Have you heard about the benefits of drinking a gallon of water a day. I’m sure all my students are tired of hearing me say how important it is to drink water. Every doctor and TV personality recommends you drink more water – maybe even drinking a gallon of water a day – so it must be good for you, right? Based on all the research out there, it’s true! Water’s list of benefits is long, so to keep this post short and sweet, here are my top three reasons you should be drinking a gallon of water a day!
This is the most important reason to start drinking a gallon of water a day: it’s been proven to boost your metabolism. It actually raises your body’s internal temperature, which leads to burning off excess fat too! Do you really need a better reason to start drinking a gallon of water a day today?
Maybe we are not all athletes, but that doesn’t mean we are not active. Don’t you feel you are always on the move: we rush to the office, run up and down flights of stairs, and play with our children. So if water enhances your performance in sports, imagine how much it can improve your daily activity! Drinking a gallon of water a day enhances your body and mind, so be sure to stay hydrated!
You’ve probably heard before that we were all made “in the image of our Creator.” Surprisingly, that may not be too far off from the truth: like Earth, our bodies are 70% water! Water helps transport nutrients throughout your body, regulates your body temperature, and keeps your brain from shrinking. That’s right: every time you are drinking a gallon of water a day, you’re keeping your brain healthy too!
There are hundreds of other good reasons to start drinking a gallon of water a day, but these are the three most important and easiest to remember. So the next time you feel thirsty for soda or alcohol, let these facts come “flooding” back to you and reach for a glass of water instead!
If you are not able to finish drinking a gallon of water a day, then make sure to consume a minimum of 100 ounces (about 3 liters) of water every day. It may take a few days to get used to drinking this much, but remember that water is the only all-natural detoxifier, so those extra trips to the bathroom are worth it!
Bottom line: by not consuming enough water, you’re derailing your fat-loss efforts and hurting your training. So drink more water and you’ll find it easier to reach your goals and become the best version of yourself!
