Water works!

Water Works!

What happens when you’re not getting enough of the stuff…

Slimming slows down. Water is the fuel that drives the chemical reactions in your metabolism. So if you’re not drinking enough to replace the 2.5 litres we lose through natural functions each day, you wont burn as many calories.

You Feel Hungrier. When you’re dehydrated, your body sends out signals that it wants you to drink. But these signals are very easily confused with hunger urges, making you tuck in unnecessarily.

 Detox is sabotaged. Your digestion becomes sluggish without enough water which means you won’t be absorbing nutrients from your food efficiently or clearing away toxins and junk properly either. If you drink your fair share of alcohol and don’t take in enough water, then your body is over loaded with toxins from the alcohol and unable to flush them away.

 It’s impossible to concentrate. One of the first signs of dehydration is a headache and a foggy head.

Our brains rely on us to consume enough water to tick over properly and stay clear.
