Are you ready to burn more fat?

One of the most common questions I am asked is, “How do I burn fat faster?”  Well, that’s a great question.  I could tell you so many different things that work well for some, some that work well for others and one that works GREAT for EVERYONE!!

Some people respond well to reducing carbohydrates.  Others find success with increasing protein.  Resistance training is a key to everyone’s program but there is one sure-fire ingredient to killer results.

So, what is the magic pill?  What is it that works for everyone?

Water.

Drinking water increases fat burning. One of the reasons that very few people know about is that water relieves the pressure on the liver by keeping your kidneys doing the majority of the filtering.

When you don’t have enough water in your body, pressure is put on your liver to do the filtering job that the kidneys normally do.  So, instead of the liver doing the fat burning job, it gets to help the kidneys.  And like most things in life…when you try to do two jobs at once, something suffers.  In this case, the fat burning ability.

So… there you go, but wait, there’s more…

Drink water 15 minutes before you eat and you will drop weight.  Researchers testing hydration found that drinking water prior to meals decreased the amount of food people eat…it’s like magic…fill your stomach with water, (no calories, no fat, no crap)  and your stomach feels more full. TADA!! What a concept!!!

The final reason water is so incredible for fat burning is to keep acidity levels in balance, your body begins to increase its core temperature slightly.  This state called “thermogenic” is prime for fat burning purposes.

So you get a three great benefits:

1. Appetite control;

2. Increased thermogenic (fatburning);

3. Increased hydration (less stress on liver=more fatburning.)

This makes plain old water the number one fat burner you can drink on earth.

So, just to prove the point I am introducing the “14 Day Water Challenge”.

All you have to do is respond to this post in the comment section and let me know you’re in.  Jump on the scale and get your start point and then commit to drinking 2 litres of water per day for the next 14 days.  (Spread the water out through your day, but make sure you have at least one good size glass before each meal.)

Deal?? Come on..what do you have to lose?? (As if we don’t know)

  1. I am already drinking lots, but can I still join in? 🙂 Water has made a huge difference in my life. I used to be a pop-aholic, but now I always turn to water first. If you don’t like water alone, Crystal Light has a powder you can put in the water that is sweetened with Splenda! Or there’s always natures water flavouring….lemon or lime or even orange! Carrie has ingrained it in me to always drink at least 3-4 liters of water and at first I didn’t think I could do it. I bought one of those bottles that holds a liter and then I only have to drink 4 per day! Easy! I always drink one at boot camp so it’s even easier to get the water I need throughout the day.

  2. I would love to join the challange but I’m already drinking 3-4 liters a day. It isn’t so hard as you think!! And it makes life so much easier – skin looks/feels better, not so hungry, and I feel better too!!

    😀

  3. Count me in… Shouldn’t be that big of a step for me to go from 1 – 2 litres of BEER a day to 1 – 2 litres of WATER!! HaHa…. JUST KIDDING Carrie!! I look forward to the challenge!!

  4. I will drink water before eating cupcakes and see what happens! (kidding, I don’t really eat them, just taste (mostly) Already drink a good amount of water but not necessarily before I eat. Will give it a try.

  5. I’d like to try this. I already drink a lot of water, but I’m inconsistent. I have been told that it takes 3 weeks for a new discipline to become a habit. It sure couldn’t hurt to become an automatic water-drinker and not have to be so conscious about it. Thanks Carrie!

  6. I’m in! Have nothing else to drink since giving up the diet coke … UGH! I still dream of the fizzzzzy bubbly drink!

  7. Of course I’m in! I was a way for a couple of days and it was nice to see all the motivational emails. Keep it up BC’ers! 🙂
