Drinking Water Burns More Belly Fat (5 Studies)

The most direct way that water helps increase calorie burn and weight loss lies in the way your body absorbs water. The body must first warm (or cool) fluids that enter the body to 98.6°F (body temperature) before they can be utilized. This process requires energy (calories) to either create heat (if drinking something below body temperature) or remove heat (when drinking something above body temperature). Drinking enough water may be one key to maintaining a healthy weight, according to a new study, which finds that there may be a link between staying hydrated and staying slim. Water is great for you.

Proper hydration helps your brain stay alert, your cells function at top rate, and your exercise performance on key. There’s another benefit to water, too, and it pertains. If you are trying to lose weight, then hydration can even help you with that, and that’s a promise!

Apart from drinking water, there are topwater foods to enjoy too. Lots of people think that by keeping hydrated, they just need to drink plenty of water. Water can be really helpful for weight loss.

It is 100% calorie-free, helps you burn more calories and may even suppress your appetite if consumed before meals. Hydration and Bodybuilding: Drinking Water to Build Muscle and Lose Fat Hydration and bodybuilding go together like a needle and thread. You need to drink lots of water if you want to build muscle and/or lose fat at the fastest possible rate.

This is one of the simplest and most effective fitness concepts to implement. Top 9 Tips toward Proper Hydration for Weight Loss If you have been watching your food intake closely, then you are halfway through achieving your weight loss targets. Meanwhile, the other half of the battle in reaching a healthy weight involves paying attention to your liquid intake.

STAYING HYDRATED AIDS WEIGHT LOSS A study showed the more water you drink, the fewer calories you consume — up to a 1/2 pound of weight loss per week. Also, drinking water has been shown to boost your metabolism, a study concluded drinking 16 ounces of water led to. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs it to work properly and maintain overall good health.

But for weight loss, proper hydration may actually be important in and of itself. Dehydration Defined. WebMD describes dehydration as the following: Dehydration happens when your body doesn’t have as much water as it needs.

Without enough, your body can’t function properly.

List of related literature:

Water cleanses your internal system, promotes weight loss, clears skin, fights fatigue, gives energy, increases metabolism, prevents dehydration (and the dizziness and brain fog that go with it), helps reduce your total caloric intake by promoting a feeling of fullness, and even carries fat out of the body.

Water makes up 60 to 75 percent of total body weight.7 Water improves fluid balance, acts in the blood as a transport mechanism, eliminates metabolic waste products, dissipates heat, helps to digest food, and lubricates joints.

For another, water helps keep your metabolism (and all bodily processes, including fat metabolism) operating properly, ensuring that you burn calories at an efficient rate, which is what is going to help you lose body fat.

Water is lost so quickly during exercise that it becomes difficult, if not impossible, to replace the amount of water being lost and virtually impossible to increase body water while exercising.

Rather, we develop a water deficit termed voluntary dehydration by drinking less than the amount of weight (assumed to be due entirely to water loss) that we lose as sweat during exercise.

A switch from hydration with water only to a carbohydrate­electrolyte beverage after the initial hour of vigorous exercise is appropriate to replenish the calories and electrolytes lost while rehydrating and to maintain exercise intensity.

In addition, drinking 16 ounces of cool tap water for each pound (16 ounces) of body weight lost during exercise will prevent dehydration.

Becoming fully hydrated typically requires drinking one and a half times the amount of weight you lost—the extra amount is required because some of what you drink will quickly wind up as urine, necessary to rid your body of waste products.

  • also help to reduce apetite. i only eat once a day because im no longer hunger for the rest of the day. Water help me to solve my problem with bloated belly.

  • Can you speak in measurements of bottles of water please lol, also women get bloated before thier period,drinking lots of water or not.

  • I brew hot water over juniper berries in my coffee maker, and put lime and lemon slices in the pitcher, let it sit for about an hour, then drink it. How’s that?

