The Water Diet - How to do it

You can use the water diet to lose weight and improve your health at the same time.

In recent years people have tried many diets and different techniques to achieve their appropriate weight.

Most of the time people have lost a lot of weight using diets, sadly it doesn’t last long. The greatest mistake people do when trying to lose weight is to look at their dieting efforts as something temporary. They have to realize that if they want it to last they have to keep going at it. The only way to establish a habit is too keep doing it every day until it becomes a part of your life.

The water diet is a bit different from any other diet and you can certainly make some modifications to suit your needs.

This diet consists in exactly drinking water. That sounds very simple but there are a few details that you must know. The diet requires drinking approximately 64 oz of cold water a day. The best way to do this is to spread the amount in 8 glasses of water of 8 oz during the day. Do not try to drink it all at once as it can harm you.

You are probably thinking why the water has to be consumed cold? The answer to this is quite simple.

Glass of waterYour body will use energy to heat up the water to its normal temperature which is about 98.6°F (37°C). Using that energy to heat the water will burn up several calories. The colder the water the more calories will burn; however, you have to be careful not drink it extremely cold as it can be harmful.

The water used has to be preferably distilled.
The reason for this is to be able to remove the toxins from your body in the most efficient way possible.

Drinking the recommended amount of water will help your kidneys purify your blood which can aid in preventing conditions like kidney stones and hypertension.

One of the best things about the water diet is that you do not necessarily have to make alterations to your meals in order to use it.

One modification you can do to increase the calorie burning power of the diet is to use water fasting. As you can imagine it means no eating for a day and you can only drink the required amount of water. Doing this will burn a great deal of calories and the detoxification effect on the body is even more powerful.

You can use water fasting for 2 days a week (at maximum) in an alternate manner. Do not use the fasting more than a day in a row as it can weaken your body significantly.

Talk to your doctor before considering the water fasting.
