You know how people always recommend making sure you’re drinking enough water? Well, there’s a reason for it.
Studies show that drinking half a liter of water boosts your resting metabolism by 10-30% for about an hour. That’s just over two cups of water.
You get more of a boost if you drink cold water, because your body has to work to bring it up to body temperature. Pretty cool, huh? No pun intended. 🙂
Not only that, water helps fill you up before you eat.
One study had people who were overweight drink half a liter of water before they ate their meals, and they lost 44% more weight than people who didn’t drink the water.
You’ll also feel more energized, it’s good for your skin and digestion, and just generally helps you FEEL better!
As a general rule of thumb, a good starting point is half your body weight in ounces of water each day. So if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be about 75 ounces.
Some other tips to boost your metabolism:
- Eat enough protein.
- Make sure you get enough calories.
- Stay active during the day.
- Get at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep.
I hope these tips help energize and rev up your metabolism!
