The first tip on our list of weight-loss tips for women is super simple, but very few women actually follow it. Thirst is easily mistaken for hunger, especially in the morning. If you start your day trying to quench your thirst with food, you’re likely to keep that process up throughout the rest of the day.
Instead, start your day with two big glasses of water. That means before you have your coffee or tea, well before you eat breakfast, and as close to the beginning of your day as possible. The actual amount will vary from person to person, but try to consume at least a liter of water upon waking.
This will kickstart your day in the right way, helping you feel hydrated and avoiding any misinterpretation of thirst for hunger.
Healthy Tip: Pump up your water with flavor using what you have on hand. It takes the bland taste of water and elevates it without adding calories. Try a few slices of lemon or cucumber, chunks of watermelon or pineapple, or a couple of strawberries or blueberries. (You can also freeze pieces of fruit in your ice cubes.)
But don’t stop there!
Be sure to grab a refillable water bottle and take it with you everywhere you go. The closer you can get to a gallon in a day, the better your weight loss results will be. Water will help you feel full all day long and keep you from overeating in most situations.
It will also help to balance your sodium and potassium levels, which keeps your body from storing any unwanted water transdermally (beneath the skin), and will help you look your best every day of the week. While we’re at it, more water helps your body flush out a wide variety of toxins and free radicals that cause damage at a cellular level.
Healthy bodies are better equipped to burn fat and less prone to fat storage, plus more water typically translates to clearer, more radiant skin!
