Drink Water—Lose Weight!

by Chalene Johnson

Drink Water—Lose Weight!
When you're exercising, you must increase your hydration level! Even very slight dehydration can slow your metabolism by 3 percent, or about 45 fewer calories a day, which in a year could mean weighing 5 pounds more than you need to. The key to hydration isn't how much you drink; it's how frequently you drink it. Don't wait for thirst to strike. Drink at least 16 ounces of water before you exercise. Drink 8 ounces an hour before and another 4 to 8 ounces every 15 to 20 minutes during your workout. Finish with at least 16 ounces over the course of two hours after you're done exercising.

I only recently started forcing myself to drink water, huge glass in the morning, huge glass before bed. I am such a bad hydrater. I did cut out diet soda so that's good, right?!

I keep a mug that hold 48 oz on my desk at work. I have 4 hours in the am to get it down and then refill it and then have 3 hours to get that done. With what I drink before work, and then at meals, it adds up.