  • Just wanted to clarify that thermal effect of ‘heating water’ inside your guts is not really true. By logic it makes sense, but there are studies which proves that when in comes to energy expediture, heating it from 2 or 20 to 36,6 is almost same effort for our bodies. So, drinking water is beneficial when it comes to fat loss because of the energy expediture needed to transport it around our body, but it really doesn’t matter what temperature it is. TLDR: don’t freeze youself with cold drinks, enjoy it at whatever temperature you like.

  • Maybe the case in the US but not where I live. Studies have showed our Tap water is cleaner than the 7 leading brands of bottled water. I’ll just keep drinking the tap water from our glacier fed river lol

  • I drink 3 liters per day in summer sometimes 4 liters without even feeling thirsty and I only piss like 3 times a day max and my piss is clear its not yellow or dark yello ect

  • Thanks for the great info. Watch/listening to vids everyday at work. Getting my co workers to subscribe. And surely plenty of entertaining and valuable information we learn from. Keep em coming��️‍♀️�� #fuck average

  • O S M O S I S & D I F F U S I O N

    great video really makes sense. Appreciate how you managed to simplify the rather complex concept of the physiology of the entire thing!:)

  • One thing I hate about drinking more water, is that I wake up needing to piss REAL bad. Like if I have been holding it in all night basically.

  • From what I have heard when in Ketosis the brain is running on stored fat and that it can behave or respond differently than when fueled by carbs. Can we expect different brain responses again when in Ketosis burning white, brown or visceral fat?

  • Please make a video on how bad sugar drinks are. People always underestimate the calories in drinks and speak like oh I eat so healthy what should I do but they only drink coke and multivitamin stuff with 2 much sugar. Would be nice, would send that my friends.

  • When I did Wildland Firefighting, I was told by the Capt. to drink 1 ounce per pound. A gallon has 128 ounces, and cold water doesn’t hydrate you. And dont chug water cause it doesn’t hydrate you either. Just makes more bathroom trips.

  • Thomas, you say hypernatremia is a low concentration of sodium in the blood caused by drinking too much plain water. Maybe it’s just a typo. That would be hyponatremia.

  • So quick question.
    Where did you get the figure that 1 calorie raises the temp of an entire liter? Everywhere I look, it says 1 calorie raises a single gram of water by q degree Celsius..

  • Wow �� this was so helpful i was drinking a gallon of water and peeing like 13 a times a day I had to get off the creatine because of it ��

  • This video was very helpful i drink a gallon room temp every day i love it. 1 glass in morning 1 glass at night prevents dehydration in sleep and strokes. Water also exspands the viens so more blood flow nutritions and minerals.

  • I drink almost a gallon of water a day, which doesn’t include herbal teas and sparkling water I drink to a day. I am not as hungry anymore and calories are vanishing without a trace. I drink 6 cups of water just by the afternoon. �� I also walk 2 to 6 miles a day. I am doing pretty good. �� When I see Greg on screen I pick up my 50 lb weights and start lifting.

  • completely contradicts your video about “dry fasting”, i’m starting to get concerned about the advice from all the other videos now maybe i’m just a bit emotional because I’m on a water fast lol

  • Thats wrong. A calorie is the energy needed to raise the tempeature of 1 gr of water to 1 C more. And you dont burn as much calories as you think.

  • Hey Thomas, I’m stuck on some contradicting information. I believe you have a video where you claim water fasting increases fat loss? Any clarification?

  • I discovered your channel a couple days ago and very big respect for all the work you’re putting in! All your videos are well schematized, mounted and are very agreeable to watch! Love the fact that you use some scientific research doc’s to prove that what you’re telling isn’t some bullshit. One of the best nutritional/bodybuilding/and stuff related channel on youtube!

  • Can someone please help. Ive beenifting for 8 months and gotten some gains and now i want to try doinfg a push pull legs split. I have a few questions though. How long can i do this split for cause im tryna go long term but most durations are 12 weeks is that the limit? How do i decide the exercises, sets, and reps? How many days a week do i train? Btw i am training for mass. Thank you

  • Oh you’re some kind of doctor allright. Following your tips I have made ”massive gains”, like a years worth of training in just 5 weeks. And since you fixed what was wrong with me (bad form and lifts) you are as good as or better than a doctor:)

    Thanks from Scandinavia!

