Lose 10 Pounds in a Week - Drinking Water and Weight Loss

Have you ever struggled to lose weight? Maybe you are on a diet program and you exercise everyday, but still fail to lose any significant weight. But wait a minute. There could be a reason why shedding excess pounds is so hard. Do you know that your body can store 5 to 10 pounds of water weight? Before you go on any weight loss program, let's discuss how drinking water and weight loss go hand and hand.

The problem why most people cannot lose weight is that they do not drink enough water. You must understand that the human body is roughly 70 to 75 percent water so you must give it what it wants. The body works in this manner. Let's say for instance you only drink 2 glasses of water a day. This clearly is not enough water for the body to function properly. The body needs that water to survive so it will go into "storing mode".

Once in storing mode, the body will collect as much water that it can out of juices, sodas and other drinking products. The body will even try to absorb water through your pores during a shower just to get what it craves. So the little water your body is collecting over time is being stored and stored, which causes an increase in weight.

So what is the solution? The solution is to drink plenty of water daily. At least 8 glasses of water throughout the day to keep the body hydrated. When your body adjusts to the constant flow of water its taking in it thinks, "Well I have plenty of water coming in, I can get rid of the excess". The body will then allow more water to leave the body, allowing you to lose the water weight that is holding you down.

It is recommended that before your start any weight loss program, you should drink plenty of water routinely. Drinking plenty of water will not only shed 10 - 15 pounds off of you quickly, it will also cleanse your body of radicals and contaminants.
