Hot Water Diet For Weight Loss
Water is the elixir of life and extremely important for our survival on this planet. Our bodies are made up of 70% water and it is essential to rehydrate our bodies with 8 glasses of water each day. Having said that, did you ever feel that the temperature of water matters too? People feel that if you drink cold water you may lose weight as you will burn calories to warm it up but sadly that is just a few calories and hardly matters. Read the complete post here.
Now let us talk of hot water. Can it work in weight loss? Well, that is what the hot water diet says. The Hot Water Diet plan is a water diet in which you will have to drink a cup of hot water each morning and before eating. Sounds pretty easy, right? It is actually pretty effective in increasing the core body temperature, improving circulation and helping you detoxify yourself faster.
This water diet is known to cleanse the body, reduce dry skin problems and treat constipation too. Drinking water for losing weight can be considered the simplest thing one can add to his/her diet and exercise routine. Apart from weight loss it has loads of health benefits to offer. So, what are we waiting for? Join me in unraveling more about this diet!
What is the hot water diet all about?
Like already said above, in the hot water diet plan, you have to drink between half and a full mug of hot water after waking up and before having a meal. You should keep the temperature of the water you drink around 50 degrees Celsius. You can get the water this hot by heating it up in a microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Apart from drinking hot water in the morning, it can also be had before and after a bath. The science behind this is not clear but logic behind drinking hot water before every meal is clear. Hot water will make you feel full faster and you will tend to lose weight as you will be eating lesser than you usually do. It also helps in digesting food faster :). See nothing too sciencey about it!
The best part about this diet is that you need not control your appetite or suppress your desire. This diet has no restrictions at all. You just have to drink a cup of hot water before every meal as a rule.
The practice of drinking a cup of hot water in the morning will help you in recovering from loss of fluid that happens throughout the night and will kick start the body’s circulation. It also helps in detoxifying the body and gets rid of toxins that can hamper your efforts towards good health.
You have to be careful that you don’t overdo it as excess of everything is bad. Stick to a maximum of 5 cups a day.
So, that was about the hot water diet! I feel that it isn’t a diet in itself but a change in eating habits. If you can’t have hot water plain, as it can taste really bland :P, try squeezing in a dash of lemon juice. Even drinking a little bit of warm (and not hot) water with lemon each morning can help in weight loss.
