Daily intake of water has numerous health benefits. Drinking water is calorie-free and it can help with digestive problems, overweight, toxic overload, and problems with the hair and skin. Research has shown that people who drink several glasses of water before a meal will eat less.
Furthermore, drinking a gallon of water daily can be achieved if you divide the consumption evenly throughout the day. This will better your overall wellbeing and you will feel very energized and refreshed and you won’t feel any need for a big cup of coffee and your food cravings will significantly reduce.
You may not have known this, but the body is often unable to make a distinction between hunger and thirst. Therefore, when you’re thirsty, the brain confuses it for hunger and so you overeat instead of hydrating the body. This may lead to weight gain. But, if you drink enough water, you will successfully stop overeating.
Let’s take a look at how to reach the one gallon of water goal:
When you wake up, drink 2 glasses of water and while preparing breakfast or preparing for work, drink another one. During breakfast, drink one more to improve the digestion. Enhance the flavor with some lemon, lime, mint, or cucumber slices.
If you exercise on a regular basis, drink enough water to compensate for the lost water.
Always carry a bottle of water wherever you go and make sure to drink 3 glasses of water before lunch and then two more during the meal.
Between lunch and dinner, drink 3 glasses of water and then two more during dinner.
Instead of a late night snack, drink one glass of water, few hours before bed.
If you do this every day for a month, you will cleanse the whole body and your skin will literally glow. Moreover, your metabolism will significantly improve and you will maintain a healthy weight.
