Increase Your Metabolism: Drink More Water

Fully 70% of the Earth is water, as is 60% of your body. And water along with sleep is another thing we take for granted.

Drinking water is 1 of the easiest ways to speed up your digestion, burn calories, and improve your metabolism. The recommended minimum is 8 glasses a day, but drinking more definitely does not hurt.

Studies show that downing 6 cups of cold water a day can raise your resting metabolism, burn extra calories and lead to a possible weight loss of 5 lbs a year. Yes, 5 lbs a year from just drinking cold water, it does not get easier than that.

Your body not only burns more calories raising the temperature of the water, but water also fills you up, decreases your hunger, and makes you eat less.

Water is the secret to life, and to your metabolism.

So, do drink some water 1st thing in the morning, as it will help you wake up and start your metabolism. If you have a hard time remembering to drink water, try to incorporate foods with high water content, like celery or cucumber.

You can also put some fruits into your water to add some extra flavor or better yet drink value added waters.

Remember that tea and other drinks also help you get the water you need to stay hydrated, but coffee will dehydrate you.
