Water is life, but what if water was all you had? We've all thought of extreme diets, but maybe a water only diet is a bit too extreme for us. One thing is for sure, you will lose a lot of weight real fast. What else will you lose? Let's find out. We just wanted to clarify one thing: don't do this in real life. Otherwise all that's going to be left of you is some water.
The Importance of Water
Most of your body is water. Sure, you may see it as blood and other liquids, but each and every liquid in your body contains water as well. You can go on for more than a week without food but water is essential.
The Benefits of Water
We all know how necessary water is for our body to work, but most people do not realize how beneficial it can be. Water doesn't just provide support to our body, it also makes us healthier and more active. You need to hydrate properly if you want to be at your max.
It Helps with Weight Loss
We aren't just talking about only drinking water. If you drink lots of water you will lose more weight. This is one reason many people can't lose weight. They don't drink enough water, instead going for soft drinks and juices which do not do the same thing.
Water fills you up
You will end up eating less if you drink lots of water. Water fills up your stomach, which leaves less of it empty for food. This doesn't just make your stomach full - it also stops the stomach from sending signals to the brain making you eat more.
It is the best Detox
Water is also essential for your body's natural detoxing process to work. Your body passes on all the harmful things in the water. If you do not drink enough water all this stuff remains in your body.
Helps with Digestion
If you drink more water your body's metabolism speeds up. The better your metabolism, the better your body is at losing excess weight. See those people who seem to eat everything without gaining weight? It's because their metabolism is working great.
Water helps your whole body
Here's the deal: almost each and every beneficial natural process of your body depends on water. If you don't have enough water in your body none of your systems are working the way they should be. One by one your body's organs suffer.
It keeps your blood flowing
Water is also essential for keeping your blood thin. If your blood gets too thick it increases the chances of a heart attack. It also increases the chances of clots forming in the blood. Drinking enough water every day ensures that this doesn't happen.
It makes you smarter
If you drink more water you will become smarter. There's a very simple reason behind this: your brain needs a lot of blood and water to work. If you drink the right amount of water your brain power may go up 30%.
It makes your bones strong as well
You've probably only heard about how milk benefits your bones. Well, milk isn't the only liquid that helps. Water helps in forming a protective layer around your bones which can keep them from becoming brittle. This is why it is easier to get hurt when you're dehydrated.
It keeps you younger
People who drink more water age slowly. All that hydration makes sure that their bodies work at their peak efficiency, which makes the aging process slow. It helps your cells reproduce, which is a process that involves replacing old cells with the new, making you look younger.
Keeps stroke away
There is a direct correlation between people who drink water and people who have healthy hearts. It can keep strokes and many other heart problems at bay. So if you often get tired and get pain in your chest, you may just need to drink more water during the day.
Helps with joint problems
That's not all - all that water allows your body to lubricate itself properly and keeps your tissues strong. How does this matter? Well, it keeps joint pain away. People who drink more water have less instances of joint pain.
It keeps you going
If you are out and about on a sunny day you need water to keep running. This is something people don't realize - when you are dehydrated you can faint, and you can cause permanent damage to your body. Make sure you drink lots of water, especially on sunny days.
Keep on drinking!
If you want to live a long and healthy life make sure you keep on drinking water. Keep a bottle of water on your office desk as well so you can drink it all day long without needing to get up.