  • I usually drink 2 of the tall smart waters a day, that seems to keep me pretty hydrated. Be careful with alcohol, 1 beer is enough to dehydrate you by 50%

  • I don’t know why but I find it really annoying when people say they are reading an audiobook. It’s not reading when you’re listening to it! Why do all youtubers do this? You won’t smart smarter when you say you are reading a book on the go in the car while you’re driving or putting make up on. It’s not just criticism to Jeff, it’s a trend that literally every youtuber with an audiable deal does. AGH

  • I drink a gallon and get enough carbs in, you won’t believe how full your muscles look. The muscle is like 70 percent water and a lot of carbs are stored there.

  • why you dont need 8 glasses of water a day? Because you can drink your water in cups. You’re welcome now you don’t have to watch the video

  • Surely it’s more like drinking water cools down your body, which triggers the process of homeostasis to bring your body T back to normal. Which uses energy.

    Not that your body deliberately warms up the water…

  • anything more than 2 liters makes me uncomfortable, and i sweat a lot during cardio, the whole 4 liters a day golden ticket thing doesnt apply to all

  • THANK YOU for saying that it’s unknown how much water we actually need.
    I’m so sick of morons telling me they need X amount of water. I say, we actually don’t know how much water we need. And then they’ll say, “well it depends per person but on average you need at least 2 1/2 liters every 24 hours.”
    And I’m like ��‍♂️ NOOOO WE NO ONE ACRUALLY KNOWS HOW MUCH WATER WE NEED. READ THE STUDIES!! Scientists have been speculating for centuries!!!
    You’re the first person EVER that’s spoken what I’ve read. The truth is, it’s unknown!

  • Greg drinking more water gets your stomach bigger and you need more food to fill it up.in every food contest people usually drink a gallon of water just to open up for more space.search it up.imagine a balloon when small not much space but if you put water it gets bigger having much more space.you are the best wish you health and success.

  • I drink insane amount of water for almost 6 months now and i have lost 11kgs of weight from 75 to 64 kgs, after loosing so much weight i was scared is it due to water or i have got some disease i checked for most of them and my reports where normal so yes if you drink too much water you will loose weight and there will be a lot more peeing

  • I always thought cold water was bad. Everyone said room temperature is better. Couch greg says it’s better. So I’m going to listen to him.

  • I actually love this well articulated and logical Coach Greg, the over exaggerated persona he has on his newer videos is kind of offputting

  • I’m on medication that prevents me from absorbing sodium so I have learnt to average 2-3L of water a day, since drinking this amount of water I find I am less bloated but that could also be due to the fact I don’t absorb as much sodium from my foods anymore. I do exercise 4-5 days a week of resistance training, I do find since my intake of water has increased, my recovery from workouts are slightly better but that could be a placebo effect, or perhaps my hydration has improved some slight recovery time. Great video as always ����

  • Hi thomas, im doin the dry fast now. Been doin it every fri night to sat night. 24hrs. But now as I speak, I feel so thirsty that im almost choking. I dont want to break my dry fast. If i drink now im afraid my 24hr dry fast would auto switch to just Omad.

  • I love keto and the way it makes me feel but how can I prevent muscle loss? Should I do bcaas, I’m only doing weights barely any cardio and I don’t feel as built as I did before. Any tips?

  • your wrong you need a gallon of water a day no coffeee or beer or sugar drinks substitute ice water only
    the body is thermal temperature is key to weight loss caffiene is a diaretic

  • Adam Ruins Everything did a good show on this as well.

    You gotta laugh at the people lugging those giant water bottles around all day, thinking they’re being super healthy.

