Water can reduce your weight! Try the tricks.

Do you want to reduce weight without sticking to a restrictive diet plan? Drinking lots of Water is the easiest way to burn the unnecessary fat you intake regularly. But how much water and when you need to drink varies upon individual food habit and way of living. Chances are you are not getting enough water.

Here is nitty-gritty of how you can hydrate your body throughout the day:

1. When and how much to drink water: Our normal meal plan usually calls for drinking 8 glasses of water a day. If you do exercise and want to speed up weight loss, you have to drink more and use a math. Drink 3 glasses after you wake up in the morning. Have half a glass of water before you have breakfast. You must include Juice or Water food in your breakfast. 1 glass of water you must drink right after you take bath. 2 glasses each time before taking lunch and dinner is necessary. After a work-out of more than 45 minutes or if you sweat heavily, you must drink 2-3 glasses of water. If you eat red food like meat, oil-fried food and bread, you must drink more to burn the excess calories.

2. Cut Salt intake: If you cut table salt from your meal, it will help you lose water weight quickly.

3. Replace a single meal with normal water: Skipping lunch is not a bad idea. Just drink unsweetened, unflavored water in its place. But make sure you have a heavy breakfast every day.

4. Sip unsweetened green tea or black tea:  Green or black tea without sugar is a watery food. It contains Polyphenols that activate a certain enzyme in the body. This enzyme dissolves excess fat content in the body.  Drinking 4 cups a day would help you reduce about 6 pounds in 8 weeks.

5. Drink additional water when you feel hunger pain: Drink some more water (at least 2-3 glasses) if you feel hungry. You can add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, cinnamon powder, bay leaves and ginger (in hot water only).

6. Consume watery fruits:  There are certain fruits and vegetables such as Watermelon, orange, cucumber, Strawberry, grapefruit, red bell pepper, apricot, apple, blackberry, lemon etc. which fulfill the fluid requirement of your body. Have these foods in between breakfast and lunch.

7. Consume hot and cold soup to boost your water consumption: Leave aside your store-bought soup sachet. Make a healthy soup at home with blended veggies with its broth. Evening is the best time to have soup. It can boost your desire to drink more water.
