I finally drank my 64 oz. yesterday. It wasn't that bad! I have these glasses that fill 16 oz, so its pretty easy, drink 4. Doesn't seem like thats enough - it always said "8 glasses" - to me this seems more like "8 cups (8 oz)" - anyway. Is this right? And I've heard of people loseing by drinking lots of water? Surely exercise & a calorie diet would help more, but water by itself???
Water helps but I don't think a person can lose a lot of weight if that's the only change they make, unless they're drinking so much water that all the trips to the bathroom are burning calories. I think drinking a lot of water only helps as a supplement to diet and exercise.
I don't think that you could lose weight JUST by adding 64 oz. of water to your (not specifically you) diet. Water can make you feel fuller so you don't eat as much. It also washes toxins from the body (aka: some fat). But like I said before--if you don't change your eating habits or exercise--water isn't a cure all. I have begun drinking at least 64 oz a day and it has really cut my "need" for food. I'm just too full to eat sometimes. But, I do make sure that I stick with my daily goal of calories, etc.
Hello I am new here. I personally have lost 120lbs almost 2 years ago by cutting out coffee and caffine, and adding 4-24 oz. bottles of water a day. I don't believe that water alone could help you lose weight. Only if there is physical activity included. Take care, suzie
If a person is losing weight just by drinking water, then it's probably cause the water is replacing other beverages, which basically means you're cutting calories. From that standpoint, it's not the water that's causing you to lose weight, but the fact that you're not having those other beverages.
Yeah, what makes pure water different from water with a bit of sugar free diet tea mix? If there is no difference, pretty sure I'm getting at least almost the right amount! But for weight loss, alone, pretty sure calorie counting & exercise would work best with, so how can one tell if its water alone? Oh the rumors.
It's my personal opinion that drinking all that water is unnecessary. Not unhealthy, just unnecessary. You'd lose just the same amount of weight no matter what liquid (calorie free) that you drank. Here is an interesting link to a doctor that studies such things. He thinks all other liquid counts too, such as coffee, tea, the water in the food you eat and even beer.... http://www.dartmouth.edu/dms/news/20...002_water.html
