Water Therapy for Weight Loss

Sugar substitutes present in low-calorie drinks stimulate appetite.

Water is absolutely necessary for humans, as water helps hydrate the body.  If you don’t drink enough water, you could end up contaminating yourself with your own toxins.  This could cause excess body fat and digestive problems, among other things.

Drinking large amounts of water a day could curb your appetite, help muscle development, and increase your metabolism.  You can reach sufficient water consumption by simply changing a few daily habits.

Which water is best?

Fresh, non-carbonated water is the best option, as this provides optimal hydration.  You should avoid drinks with caffeine and added sodium, which are found primarily in flavored water, and can counteract the hydration effect of fresh water.

Avoid low-calorie mixed drinks, because these contain sugar substitutes that stimulate the appetite.  This causes you to crave carbohydrates, which can counteract your weight-loss actions.  The acidity found in these drinks can also damage tooth enamel and cause cavities.  This happens when we eat too many sweets also.




How does the treatment work?

In the morning, before eating breakfast, drink 600 ml of water.  You can also make 2 batches of 300 ml.  Do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes after drinking all the water.

After 45 minutes you can eat or drink, and every 45 minutes before meals, drink another 300 ml of water.  Do not eat or drink anything after breakfast, lunch, or dinner, until two and a half hours after eating.  After this time you can drink more water if you like.

Benefits of drinking water

  • Water has no calories
  • Water therapy allows not only for weight loss, but also provides the proper amount of water to be consumed per day.  You need at least 2 liters of water a day, since your body is made up of 55 to 60% water.  This helps get rid of excess weight.
  • Water therapy helps keep water intake stable and consistent.
  • It prevents numerous illnesses.  Drinking water helps headaches, body aches, epilepsy, obesity, arthritis, bronchitis, asthma, diarrhea, constipation, and kidney disease, just to name a few.
  • Helps clean the body and makes the skin elastic and young.

Beyond being just a weight loss diet, water therapy should be taken up as a health habit in life, that has fantastic benefits.