  • Calories in the context of food are actually kilocalories, so drinking cold water isn’t going burn a significant amount of calories

  • What about water manipulation? good, bad..? A lot of BB and UFC/ Boxing athletes use it to drop weight! Personally I tried a 48 hour dry fasting was actually going for a 72 hour but I couldn’t last! First 24 hours actually felt easy and I had good energy but the second day I start feeling a bit jittery!

  • This video could of been better. The thing with water is if you just drink water and don’t pay attention to electrolytes you end up with an electrolyte imbalance.

    In the alcohol study he showed he made a ridiculoys conclusion. Yes, you do have to drink more water after drinking alcohol. You also have to replenish your electrolytes. If you don’t replinish, you will get a hangover. If you do, you won’t. A hangover is caused by the sever electrolyte imbalance alcohole causes.

    It’s a diuretic so it instructs your kidney to fill up your bladder immmediately. At that point it don’t give a shit about the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and could care less about electrolyte balancing. So if you drink and start off with a poor balance of electrolytes than after you drink your balance will be abysmal.

    For water it depends on what you do in a day, but it’s typically better to drink a lil more than needed instead of not enough. If you drink a but much, you’ll pee it out.

    Same thing fir sodium and potassium. Sodium should be 5 grams minimum but up it if exercising alot.

    Potassium should be quite about more because it not only gets used as a cellular pump mechanism, it also gets used to create stomach acid when we eat. I dunno what exact ratio we need, nobody does, but potassium intake should be way higher than sodium intake is what the literature points to.

  • What about sweating? How do you guys reduce sweat without reduced water intake?
    I exclusively drink water.
    Can NOT stand any form of alcohol or fermented fruits.
    I hate coffee and I hate caffeine because of the jitters. I have to take a scoop of kratom to calm the effects of pre-work out supplements. This combo really improves my performance so we’ll I must be careful not to over exercise. The first time I did this mix I hurt myself and needed a week to recover. I usually only need 48 hrs after a 6 day training period.
    I really need to slow down my sweating some how. I reduced my salt intake and only use electrolytes powder as needed it seems to help my creatine absorption

  • Thought of sharing a report about salt as I seen in your video that you encourage salt too https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/how-salt-impacts-diabetes

  • So Doctor Greg was calm in videos that were a year old. As of today this video says its 10months old. The Fitbit video where he was getting emails for “being wrong” was 8 months ago as of today. I think that was the start of his yelling and moron calling. Today we would all be morons for not drinking water lol

  • SOmething he never touched on: You should drink a 500ml bottle of water EVERY morning when you wake up…u just spent 8 hours with no water intake, you are dehydrated

  • when i used to work hard out doors in summer i would just sweat all day and drink water constantly(2 gallons in 8 hours approx)…when i would run out of water i had to stop and get more or i would feel like i was going to die…

  • Hey Jeff,
    Concerning alcohol and hydration. wouldn’t the suppression of vasopressin lead to a diuretic effect and not a antdiuretic one?

  • You’re saying you don’t need to drink that much water but you also say you should be peeing every 2-3 hours? 8-12 pee sessions/day? Pretty sure that’s a lot of water intake. Right? ����‍♂️

  • Hey I am here to really get tips and advice to improve on my life as far as nutrition and fitness to become a better person and hope you guys can help along this journey thanks

  • I’m a lifeguard, so when I do a 8/9 hour shift I’ve been having 10 liters plus per day, up to 13/14 if it’s really really hot. (Weight can fluctuate by about 3/4 kg per day though)

  • Thomas help! You said “ask”! So here goes. Dehydrated severely in the middle of the night. Urinating many times in the night, this affects my sleep! Plus, I am having deeper hot flashes and severe adrenal fatigue all day. I keep increasing acv, Himalayan salt, magnesium, cream of tartar sprinkle in each glass, magnesium 750 g per day. Sometimes my lips swell from salt in the morning… On keto diet for 3 weeks and very cranky! Oh yes Cod liver oil 4 capsules per day is my dose….

