Our best ally for weight loss

Hey, how are you?
I've talked about feeding but I've not said anything about one of the most important things if we want burn those fats.

Uhh... hmmm...
Sorry, that one was for another update about motivation.
What I want to talk about is water:

We must drink more water than normal if we're doing some sports. The minimum is 2 liters per day, but if we are burning more calories and sweating a lot more, our body will request for more water to avoid dehydration.
Remember we sweat to maintain a good body temperature, so when we stop doing exercises our body returns to its normal temperature but with a lot less water. That's the reason why we must drink water even we are training.

Don't forget drinking a little every time, and don't get your stomach full of it because you won't be able to continue your activities.

It's also known drinking water when you're hungry. If you must wait about a half or an hour for lunch or dinner instead of eating anything, wait for it, and drink some water, it will calm your hunger.

And you, how many water do you drink per day?

Probably around 2 liters a day just pure water, then more from stuff I eat of course.
