Anyone who wants to lose weight, tends to drive the Sport and avoids oily food. But also the right amount of water plays a role. A sports scientist explains that which is the formula you calculate the correct amount of water.
Who wants to be slim, you should eat a healthy diet. It is also important to drink plenty of water, I learned from one of my first mentors, a Personal Trainer. He took part in Bodybuilding competitions, so he was a real expert when it comes to influence by using the nutrition of the body. Also in the case of his client his advice showed a sometimes amazing effects. And one of his basic rules for losing weight was to drink a lot! At that time, the resistance came to me intimately – would I feel then, not bloated and heavy? The opposite is the case: those Who drink to little, stores more fat. The Reasons:
- The body may interpret Thirst signals as Hunger, so we eat something instead of drinking
- In prolonged dehydration, the metabolism runs slower, in order to save water and energy. As a result, the liver stores more fat
- Dehydration is stressful for the body. Insulin and Cortisol are increasingly distributed, which in turn causes the storage of more fat
How much you should drink depends on body weight: Divide your weight in kilograms by 30, then the daily amount of liquid in liters. If you weigh 75 kg, you should drink about 2,5 l. However, this may increase the need for fluids due to sweating, when you sweat in the training sessions a lot. As a rule of thumb: Add per hour of intensive training, about half a Liter of water for daily drinking amount.
