Understanding what you body is made up of and how much water that your body consists of puts a big perspective on your water intake. You body is made up of more then 80% of water. Water has many pros for what it does to your system. Some include releasing toxins from the body and hydrates your body for more energy and performance. The consumption of water that should be taken in is about a gallon a day, but drink a couple of glasses a meal will consume most of that gallon and put you in a good place for trying to loss that excess fat and stay healthy.

Water truly is a quick weight-loss solution. It's effects are drastic, but most people don't even notice. Drinking water not only keeps the body hydrated and at homeostasis, it's also a metabolism booster. By keeping the blood flowing, you can also prevent long-term cholesterol problems. Whenever I work out, I always make sure to have water on hand and not some soft drink. The vital part that makes water so convenients is its total lack of calories.

There are lots of vegetables that are so starch and carb-loaded that they might as well be junk foods. Especially when cooked in fatty oils. For example: the potato. The potato is classified as a vegetable, but it's a very meaty one at that. A single red potato can have up to 40g of carbohydrates!! Large potatoes may go higher. It's no wonder why french fries are so unhealthy for you - potatos deep friend in fatty oils = excess carbohydrates and fats with no health benefits whatsoever.

Don’t beat yourself up, slow progress is good | Fat to Fantastic

AmazingPeople's insight:

Three weeks on from making new year resolutions, was one of yours to lose the fat?

I always think January is a very hard time to make a change.  Dark nights and cold  weather doesn’t encourage us to go out and when we have really cold snaps like now we want to eat stodge.

 

But I don’t think we should beat ourselves up for slow progress, or give up and wait till Easter.

 

I also think we should embrace the slow approach to losing weight. It’s always a lovely feeling to get a big weight loss but mainly a big weight loss is our body adjusting to holding too much water and we should feel really pleased for a 1 pound weight loss. We’ve got 9 and a half weeks till Easter, so a pound a week can make a substantial difference by then – a 10 pound loss!
