4 Fast Fixes to Boost Your Weight Loss
1. DRINK MORE WATER We all know the benefits of drinking more water and staying hydrated in the summer. But did you know increasing your water intake induces the natural detox process that boosts healthy fat loss, and curbs sugar and carb cravings, too? Without enough water, the body will have you craving high-water content foods like fruits. That urge can easily be misread as a need for sugar and carbs, making them difficult to avoid. Lack of water can also affect the ability for food to move in and out of your system, which can affect your bowel movements and your body’s ability to detox.
The average person needs 3.5 liters just for processing food in and out and even more for detox. Bumping up your water helps to flush out fats and toxins, taking your health and wellness to the next level. But higher temperatures, exercise or outdoor activity can make staying hydrated especially difficult in the summer months.
