Water & Weight Loss

Written by Michael A. Smith, MD

Many studies overrepparttar years have shownrepparttar 150485 benefits of drinking water. In reference to losing weight,repparttar 150486 greatest benefit isrepparttar 150487 positive affect water has on your metabolic rate.

Water promotes a thermogenic state, which in return increases your metabolic rate. The faster your metabolism,repparttar 150488 slower your propensity to gain weight.

But is it really water that I am talking about? No. What I am really referring to is hydration. The human body works hard at keeping a certain amount of water and salt in your tissues relative torepparttar 150489 amount of water and salt in your blood.

Proper hydration is a reflection ofrepparttar 150490 correct balance of water and salt that exists between your blood andrepparttar 150491 surrounding tissues. Your diet should help your body sustainrepparttar 150492 correct amount of water and salt in your blood and not disruptrepparttar 150493 existing balance between your blood and tissues.

Let me explain...

Water & Salt Balance

True hydration is sustaining an amount of water in your blood relative to your tissues that reflectsrepparttar 150494 overall water and salt balance your body works at creating. Looking atrepparttar 150495 graphic, fluids that cause water to move out of your blood or into your blood are not ideally hydrating.


Salt Moves Water

For a fluid that you drink to be hydrating it should have little effect on moving water. Water will always move torepparttar 150496 environment withrepparttar 150497 higher amount of salt. Looking again atrepparttar 150498 three possible "tonicity" states, which one isrepparttar 150499 most hydrating?

Hypotonic Fluid -- This dilutes your blood and nowrepparttar 150500 surrounding tissues have more salts. Water moves out of your blood and intorepparttar 150501 tissues whererepparttar 150502 greatest amount of salt resides. This re-establishesrepparttar 150503 water/salt balance.
