The Recommended Daily Water Intake For Weight-Loss

Every cell tissue and organ in our body requires water to function properly. Most of our body is made of water and proper intake is necessary for our health.

Staying properly hydrated is also beneficial if you want to lose weight. Because when our body is dehydrated our metabolism slows down and lead to gaining more weight. According to Web MD, “being even 1% dehydrated can cause a significant drop in metabolism.”

Other then that water can help you prevent overeating. You can do so by consuming water right before a meal. According to Mercola, “Chronic dehydration may affect your organs and lead to kidney stones, cholesterol problems, constipation, and liver, joint, and muscle damage.”
