no substitute for water!
Beverages that simply contain water aren't good enough. juice, soda, tea, coffee
etc. counter the positive effects of water; some, in fact, may also be unhealthy.
For example, drinks containing caffeine stimulate your adrenal gland and dehydrate
your body of important vitamins and minerals. Beverages containing lots of sugars
stimulate the pancreas, boosting your insulin levels and taking your body out
of its natural fat burning state. Colas, in particular, contain caffeine, sugar,
sodium and acid that could eat through a coin. You should replace them with water
whenever possible and at least keep them at a low to moderate level.
and Weight Loss
Drinking water may is very important when trying to lose weight. Water contains
no calories, fat, or cholesterol and is low in sodium. It is nature's appetite
suppressant, and it helps the body to metabolise fat. Current research shows
that high water intake reduces the amount fat deposits. Without enough water,
the kidneys cannot function properly. As a result, some of their workload is
pushed off onto the liver, in turn preventing the liver from operating at peak
How does all this tie into weight loss?
Because metabolising fat is a primary function of the liver, and because the
liver can't function at peak levels when taking on the added workload from the
kidneys, less body fat is metabolised and more is stored. This leads to either
weight gain or reaching a plateau of weight loss. When dieting, we restrict the
calories we take in. By doing so, we lessen the total amount of water available
to our bodies since about 30% of the average person's water intake comes from
the food they eat. This gives us even more reason to raise our water intake.
