink eight glasses of water a day while dieting. For most people that would add a liter or two to their regular water intake. The extra calorie-burn would be about 100 calories a day if drinking 2 liters (2 quarts or 4 water-bottles full) more than usual.

    Seriously start drinking more water. It helps.

  17. Last year in December I stopped drinking anything but water for a few months. Along with eating right and intense cardio, I lost 30 pounds in the first two months. Nowadays I drink soda occasionally, but I still primarily drink water.

    Feels good man

  19. I've always loved a glass of water. Especially after a hot day when we used to go to the water park. If you were thirsty enough after all that play, then it tasted so sweet! Great info.!
