Is drinking water really that important? YES. Physical performance and fat metabolism are both affected by dehydration. The fat burning process is not possible without water in the system. Every chemical reaction in the human body requires one water molecule (H2O)….including the breakdown and metabolism of fat cells. The benefits of optimum hydration are ten fold. You will avoid mental fatigue. Your skin, hair and nails will be healthier. Dehydration due to lack of water can cause major health problems. Mental and physical fatigue, high blood pressure and slow metabolism are all caused by lack of water. Humans can go for weeks with out food but only a few days without water. Make an effort to consume extra water everyday. I recommend that you drink at least 8, 12oz. glasses per day if you want to maximize your fat burning capability.
