Studies show that the water temporarily boosts metabolism, causing the body to burn an extra 24 calories. Drinking one 8-ounce glass of water burns about 12 calories. By drinking 2 liters of water per day, you could burn nearly 100 calories.
Cold or Room temperature? According to some studies, drinking ice cold water helps boost your metabolism because your body has to work harder to warm the water up. This means we burn more calories which helps you lose weight. In addition, ice cold water is just so much more refreshing than water at room temperature. So after exercising enjoy a nice glass of cold water! You’ll burn even more calories and feel great.
On the other hand, studies find that drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning can also help with weight loss. Warm water increases body temperature, which in turn increases the metabolic rate. An increase in metabolic rate allows the body to burn more calories throughout the day.
So, it you are looking to improve your fitness level and live a healthier lifestyle, make sure that you are drinking enough water throughout the day.
And how much? Well…It depends on your size and weight, and also on your activity level and where you live. In general, you should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.??Dehydrated people do fewer reps and get tired more quickly during exercise. Sounds obvious, but the reason why is interesting: dehydration lowers the hormone levels necessary for building muscles. So make sure you drink enough water to get your body in the best shape of your life!!!!
