Water helps with weight loss in a few ways. First, about 75% of people have their thirst and hunger mechanism confused. That means that sometimes when one thinks they are hungry, they are really thirsty. This can easily result in us eating more! If we make sure we are adequately hydrated, we can end up decreasing eating when we are actually hungry. Our metabolism needs to be adequate hydration to keep up to its optimal speed. If our body senses we're low on hydration, it slows down a bit. So keeping adequately hydrated is also helpful with weight loss.15 November 2022
