Drinking plenty of water really is one of the easiest ways to achieve a leaner and healthier body, but with all sorts of – sometimes conflicting – advice out there, getting the real facts can be a tad frustrating.

That’s why we’ve come up with 3 great reasons why you should get more liquid life into you.

Energy

Water makes up around two-thirds of our body and it plays a key role in keeping our energy levels stimulated. Did you know that your brain is mostly made up of water, therefore drinking water helps you think more clearly, be more alert and more focused?  So the next time you feel like a procrastination party is about to kick in, go get yourself a glass!

Weight Loss

When it comes to shedding a few pounds, staying hydrated is key to giving your metabolism a good push. In that case, keeping our bodies well hydrated is vital to aid weight loss. Water flushes down the by-products of fat breakdown and drinking enough of the stuff can reduce hunger.

Top Tip from @primalsuzie – “Fire up your metabolism in the morning by starting your day with a glass of water or a cup of green tea.”

Mood

Feeling happy today? In an upbeat mood? That’s the power of water! If you’re feeling a bit blue, simply drink more. Even mild dehydration can cause mood swings. Plenty of the good stuff can keep you in a happy head space. If you’re feeling stressed add some slices of cucumber to help combat anxiety as it contains stress fighting vitamins such as Vitamin B, B1, B5 and B7.
