Quint’s Quick Tips: Let’s Talk Water

I know last week I said we were going to talk more about changes that you can make on a daily basis that will boost your weight loss potential, however I forgot to talk about a very important subject: Water Consumption.  So next week we will jump back to the changes you need to make as I want to address this topic.

The base rule for water consumption is 8 – 8 oz glasses per day and while that is a great baseline, it is just that a baseline rule.  Keep in mind that each individual and body type vary, so baseline rules don’t always apply across the board.  Here’s my suggestion: Drink half your body weight in water per day and if you exercise add an additional 8 ounces of water per 30 mins of exercise to your plan.  So if you weigh 200 lbs and exercise for an hour a day, you would want to consume 116 ounces of water per day.

Why is your water consumption important, well like everything else in this world…WATER makes the world go round.  Your body requires water to function and there are benefits that water provide to you.  The benefits of water are:

  • Helps flush your system and promotes weight loss
  • Replenishes and moisturizes your skin, water also increases your skins elasticity
  • Helps reduce the risk of your muscles and/or joints from cramping or spraining
  • Flushes your system to allow your organs to function properly, in doing this it eliminates fatigue
  • Improves your digestion, which helps breakdown your foods and reduces constipation

So here is this week’s challenge, keep tracking the changes we have discussed and keep using the My Fitness Pal – Plus make sure you are consuming the appropriate amounts of water for your body size. Next week we will jump back to the small daily changes we can make to help promote your weight loss!
