Dr. Lori Shemek is BACK IN TIME FOR THE START OF FALL to discuss the connection between drinking water and your weight loss goals!
Is your weight not budging on the scale? You may just need to drink more water!
Let me tell you why below...
Why Should I Drink Water?
Drinking water is an optimal choice to keep your body healthy, energized and lean.
Our bodies are 75% water – which is why water is required daily for every single process in the human body.

Can Drinking Water Help Me Lose Weight?
Many people do not realize that water consumption can help regulate appetite, stop overeating AND promote weight loss.
So, I’m here to set the record straight!
The following tips will help layout the reasons to drink-up for weight loss success:
Drink Water Before You Eat
Drinking water before you eat can help reduce appetite and calorie intake.
Research shows that simply drinking 8 ounces of water before a meal promotes weight loss.
One 12-week study showed that participants who drank 17 ounces of water before each meal lost 4.4 pounds more than those who did not.
Research also indicates that drinking water may speed up your metabolism for every 17 ounces you consume.
Drink the Right Kind of Water
All water is not created equal!
A recent study estimates more than 100,000 cancer cases could stem from a toxic cocktail of chemical pollutants in tap water alone.
Therefore - it is crucial to drink water that will keep you healthy AND safe.
Drinking water is a key component to optimizing your health – but there is a special type of water that you can drink that is also a powerful antioxidant:
hydrogen-rich alkaline water made from a water ionizer
Hydrogen water, which is ionized alkaline water that contains molecular hydrogen, is powerful because the tiny hydrogen molecules can easily permeate the cell membrane into the cell.
Alkaline hydrogen water made from top-quality water ionizers can provide health benefits where other waters would fail, such as:
- Balancing your body pH
- Increasing your energy levels
- Helping to soothe the symptoms of heartburn
Adding in water to your daily routine is vital, but what’s even more crucial is the type of water you drink.
At the very least, you can install a water ionizer machine to help reduce your exposure to contaminants.
Drink Cold Water
Research has found that drinking six cups (48 ounces) of ice-cold water a day helps boost your metabolism and increases caloric burn by about 50 calories.
That’s enough to lose five pounds a year!
This metabolism boost occurs because your body must work harder to warm the water up to maintain its core temperature, therefore, burning more calories and helping you to lose weight.
Drink Enough Water
Without water, the body cannot properly metabolize stored fat or carbohydrates.
The process of metabolizing fat is called lipolysis. The first step of this process is hydrolysis, which occurs when water molecules interact with triglycerides (fats) to create glycerol and fatty acids.
Additionally, when we are just 2-3% dehydrated, cellular function slows down and so does our metabolism. If chronic, this can lead not just to fatigue, joint pain, lethargy and headaches...but to weight gain as well.
So, by drinking enough water – your increased water intake can lead to increased fat loss.
To ensure you get enough water daily: drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces daily.
- For example, if you weigh 120 lbs., drink 60 ounces at a minimum each day.
- Increase water consumption depending upon exercise and weather conditions.
