Whether it is a medical diet, or a weight-loss diet or a whole healthy eating plan combined with exercise, none of them skips the recommendation to replace sweet drinks or soft drinks with a lot of water or, at most, natural tea. The water is the main ally in the fight against kilos and body toxins. Springtime is a good season for such diets, this is why we believe it is important to know the role played by the water in the body’s transformation process.
1. 100% natural detoxifier
Every day we consume more than 3500 toxic substances that have to be processed by the internal organs very quickly in order not to cause diseases or slow the metabolic processes. The water is a key factor for carrying nutrients, but also toxins: the noxious substances accumulated in the adipose tissue are taken over by the blood and the lymphatic system and sent to the liver and kidney for processing and elimination. The quicker the transfer from the adipose tissue, the more easily it will be eliminated. More detailed information here.
A glass of lukewarm water with lemon on your empty stomach regulates and stimulates digestion and toxin elimination.
2. Feeling of satiety
Probably the water’s quality most often invoked in support of diets is that it gives you a satiating feeling and may compensate the need for a snack. Actually, many times, the body does not make the difference between hunger and dehydration, being tempted to eat something instead of having a glass of water. So if you have just eaten and you would have a bite, try to drink a glass of water and notice the effect.
Don’t worry: you will not retain water if you drink more. On the contrary, the water retained in tissues is a sign of dehydration, so you should drink more and avoid salt.
3. Water helps you doing sports
For a really-effective weight-loss diet, anyone recommends sports as the main activity to be in good shape. The water is the only drink recommended after a strenuous effort, and the quantity must be supplemented depending on how difficult the workout is.
The sparkling mineral water compensates the most quickly for the minerals lost through sweat after one hour of workout, but it is preferable to drink one hour and a half after the end of the sports activity in order to give the body the break to recover and to assimilate minerals.
4. The water tones, regenerates and improves the skin
The human body contains, in average, 65% water, and a skin properly hydrated looks much healthier and is protected against aging for a longer period. The water is the main ally against the cellulite and acne, thanks to her purifying cleansing effect over the whole body and hydration contributes to a deep restful sleep that heals both the epidermis and the whole body. A glass of water half an hour before sleeping ensures optimum hydration and a deep rest so that the body can recover and efficiently regulate its processes.
5. Vitamins and minerals
The spring asthenia weakens even the most active ones. This is why, besides the salads and vegetables that are at the market once spring comes, we can help the body to shake off the winter lethargy much more easily and naturally, with no supplements if not necessary. A litre of sparkling mineral water contains up to a third of the necessary calcium and magnesium we need every day. Along with the salads and healthy food, it is very easy to fill up with the necessary substances to be in really good shape.
Having the above in mind, we wish you good luck if you are to follow a diet or a weight-loss diet and we are waiting for you to take us on your journey to a healthy body
