have heard some of the hype about “Fat Flush Water.” But
how exactly does water flush fat out of your system?
Clearly, water is not some kind of magic diet
supplement. Your body needs enough water everyday to
keep hydrated and cleanse itself of unwanted materials.
Fat deposits that form on the body can be tough to break
down and eliminate, but proper nutrition and exercise
can help greatly with this.
Fat is broken down when the body
uses its fat deposits to produce energy, the
triglycerides in the fat cells are removed. Then, these
are broken down into fatty acids and glycerols and are
then absorbed into your muscle tissue and internal
organs where they are then broken down even further
through various chemical processes. If the products
leftover from these chemical processes are not used by
the body as energy, they are then considered waste
products and need to be removed from the body. This is
where the role of water comes in.
Water is the vehicle used to
remove these waste products from the body. The leftover
materials from the fat breakdown are then filtered out
of your organs by the water that you drink. The water
carries the waste to your bladder where it is then
expelled from your body through your urine. Our bodies
truly are amazing!
It is important to drink enough
water each day to keep you hydrated and facilitate the
breakdown and elimination of fat cells. Many sources
claim that you should
consuming around 8 glasses of water per day, but this
number can largely vary depending on your size, how
often you are exercising and even how hot it is outside.
Try and keep drinking water consistently throughout the
day and consider water before soda, fruit juices or
other sugary drinks as these can actually dehydrate your
body even more. Often a lack of energy and even
headaches throughout the day are simply caused by mild
dehydration. It is a good idea to make a conscious
effort to drink more water. A little extra is definitely
better than not enough!
