Many health and fitness enthusiasts are are already aware of how important fit it it it is to drink ample quantities
of of water water However it it it may be a a a a a a a a a a a matter of of spe- cial interest to learn more about water’s role in in in body-fat loss and in in in the reduction of cellulite First water acts as as a a a a a a a a a a a natural appetite sup- pressant and drinking a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a glass or or two twenty minutes before a a a a a a a a a a meal may help you to avoid overeating More importantly not drinking enough water negatively affects our body’s abil- ity to to to metabolize fat Our kidneys depend on plenty of fresh water to to to enable them to to to effec- tively eliminate wastes such as as as as uric acid acid urea and lactic acid acid as as as as these forms of waste waste must
be dissolved in in water water If the the the kidneys are insuf- ficiently supplied with water water the the the liver must
step in in to perform some some of of the the the kidney’s kidney’s tasks How- ever being occupied with some some of of the the the kidney’s kidney’s work the the liver cannot perform its own tasks one of which includes metabolizing stored fats into usable energy as as efficiently as as it should As a a a a a a a a result fat remains stored on our body instead of being used up for energy Obviously a a a a a a a a decrease in in in in in in in water intake will eventually lead to an an increase increase in in in in in in in fat fat deposits deposits while an an increase increase in in in in in in in water intake will help reduce fat fat deposits deposits Secondly increasing water consumption

can can be significantly improved by merely drinking more pure water The reason which is is easy to com- prehend is is is that when we don’t drink enough water our body perceives this as a a a a a a a a a threat to to to its survival and begins to to to store it it particularly
in in in the the extra-cellular tissues underneath the the skin Unfortunately water retention is is one of the the major contributors to to cellulite problems as retaining water inhibits the the the the body from flushing the the the system of of of toxins leading to to the the the formation of of of cellulite Drinking plenty of of of pure water through- out the the day fixes this problem fast as as as our body will release the the the redundant stored water water drinking copious amounts of water water water makes the the body realize that retaining water water is no longer required due to the continuous plentiful sup- ply The habit of of drinking adequate amounts of of water also helps to flush out excess salt from our our system eliminating another major cause of of water retention and thus helps our our body to to return to to normal much quicker Getting rid of of excessive water will not only result in in significant improvement of cellulite but it it may also lead to significant weight loss If you are serious about becoming leaner and healthier drinking suffi- cient amounts of water routinely is an an an absolute must
