In this You Tube video, “Super Simple Weight Loss Tip, Part 2” I share a weight loss tip that’s so simple you won’t even believe it! I talk about the importance of keeping our bodies hydrated so we don’t mistake thirst for hunger. Many of clients followed this simple tip and were amazed at how quickly they lost weight.
Often our bodies aren’t hydrated so we think we are hungry when we are actually thirsty. The best way to stay hydrated is to drink plenty of water. Being a Mom, I’m often on the go so I bring a stainless steel water container with me. This type of container keeps my water at a good tempature, and it’s always around me so I never forget to drink it. The more you drink water, the more you’ll notice that your body craves it. If you wait until you’re really thirsty, then you’ve waited too long, and your body is already dehydrated. The recommended amount of water is 6-8 glasses of water per day, or more if you are active. I refill my 16 ounce thermos twice a day. By staying hydrated you’ll notice that you’ll no longer mistake thirst for hunger and you’ll eat less which will result in weight loss. ~Sara Holliday MFT, CPT, HHP