  • Thomas, just a question. I’m on my fourth day of intermittent fasting, since yesterday morning I have had an unquenchable thirst that made both my mouth and  throat very dry. No matter how much water I drink I just can’t seem to get rid of it. The worst part is my urine output increased drastically and it’s very diluted, which means my body is not even holding onto the water I drank to diminish the possible dehydration. I’ve read multiple threads online and found that lots of others had the similar issue,. However it only seem to affect them during fasting, whereas for me the problem persists into the feeding window as well. Is it normal or should I get myself checked for diabetes? If it is normal for intermittent fasting, could you please explain the science behind it? Thanks!

  • Ima fan bro,
    Peer reviews suggested the following,
    Milk is good, cigarettes aren’t bad, and protein is good regardless of source.

    I love the current science explained channel and I hope it profits you and you live an abundant life.

    I’d like to add, even though it’s individualized like you said; I’ll share some more hydration symptoms that may not register with thirst.
    Dry lips and dry skin and a tongue that doesn’t have complete natural color. However, brushing and good hygiene play a factor.

    Lastly, science based nutrition with all the peer reviews maybe optimal in there accuracy in studies showed demonstrating the validity with multiple studies.

    I have a lot of family that are in penal systems across the U.S. and arguably they have better physiques than people in the free world with access to whatever supplements including roids.

    It’s fascinating to me

    Anyway
    Cheers

  • Thomas your amazing at making me remember nutritional information, whenever someone gives me an answer without and explanation it never holds true but with your content I can retain what I watch! Bravo!

  • The fact is, when I first started doing overtraining with dips and curls, I was getting beat up pretty fast.

    Then I started drink 5 litres of water a day…. Holy fuck, my hunger shot up, me recovery shot up, my energy levels went through the fucking roof…. All I wanted to do was dips and curls and now….

    I can do 200+ PERFECT dips now, non stop and I can curl 50 kilo for 2-3 strict reps each arm. I have 20 inch BIGASS SCARY CRIMINAL arms and huge pecs, delts and tris…

    I am 100kilo with abs, eating 3-4 squares a day, whole foods, some fish and potatoes, loads of rice and, lentils, 4000+kcals.

    Water is really what keeps our bodies going perfect and strong.

  • Actually one calorie is the amount of energy required to increase the water’s temperature from 14.5 °C to 15.5°C, so it may differ from what coach Greg says. Though it is actually the first time I heard someone promoting fitness telling this, great job!

  • Hey Jeff! Love your videos, as an idea for a new Mythbust monday could you look into the benefits of Spirulina or even as a main source of protein intake?:) Would really appreciate it, let me know!

  • Hey jeff..i wish you could
    Make a review on this one..does caffein tolerance decrease its effect on the body, or just a mental tolerance

  • One thing that will affect how much water you need is diet. If you’re eating carbs, the amount of water required to digest, dilute, and transport can be HUGE! If you eat 100g of pasta, which is about 70 grams of carbs, your body is going to NEED to get, and hold much more than a liter of water just to dilute it in your body and blood… so if you’re a low carb dieter, and you decide to “cheat” and hit a simple dish of pasta, within that day, your weight is going to spike up to five pounds!

  • @Jeff Nippard, can you also make a video on why some people have to eat more often or like in Stephanie’s case, why some can eat a substantial amount of food up to the point where they gain even few pounds in a day (mostly during cheatdays) and still can’t say they feel full:) thanks, u;re awesome, I am watching you and Stephanie from Romania. xoxo, luv ya both

  • New to the channel and I have been watching your science explained videos and have noticed you use a lot of scientific journals in your videos. I was wondering where you get all these articles and journals from? Do you do a google search? Are their certain journals you like the best? Just curious where you get these articles/journals and how you pick which articles are good or not.

  • would a couple tbs of ACV, squeezed lemon juice and 1/2 1 tsp Himalayan Salt added to a gallon of water be a good electrolyte drink. I would like to make a gallon at a time and it be quality ingredients not to mention saving money not being store bought. Thank you.

  • Hi can you talk to the proper water to drink during the Keto diet or in general. There’s allot of conflicting info regarding Tap, purified, distilled, RO or RODI. Thank you for your continued commitment to teaching.

