How Water Helped Me Lose Weight

In my last post I’ve wrote about my best buddy… a puppy… now it’s time to resume the main topic of this blog…

In the past, I’ve been very eager in testing everything I could get my hands on, just so I could become thinner. Without stepping on the weighing scale and simply looking at myself in the full-body mirror, I’m pretty sure I’m getting a lot closer to my standard of a fit body. I firmly believe my efforts from the previous months have paid off, and a lot of it I attribute to simply drinking lots of water.

How exactly did I end up weighing 5 pounds lighter in a month? There’s not much that I incorporated with consuming at least 8 glasses of water and limiting other beverages, aside from the normal 30-minute exercise per day and taking saffron extract. Yes, you can indeed take saffron extract for weight loss, though I found it a lot more effective if you don’t rely on a single method for cutting off those extra pounds.

I’ve read from a magazine that water has a number of therapeutic effects on our body, but what interested me is the fact that it can actually aid in weight loss. It doesn’t directly target those fats that you’ve been storing for quite a while around your belly or other noticeable body parts, but it helps with increasing your metabolism, especially when drinking it as soon as you wake up.

So what I did is drank water every time I get up from the bed in the morning. I also made it a point to consume at least 16 ounces of water daily. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I noticed that I’m not feeling as hungry as I did when I was still ignoring how important water is for the body.

After a whole month of doing this, I’m actually relieved. I never experienced this healthy feeling before, despite the same intensity of exercises I’ve engaged myself with. And the best thing is I won’t be eating as much because I’ve gotten used to drinking an entire glass of water whenever I can.
