Drinking water is great for you for many different reasons. But the one reason that will be of most interest to you is that water can be your ally in your war against flab. Yes, drinking water can help you in losing weight. Surprised?

Water helps in transportation and dissolution of fat cells, thereby making sure that they are not stored in the body as puppy fat. You'll be glad to know that even water dense foods like cucumber, watermelon, lemons etc count when it comes to consuming water for weight loss. These foods help in restoring nutritional balance to the body without doing much harm or piling on too many calories. 

So how much water should one drink in order to lose weight? Experts suggest that for every kilogram of body weight, you should daily drink 0.33 litres of water. So someone weighing 60 kilos should drink at least 2 litres of water every day. There is differing opinion on the temperature at which your drinking water should be. But most experts agree that drinking 3 glasses of cold water on an empty stomach in the morning fires up your metabolism and keeps it going throughout the day. So maybe that's where you start your drinking-to-lose program. Good Luck!
