Why H2O Is So Important

May 15, 2016

Our body is made up of 70% of water. Drinking water may be the most important piece to any fitness and weight loss goal. Water helps eliminate toxins through urination, acts as a transporter and carries nutrients into cells as well as prevents dehydration.  Water plays a major role in how every single cell, tissue and organ in our body operates and is important for bodily functions, such as, fat metabolism and oxidation.

The big question: How does water consumption tie into fat burn?

Metabolizing fat is a primary function in your liver.  If dehydrated, the liver cannot function properly and can not metabolize fat efficiently, leading fat to store in the body.  This could be a result of weight gain and/or plateau of weight loss.
Your challenge this week is to, drink a glass of water (with lemon if desired) right after you wake up, before coffee, tea or breakfast - straight water, first!  Then during the duration of your day, your challenge is to consume at minimum 64 oz (8 cups). With hydration and awareness of water consumption, we promise only good things will come!
