Are you someone who is desperate to lose weight? Are you tired of trying out a lot of things to no avail? If that is the case, you are not the first person to experience that. I have tried numerous things so I can cut some pounds in my body. Guess what? Everything failed. I weighed 65kg, and it frustrates me when I see myself in the mirror. A friend suggested water therapy, and I was like, “are you serious? I’m not sick with the flu! I’m desperately trying to lose weight!” My friend just laughed and told me to just try it out since I’m already desperate. I gave it shot and here’s how I lost extra pounds in my body by just drinking water.
1. Water burns those calories
Have you heard of resting energy expenditure? It’s the calories you burn when you’re not even doing anything. If you drink at least half a liter of cold water, it will use calories to keep your body warm. So the more cold water you sip, the more calories will be utilized and burned. Half a liter of cold water will burn more calories for the next one hour.
2. Reduce your appetite
If you drink water before a meal, it will decrease your appetite drastically. The water will make you feel full. If you are too full to eat, then you will intake less food. You will not consume many calories, and it will result in weight loss.
3. Zero calorie intake
Compared to other beverages, the water has zero calories. Other drinks that are high in sugar can increase your weight, but if you stick with water, you can drink as much as you want without having to think of how much is the calorie content of the drink.
After I have tried this water therapy for at least one week, my weight dropped to 63kg. Since I am so happy with the result, drinking water became a habit for me. I’m proud to say that I am now at my 48kg weight.