  • So cold showers and ice baths/cold baths I dont want to die. Are actually good for weight loss. I need coach greg to answer because he is right 99.314159% of the time.

  • When I was in high school I played football and rugby and I drank 1 1 1/2 gallons but on weekends I would drink 1/2 gallon or a little more

  • Wow! Great video, bro. Goes against a lot of things I’ve heard. Subbed.

    Will it be ok to take an Epson salt bath while drinking salt water to expedited the flushing of the body?

  • Dehydration doesnt mean ur going to be 1.59 times likely to be fat. This test is total crap.

    we’re all these people mesomorph endomorphic or ectomorphic

  • I got a question. This conflicts with dry fasting because you claim we lose weight in the fast but if you dehydrate during a fast it is good but outside it is bad? I genuinely want to know so i can work on mine. Thank you!

  • Hello, i have a sort of irrelevant question for this, but would it be okay for me to use garcinia cambogia together with tribulus terrestris since garcinia is proven to decrease appetite (in a good way) whereas tribulus functions by increasing the apetite. I’ve seen most of your videos covering garcinia vs green tea for fat loss along with ketone ones, so i assume that u have more awareness when it comes to these things. However im hoping to enter ketosis with garcinia and try to increase my testosterone levels which are both associated with skinny fat and try to build lean muscle mass while shedding fat. I plan to do it separately, first detox+garcinia for a month and see what happens, then use terrestris and do heavy lifting while previously and fortunately having shed my belly fat. This is the only contrary effect of the two above mentioned products, so id like to hear your opinion. So, i am in doubt whether this is doable all at once or i should prioritize shedding fat and then build muscle. Thank you, keep up the good work

  • It is my first successful diet program. My partner and i only wish that I had come across this diet program a long time ago. Ensure that you google “sowo hope site”! Of all the diet plans in the world, this is the best, I lost 8 pounds.

  • I’ve got a 2.5 ltr bottle. I drink one of these throughout the day. At least that way I can keep track of how much I’ve had that day.

  • Once during school I had double PE someone challenged me to drink 5 litre in 10 for £10 and won this was right after first PE lesson but then an hour later I had PE again couldn’t run at all.

  • I am 13 and 4’9” And I decided it was a good idea to drink a gallon of water each day for a week and so I did and I stuck to it. Peed probably 40+ times a day but It did great for my skin! I had a doctors appointment check up a few days after I did the challenge and she said my skin looked great

  • I feel thirsty to drink lots of water, but then I pee so much. For me to go to the bathroom only 5-7 times per day I have to reduce very much my water intake and I dont’t feel nice but at the same time I don’t like to live in the bathroom ������
    Any tips?

  • I actually subbed because I like the way you explain things in detail, but I have noticed that you are not doing intensive research about things that you just mention randomly while explaining the main topic. Like that Coffee or Tea “dehydrates” you, which is simply not true according to research. If you would be more careful with ur statements then I would love to save the time needed for researching myself, by just watching your videos, but this way im afraid I can’t believe everything you say..

  • Bruh there is science that supports how much water to drink and science about water filling fat cells and helping them shrink you’re a fucking idiot this whole video is trash

  • Do you think the obese people are dehydrated because they are so obese? Maybe their mass doesn’t let them become hydrated. Just a thought!

  • You get a like for the scuba mask and grocery store workout routine. And a little for the awesome info. But mostly the scuba mask. ����

  • While on the “fetching tuti space” diet program (Google it), a couple of my colleagues lost more than 15 lbs! Right after hearing about their results, I decided to research this plan on google for myself, and I shed bodyweight myself as soon as I started out following the “fetching tuti space”.

  • My friend finally confided in me how she lost most of her pounds and it had been by following the “fetching tuti space” (Google it). I actually Googled it for myself as soon as I got home. She did really well, she dropped 11 lbs.

