Water and Weight Loss: How It Helps

From myfitnesspal.com | By Cindy Ma

Excerpt: “Water is an essential nutrient that makes your body run smoothly and efficiently. Because the average adult’s body is about 65% water, it’s no wonder that we can only survive for about 3 to 5 days without it! Water transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, carries away waste products and lubricates our digestive tracts, joints and cartilage. The Health and Medicine Division of the National Academies of Sciences suggests an adequate total fluid intake of about 13 cups per day for men and about 10 cups per day for women. (Keep in mind that you may need more or less, depending on activity level, body size and environment.)”

From curbing hunger and keeping your mind sharp to powering your workouts and more, this zero-calorie drink is a liquid asset, especially for weight loss.
