The secret is so apparent it’s amazing many people miss it. This brings us to the fact that truthfully, it’s not really a secret but a fact that most people ignore!
I’m talking about making sure you stay hydrated and drinking the right amount of water each day. Tom Venuto, author of the best selling, “Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle” says this about water:
“If you’re even slightly hydrated (and most people are walking around in a constant state of semi-dehydration), your results and performance will improve instantly... Everyone has heard the maxim, ‘Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day.’ That’s a good starting point, but most of the time they don’t do it.. . . the effects are subtle but devastating to your training and weight loss efforts.”
This is a very powerful statement. It says to be that staying hydrated is crucial for your fat loss efforts. Here are some reasons why according to Tom:
-Every physiological process in your body depends on water. It’s the most abundant nutrient in your body. Failure to get enough affects negatively many body symptoms such as your body’s temperature, its ability to transport nutrients, and to build muscles. It’s also important for digestion, circulation, absorption, etc. Getting enough water is a must.
-Higher protein diets have a diuretic effect and require extra attention to drinking enough water. This is because the processing of protein foods generates metabolic waste which must be flushed out of the body by the kidneys; not getting enough water hinders the kidneys from doing their job.
-Water is essential to the entire fat burning process. Tom says that “One of the important functions of our kidneys is to eliminate toxic waste from your body through urine. When you are dehydrated, the body’s instinctive reaction is to hold on to whatever water it does have in order to survive. When this water retention occurs, the waste products in your body aren’t flushed out, and build up in your system. At this point, the liver will try to help out with the overload. When the liver helps out during fluid retention, it can’t do its own jobs as efficiently, one which is burning stored body fat for energy. The result is that your body may not be able to burn body fat as efficiently as normal.”
-Drinking lots of water does not make you retain water. As we have learned, getting enough water helps numerous body systems like the kidneys and liver be better able to do their jobs effectively.
Here are some examples Tom gives about how much water each of us should be drinking based on how much energy we are burning daily:
Calories expended Water required
2000 calories 66-100 0z
2500 calories 83-124 oz
3000 calories 100-140 oz
4000 calories 116-174 oz
5000 calories 132-199 oz
