We’ve heard it all the time. This is one of those Tips for Weight Loss that is a gimme. You need to get your daily intake of water in. If you don’t, you could get dehydrated, you could stall your weight loss and more.
So we know this right? We should be drinking more water. But let’s look at other ways that water could be a benefit to your weight loss.
Tips for Weight Loss
For me, after weight loss surgery, I still have to get in my water in take but it’s a bit harder. My stomach is half the size it was before so if I drink water with my meals, I’ll get full really fast. Instead, I need to stop drinking a half hour before I eat and wait a half hour after I eat.
I need to focus on filling my stomach with protein first. Then if I have room left over, veggies next.
Using this train of thought, for those that haven’t had weight loss surgery, drinking water close to when you are going to be eating is a great tip for weight loss! Try drinking a full glass of water shortly before you eat. Your stomach will already feel full and you’ll eat less.
I also notice that if I’m not getting all of my water intake in for the day, I get those hunger pains. Water does so much for us, it just needs to be a priority in our weight loss journey.
I have been bad about updating. Last time I updated I weighed in at 197. My weight loss has been pretty slow BUT I’m happy to report that I am down to 190 as of today. I’m excited to hit the 180s. No matter what I weigh though, I’m happy with how I feel and how I look. And can I just say that it feels incredible to be able to walk into a store, grab a size off the rack and have it fit. I am so not used to that!
