Most people like to believe they drink enough water, but actually don’t drink half as much as they should. Did you know that water consumption increases the rate at which we burn calories.
“Researchers estimate that over the course of a year, a person who increases his water consumption by 1.5 liters a day (33 oz), would burn an extra 17,400 calories, for a weight loss of approximately five pounds. They note that up to 40% of the increase in calorie burning is caused by the body’s attempt to heat the ingested water. The findings are reported in the December issue of The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.”
TheFittChick never leaves her house without her BlenderBottle! Fill it up with water and drink away! If you need some added flavor, add some crystal light, sugar-free Hawaiian Punch, or a little lemon. Just get drinking!
If you’re doing everything else right and still not seeing results, this might just be what’s missing.
