SNEAKY TRICK #1
First and foremost, people don’t realize that what they drink is the first step in losing weight.
In fact, most people don’t know that when they feel hungry, they may actually be dehydrated and they are really thirsty, not hungry.
Water is your best friend.
70% of your body weight is nothing but water.
This is also why water plays an important role in weight control. So
TRICK #1:Drink ice water.
Yes, you know that you need to drink about 8 glasses of water per day for your body to burn fat and flush toxins out of your system.
But a study from Germany revealed that ice water is more rapidly absorbed by the body and increases your metabolic rate by as much as 30% for 2-3 hours.
Have a large glass of ice water as soon as you get out of bed in the morning and it will fight your body’s dehydrated state from the last 6-8 hours and jolt your metabolism out of its slumber to get a fat-dissolving start on your day!
