Why Should You Drink More Water?

Written by Walija Ishtiaq

Have You noticed why I recommend you to drink more water in basically every article on weight loss, health, and fitness? I’d hate to sound like a broken record, but water is imperative for your health. Basically, 60 percent of your body is made up of water. Still, some people barely drink any water. And when these water-phobic people do drink, they might drink belly-busting beverages like soda or fruit juice. Here are some of the adverse effects of not drinking enough water that might motivate you to get up and grab a glass of water.

You gain water weight:

It sounds ridiculous but skimping on drinking water can actually cause water retention and temporary weight gain. When you are not drinking enough water, your body holds every single drop of it.

You Lose Focus:

Made of 80 per cent water, your brain’s abilities and functions seriously depend on water. Even slight dehydration impairs its abilities, making any eureka a challenge.

You Feel Hungrier:

It is very common to confuse thirst with hunger. If your stomach is growling, your best bet is to drink some water.

Your Skin Worsens:

Water is the secret behind plumpy, glowing, and healthy skin. Nixing water from your diet can seriously make your skin look pale and dull.

No Energy for Workouts:

Your body cannot efficiently convert carbs into energy without ample water. Not drinking enough water will not only affect your workout session. Your body holds back on the breakdown of fats.

Poor Kidney Functions:

In order for your kidneys to work properly, you need water to dilute the blood. Dehydration can lead to renal failure or worse, kidney stones. Still not thirsty? If you want to avoid all these things, just grab a glass of water. Your body will thank you later.