  • Thomas, The videos are really nice and informative. Would you do a video on how/when to take the different drink mixes you recommend. Specifically the Apple Cider Vinegar + Lemon + Cayenne + Pink Salt. I drink this every morning and I also drink the other drink you recommend Ketogenic Smoothie Almond Butter+ Avacado + Greek Yogurt + Coconut Milk + Unsweetened Almond Milk + Baby Spinach + Truvia + Alpha Meal (taste Great too) Should I take both of these every morning and both at the same time or space them out?

  • That is AWESOME advice. thank you! Going to add salt to my water and see if that helps me. Legs are swollen. Take Prednisone which makes me retain water so know that doesnt help. All in all thanks again.

  • Hello Thomas. I just saw a video of yours where you talk about how “dry fasting” works three times better than wet fasting. You spoke about how dehydration was a good thing and now, in this video, it is not. I am so confused.

  • So happy that he is dispelling all the ridiculous myths about nutrition and training. He is right on the science every time and he should be this is his life. And his academic background allows him to evaluate data and studies. Which is something a lot of these supposed Fitness gurus are clueless on. Thank you coach Greg

  • “And if you’re carrying around a gallon jug of water or something like that, add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of water to that sucker.” Brilliant plan!

  • My partner and i only tried this weight loss program after my colleague bragged about it. She was able to burn 17 lbs. Take a look at “sowo hope site” on google.

  • Drinking more water actually doesn’t lead to hydration, it leads to dehydration. What I’m about to tell you I’ve told about 25 people so far in the past 3 weeks personally. They’ve implemented slight changes, and notices massive improvements in weight loss, energy, and cognitive function.

    Ever notice any part of your body that touches water suddenly becomes dry shortly after, and in some cases shrivels up like the hands or finger tips? People can literally see with their own eyes what water does, so why do people think it hydrates them when they drink it? It’s a solvent, a universal solvent.

    People seem to forget, in order to hydrate oneself, their cells need to uptake the water, but water in and itself doesn’t trigger insulin. Water cannot be absorbed on it’s own, it needs to be packaged up with other nutrients (much like it is in milk, and squeezed juices from fruits and vegetables).

    So where does the water go when we drink it? In many cases we just pee it out, but as we know our glycogen absorbs some level of water, and also gets in our skin to some degree. Once we follow a low carb-ish diet or even a diet that is strictly whole foods absent of grains, the body starts dumping water hand over first. People then start to feel better.. so if the body requires water in the amount we are told, why is the body so quick to dump it?

    Why did this happen? Back in 1961 Coca Cola decided they wanted to start selling water; they hired doctors, paid them off, then suddenly we are advised to drink 8 glasses a day. Prior to that, people barely drank water. They mainly hydrated off milk (raw milk), and squeezed juices with the most popular being orange juice. Water was barely consumed (unless it came in the form of soup).

    The water from fruits and vegetables isn’t the only place to get it, it also comes in meat, raw or mostly raw meat.. it’s like 20% water. Blood is also hydrating. The more you cook food, the more it dries it out, and the more it increases are need for hydration.

    Also keep in mind, if you ever end up in the hospital with hydration issues, they don’t inject you with water, but with saline instead.. salty water. Yes it’s well known water with a bit of salt in it is better to hydrate during exercise.

    A little knowledge bomb for people as it’s a minor detail people overlook but has a major impact on health. With regards with the 8 glasses of water.. it doesn’t mean we need to start consuming 8 glasses of milk or juice.. in many cases, people can get away with a single glass a day (depending on activity level).

    You will also find in people who drink water excessively will have high bilirubin counts which is the breaking down of red blood cells which obviously you don’t want in excess. There is a perfect example of water being a solvent and eroding, breaks down red blood cells. You also don’t want high bilirubin because it puts a major strain on the liver.

    Speaking from experience, my doctor nor naturopath could figure out why my oxygen saturation levels were pointing to being under-hydrated when I was consuming a gallon of water each day.. well that’s why, it was dehydrating. A simple glass of whole milk or squeezed juice will fix that. Water with a bit of salt in it works too, but not to the same level as milk or juice.

