1. Keeps you away from unhealthy drinks.

If you are constantly drinking water throughout the day then your thirst will always be quenched, so you wont be tempted by sugary drinks like soda, flavored coffee drinks, and pretty much any energy drink.

A study was conducted on several hundred adults, and it showed that drinking just one glass of water reduced the number of sodas they would originally drink by one, or more.

2. Be more energetic.

Having more energy is a step in the right direction to achieving weight loss. When you are feeling more energetic you will be more active, preform better in your workouts, and reduce your general cravings throughout the day.

Since your body is practically 70% water, when it enters your body it gives your cells the jump start they need to get more oxygen flowing through your body. Additionally, it will help keep you focused, and keep your muscles stimulated.

3. Eliminate hunger pains.

We've all experienced the tight, almost cramp like, feeling our stomach that we normally associate with being hungry, but that may not be the correct response.

That type of pain is most likely linked to being thirsty, or dehydrated. So next time you get the so called hunger pain, have a couple glasses of water, and they should most likely be relieved.

In addition, drinking two cups of water before a meal will help you to consume fewer calories while eating.

4. Boost your metabolism.

Drinking more water is a great way to boost your metabolism by up to 30% for the day, and increase the calories you burn as well.

Since water contains no calories, it is quickly, and easily processed, letting your body process everything else it needs to more efficiently.

Additionally, a nutritional study reported that drinking 8 glasses of water per day can result in you burning 200 or more extra calories each day.
