They only drink I have consumed has been water. I literally haven't had any kind of drink with sugar since last month.
Should I start incorporating juices instead of good ol water?
Water can't hurt you. i repeat, water cannot hurt you. I'm a wrestler, and often cut weight, fluctuating between 170 and 160 lbs. I don't have any fat, but at the beginning of the year i do, and to get rid of it i do heavy cardio. i know you've probably been told a thousand times that diet change won't give you huge leaps and bounds in weight loss, but make sure that you are doing cardio to the point where you sweat, and are thirsty. The more water you drink, the better.
good luck man!
Water always helps with fat loss because now that you're drinking water you are now cutting on those sugary drinks which add to your fat anyway. Water has really made such a difference in how I look and feel. Soda would always have the worst effects on me so I can't imagine drinking something other than water now.
Yes, water is crucial to weight loss.
Mainly because it helps regulate every other system of the body, digestive, circulatory, and every other. Otherwise our bodies wouldn't be made of 70% water.
Then, when you drink water throughout the day it will help you to have the feeling of a full stomach, also since water is not at the body temperature your body will have to 'work' in order to make it that way, so more calories spent...
I think water is very helpful. Besides being important to many functions in your body, it also helps you feel full (there have been studies about people drinking two cups of water after waking up and before meals in the health magazines I read). Also, if you're dehydrated your body can actually mistake your thirst for hunger. Crazy, right?
Try not to go for those fruit juices...many of them have A LOT of added sugar, some are bad for your teeth, etc. Once in a while is okay, but don't really go crazy with it.
And keep drinking water...it helps regulate your metabolism and many systems of your body. Plus, if you drink more at meals and stuff you will feel more full and curb your appetite a bit.
When I have a sweet tooth, I'll just take some water and mix in a bit of those water flavor thingys and I'm pretty satisfied after that. But yes, KEEP DRINKING WATER.
When I put myself on a diet, I avoided carbonated drinks as well as juice drinks...I read somewhere that sugar does not really do a very good job in helping you lose weight...hence, I have removed them from my list of "good things" for weight loss drinks. As long as you stick to the water therapy and couple it with a good diet and exercise, you should be ok.
Sugar and carbohydrates (carbs are reduced to sugar in the body) is what makes us fat as it drives insulin which shuttles energy to fat cells.. Cut out the sugar and carbohydrates and fat gain is actually quite difficult.When I put myself on a diet, I avoided carbonated drinks as well as juice drinks...I read somewhere that sugar does not really do a very good job in helping you lose weight...hence, I have removed them from my list of "good things" for weight loss drinks.
