“Is it true if you drink lots of water, it will help you to loose weight? Is it bad for your body if you consume too much of it?”

  1. Studies show that people who drank two glasses of water 20-30 minutes before a meal loose more weight.
  2. Being even 1 percent dehydrated can cause a significant drop in metabolism!
  3. It is very difficult for the body to differentiate hunger from thirst. If you don’t drink enough water throughout the day, you may mistake thirst for hunger and eat more than you really need.

So staying well hydrated is important, particularly if you are trying to lose weight.

To answer the second part of the question, yes, drinking massive amounts of water (gallons and gallons) can cause a dangerous condition known as hyponatremia. So stop drinking after a couple gallons! J
