But it is also important that you realize it is possible to consume more water than is good for you, should you suffer from the unfortunate problems of a water retention .So it is best to check with your doctor before you do any heavy drinking of water as part of a weight loss diet.

But in contrast to any other drink, it is not usually necessary to think twice before drinking large amounts of water. On the contrary, drinking large amounts of fresh water should become a regular part of your daily diet because apart from anything else it will assists in increasing an overall healthier lifestyle.

Pure fresh water can detoxify your internal organs such: as your liver and kidneys and is simply the best liquid you can possible drink on a regular basis. If you are drinking water to lose some excess fat, then you should totally eliminate any sugar-based soft drinks such as fruit cordials, sodas and other carbonated liquids from your daily diet.

Many people claim that the taste of plain water is unpalatable. But it is likely that these people who find plain water unpleasant have only tried their local tap water and have never experienced the taste of good quality spring water

So! Rather than drinking artificial fruit juice or soda drinks at dinner, why not try a glass or two of spring water instead. Some health advisors recommended that you should also start the day off with a glass of warm spring water as it is claimed to help get your brain functioning more quickly after sleeping.

Many nutritionist claims that water is a great remedy for a multitude of symptoms but is particularly vital for anyone on a quick weight loss diet like the 500 a day calorie diet etc. because it can help to speed up your metabolism (the rate your body burns calories)
