Water weight?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but is it going to make me look heavier if I drink a lot of water?  Or is water weight from salt?  

Re: Water weight?

  • Drinking a lot of water will not make you look heavier at all.  It is absolutely necessary to drink a lot of water if you plan on trying to lose weight...or even just to stay healthy in general.  It helps flush out your system!  Drink a ton.  The new guidelines say you should be drinking half of your body weight in oz every day.  So, if you weigh should be drinking at least 60 oz of water a day.

  • Water keeps you passes right through you, but has enormous benefits. It will not make you carry permanent weight - in fact, drinking water should help you lose weight. Unless you chug two gallons of water right before you squeeze into your dress (hello water belly), this is a non-issue. 

    Dehydrating yourself, on the other hand, can cause you to bloat, feel fatigued, cause headaches, and eventually cause serious problems if you let it go on too long. 

    Get yourself a good water bottle and make it a goal to drink a few bottle-fulls a day. Your body will thank you for it.
