In this therapy, you have to drink several glasses of water at room temperature first thing in the morning when you wake up. Make sure that you do not eat anything before drinking water. The practice also expects you to have an eating window of only 15 15-minute breaks in between meals or snacks. Many people have found that practicing this therapy has helped them improve their overall health.
Few studies have said that hydration can cause weight loss. But it must also be supported by good diet and exercise. Studies have shown that drinking more water has a filling effect and since most of the space in the stomach is taken by water it stops your cravings and overeating thereby stopping unwanted gaining of weight.
A few investigations have shown that those who practiced drinking a good amount of water at the start of the day ended up eating 13% less food. It has automatically reduced their calorie intake and led to weight loss.
Another study found that drinking water in more amounts increases the resting energy expenditure (REE) results which is the base number of calories the body continues to burn while resting. Also cutting down on sugary beverages with water can also reduce the intake of more calories than needed. Moreover, the 15-minute window and long breaks between meals and snack time also help the intended weight loss.
