Water: The Forgotten Nutrient for Weight Loss

Water is an essential nutrient that makes up about 60 percent of your body. It is found in blood and in every cell of your body. Water serves to cushion and lubricate joints, help remove waste products, and control body temperature. All of your metabolic processes occur in a fluid environment, so it is extremely important! Chances are you don't drink enough water.

One benefit of drinking liberal amounts of water is that it fills you up. Since water has volume but no calories it can help to prevent overeating. One problem most people have with water is that it doesn't have taste. Try adding lemon, lime or even artificial sweetener to your glass of water to make it more appealing. Another option is to purchase bottled water that has already been flavored. Flavored water has become a big success and can be found almost anywhere. Keep your water nearby, drinking frequently during the day. Getting in 8-12 glasses of water a day will help you stay hydrated and assist in controlling your food intake
