One gallon of water a day seems like a lot, but after a few days of easing yourself into it you will adjust. Your goal should be to drink more water everyday even if you do not reach the full gallon. There are many benefits of drinking more water, and when reaching a full gallon a day you may see results faster and longer than if you were to drink half as much. Here are seven benefits you will begin noticing:
1. Prevent Overeating
The more water you drink, the fuller you become. This leaves less room in your tummy for food, while making you more full throughout the day. This helps you to stop overeating at meals and keeps you from snacking throughout the day.
2. Improves Skin
Drinking a gallon of water a day can really help improve your skin such as wrinkles, dull skin, and acne. You will notice your skin giving off a healthy glow as well as your blemishes smoothing out. Preventing wrinkles is a key benefit of drinking a gallon of water a day as you will feel beautiful today, tomorrow, and in the future.
3. Flushes Toxins
Your body needs water to function properly and helps you a lot when it comes to the bathroom department. It will make it easier for you to go to the bathroom, causes more urination, prevents constipation, and improves your colon functioning. Water makes toxins unable to build up in your body allowing you to live a healthier, more comfortable lifestyle.
4. Burns Calories
Yes I said burns calories – who wouldn’t want this?! When you drink ice water your body has to work to warm it up which is what burns calories. Not much effort here, so why not start burning up those calories now without even trying!
5. Boosts Metabolism
Obviously water is a necessity to live, but when you drink more than the bare minimum it boosts your metabolism. A faster metabolism makes your body burn through food faster, so you don’t gain as much weight.
6. Decrease Headaches
When you are dehydrated headaches become more common. This tends to inconvenience your day, making it harder to stay focused and be productive. Making sure you are always full of water will make you less likely to have to deal with constant headaches and pain.
7. Helps Rid Dark Circles
