Incredible as it may seem, water is quite possibly the single most important catalyst in losing weight and keeping it off. Although most of us take it for granted, water may be the only true “magic potion“ for permanent weight loss.
Water suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits.
The kidneys cannot function without enough water. When they don’t work to capacity, some of their load is dumped onto the liver. One of the liver’s primary functions is to metabolize stored fat. But if the liver has to do some of the kidney’s work, it cannot operate at full throttle. As a result, it metabolizes less fat, more fat remains stored in the body, and weight loss stops.
You should drink 0.033 of a litre of water per day for every kilogram of bodyweight. If you weigh 65kg, that is 65 * 0.033 = 2.145 litres of water. For every glass of coffee or tea you consume, you need to have an extra glass of water, as caffeine will dehydrate you. The amount of water you drink should also be increased if you exercise, or if the weather is hot and dry.

Drinking at least one and a half litres of water a day is essential for weight loss and good health. The actual amount of water you should be drinking is your weight in kilos times 0.033, for example if your weight is 65kg, the amount of water you should be drinking each day is 65*0.033=2.14 litres per day. This is your ideal water intake.