  • Surely adding salt to your water will mean that less water will diffuse into the cells.. if anything it will draw water out of the cells?

  • Great video. I don’t know if you already did it. A video about the topic: Alcohol and how it affected your body and sport function..

    Also i have one question about salt in the water. Which kind of salt do you recommend? Not all kind of salt are good for us.

  • Love the vid, love the clip of you and your wife pounding those water jugs! After binging on a ton of your videos, not only is the science invaluable (plus the added links to review the report), but I can’t stress enough the positive vibe you have in 99% of the clips. Even if I’ve watched videos on topics I am well aware of, I still have a positive sense of self afterwards, and feel like I can conquer mountains. If there’s anything to pass on to your child, it would be that…keep up the awesome work!

  • I love the science in your videos, much more useful than the videos with workouts done with no explanation or education in them����

  • Hi Thomas. I have just recently discovered your channel and I would like to say thank you. I find your Video’s extremely informative. I would love it if you could do a video on how to minimize loose skin during and after weight loss.

  • Normally I’d hate a YouTube channel self-advertising through their video like that, with the amount of information given, as well as the ad coming at the end video was great imo. Sucks the channel is so small atm tho.

  • 5:13 “If you are carrying around a gallon jug of water or something like that, add a quarter to half teaspoon of water to that sucker.”

  • So cool. I just watched ur dip vid and I asked about water and sweat amounts. After my first heat stroke I cant even go to the store without water. If I go more then an hour I began to get headache and dry mouth.if I go more then half a day I began to slow or shut down. I pea every 2 hours and I can fill 20to 30 oz bottle every time. People tell me it’s to much but it is what my body tells me.

  • 5:15 if your carrying around a gallon jug add a teaspoon of water to that sucker….
    I think he meant teaspoon of salt, lol

    We get enough salt in our modern diets and for someone who is sensitive to salt I won’t be adding any to my water

  • Hey,your information really helps! Great!!! I try to loose weight a long time,and I realize I didn’t drink enough!! I had like five coffees a day…..

  • thanks for all the videos Thomas
    I google translate and put it on my network for healt of humans and animals

  • Recently came across your channel searching for more INFORMED keto info, I love your videos! I’ve been keto for 6 months down 50 lbs and almost to my goal. Q I want to keep eating this way for life, can I slowly incorporate more healthy carbs like sweet potatoes or fruit once in awhile without kicking myself out of ketosis? TIA =)

  • Ehy Thomas, what about Dry Fasting? In that case fat loss should speed up as well as HGH even more if hydrating yourself. So what’s the most powerful? Dry fasting or water fasting? I’m not saying not to drink while eating or during your eating window but can cyclical dehydration during fasting be a good idea to boost autophagy and fat loss (meaby even combined with keto)?

  • Hey Thomas I really like your channel could you please do a video on starting a ketosis diet. I look in my cupboard and never know what to do, plus when cooking for the family following a special diet regardless of what it is just never seems doable. Can you do a video on how a busy dad like myself can get started on Keto please?

  • I’m sure that the more i drink water the more I can flush put toxins and all the liquid waste the body creates? Hence dehydration equals less toxins.

  • Im am very curios about what DeLauer would say about Psilocybin as a supplement. I used 3-4mg every 3rd day for 7 months. Basically changed my lifestyle choices completely. It probably saved my life. Psilocybin enhances connectivity in the brain and helps reconnect destructive habitual neural pathways in the brain. Really revolutionary in my opinion. This should really get more attention

  • Thomas Please Do A Video on “Mycotoxins” which I know cause inflammation but the confusion is, thinking that I am eating healthy foods but at the same time these foods are “Mycotoxins” Please help me with this…….Thank You!

  • Ok, this guy is completely clueless. YOU DONT WANNA ADD SALT TO YOUR WATER. The huge amounts of evidence for salt being harmful to our health is massive! We already get huge amounts from processed food and from salting our food. NO NEED FOR MORE.
