Are you Hydrated for Weight Loss?

Did you know that drinking water can help with weight loss? It’s absolutely essential to our body, yet most people do not adequately hydrate daily. Drinking water can aid in weight loss in several ways:

  • Increases feelings of fullness: Drinking water before meals can help to increase feelings of fullness, which can lead to eating fewer calories overall. This can help with weight loss by reducing the number of calories consumed throughout the day.

 

  • Boosts metabolism: Drinking water can temporarily increase metabolism, which is the rate at which the body burns calories. This effect is thought to be due to the body having to work to warm up the water to body temperature.

 

  • Replaces high-calorie beverages: Drinking water instead of high-calorie beverages like sugary soda or juice can help to reduce overall calorie intake, which can lead to weight loss over time.

 

  • Reduces water retention: When the body is dehydrated, it can retain water in an effort to prevent further water loss. This can lead to bloating and water weight gain. Drinking enough water can help to reduce water retention and promote a leaner appearance.

 

It is important to note that while drinking water can aid in weight loss, it is not a magic solution on its own. Weight loss also requires a healthy diet and regular physical activity. Drinking water can be a helpful tool to support these efforts. What are you waiting for? Grab some water and get hydrated!

Feeling Run Down?

Are you feeling run down? Does just the routine of every day life cause you to feel tired ALL. THE. TIME??

Occasionally, stress at work or at home can take a toll on our energy levels. Sometimes, just sitting on the couch scrolling through Instagram or TikTok takes the last ounce of energy we can muster. When our motivation is low, our responsibilities begin to pile up and increase our stress levels. Day in, day out. Constant stress overload. Being in a state of chronic stress can overwhelm your adrenals, leaving you feeling physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted all the time.

When we have hormonal imbalances, we tend to have difficulty dealing with everyday stressors. Coupled with common symptoms of imbalance like fatigue, poor sleep, weight gain, brain fog, muscle aches, and joint pain (just to name a few), we simply get overwhelmed.

When these symptoms appear, there could be multiple culprits, making it difficult to know what our bodies need in order to feel our best. If you’re between 30-65 years old, it may be time to evaluate your hormone levels.
