Is your Resolution to get fit in 2018?

It’s that time again! Time for New Year’s resolutions and setting goals for 2018. Are you ready? If part of your resolution includes losing weight and getting fit, then you are going to need Fontis Water! According to Women’s Health Magazine, “water may very well be the most underrated nutrient—especially when it comes to weight loss.” “Leah Kaufman, R.D., a dietitian with NYU Langone Medical Center’s Weight Management Program, even has her patients download an app, like Waterlogged or Water Drink Reminder, that will remind them to drink water continually throughout the day. “Drinking enough water is so easy to forget, but it’s critical to weight-loss success,” she says.”

  1. It powers your workouts – If you’re dehydrated, both your workouts and your results will suffer.
  2. It increases your metabolism – Plain and simple, water boosts your caloric burn. That’s because every time you eat or drink, your body has to work to process whatever’s coming in.
  3. It helps ward off hunger cues – Often times when we think we are hungry, we are actually just thirsty. Quick grab that bottle of water!
  4. It boosts energy – When your energy levels are up, you slay your workouts, cut cravings, and are generally way more likely to be active.
  5. It keeps you from drinking other things – More water, less carbonated beverages.

How Much Water Do I Drink?

Now the question is how much water should you drink? Based on studies cited on healthline.com, drinking 1-2 liters of water per day should be sufficient to help with weight loss. You can calculate this as 1-2 liters, 34 to 67 ounces, or four to eight glasses of water. However, remember this is just a general guideline. Some people may need less, while others may need a lot more. Also, it is not recommended to drink too much water either, as it may cause water toxicity. This has even caused death in extreme cases, such as during water drinking contests.
