Weight Loss Tips And Hacks For Women
You have read it and heard it everywhere. And, it is true. Water does help you lose weight.
Well, there are so tons of reasons. water is very beneficial and helps in controlling hunger pangs too.
1- Drinking water will help you flush out the toxins. You may need to visit the washroom more than, the average person, but so what? It is only because you are flushing out a lot of toxins from the system.
2- Water also plays a key role to keep your hunger pangs in check. Next time you are hungry, just ask yourself: can you eat an apple? Well, if the answer is no, then you are not hungry. Drink some water.
And, if the answer to the apple query was yes, then drink some water and then eat the apple;)
3- Water also boosts metabolism to a certain extent, Plus, you will thank yourself for the glowing skin.
Please bear in mind, that water is not a magic pill. You cannot eat fried chicken & club it with 2 liters of water and wonder why the scale has not moved.
Invest in a water bottle, that is easy to hold and does not spill. So whenever, you step out of the home you just throw it in your bag. It is advised to at least drink 2-3 liters of water every day. But, it varies from person to person. Check how much water you need to drink daily, right here.
Why does having a water bottle helps?
You know how many times you refill it. Keeping track becomes easier!
I would recommend buying a cute yet useful water bottle. The cute factor really helps me 😉

How to drink more water?
It is very much possible that like me, you are not a fan of plain water. But, trust me girls water grows on you. But, there is a wonderful way to make water a little flavoured, by infusing it with fruits or vegetables.
I personally like to flavor water with mint, coriander, cucumber & lemons.
But, using fruits for infusing water is also vastly popular.
If you miss the fizz, try to make it half and half.
How DO I Like Flavoured Water
2 liters Water
Handful of coriander & mint leaves
Few cucumber slices
Take a pitcher or a jug and throw in everything, except water. Add half carbonated water & half plain water and, keep it overnight in the fridge!
Please remember, this is to enhance the flavour and drinking infused water will not magically reduce your weight.
