Benefits of Drinking Water

I have written quite a few times about the importance of drinking water but last week I restarted a strategy that I had followed for a long time and then gave up.

Benefits of Drinking water first thing in the morning.

The idea is to get up and immediately drink four glasses of water and nothing else. Wait at least 45 minutes before having any coffee or tea or breakfast.

Why would you want to do this? Well I have always known the benefits of drinking water and used to do this drinking water before getting on the bike to ride to work, actually I did it for a couple of years and had a lot of energy in the morning. I never knew if the energy was from drinking the water or from the bike ride itself.

There are several reasons why you would want to drink a lot of water first thing in the morning

  • Drinking water in the morning  will give you energy – The water you drink first think will kick up your metabolism right away and the coldness seems to be a bit invigorating.
  • Drinking water in the morning will start your rehydration – We lose our hydration at night from breathing out moist air and since we take nothing in and are losing water to digestion we really do get dehydrated.
  • Drinking water in the morning will help you lose weight  – When you drink water in the morning you will find that you have less appetite since you already have the water in your stomach fooling your brain into thinking that you are not hungry.

    I started drinking a liter of water every morning. I have two questions. When I drink that much water I don’t feel like eating anything until lunchtime and breakfast is important so how should I handle that. Also I usually run in the mornings, but I’ve been struggling with my runs since I started drinking water. Can I wait until after I run or should it really be first thing after waking up?

    I am drinking 1 litre of plain water more than a 1 year in the morning at 5.00 o’ Clock. 1 litre of water in rest of the day. I used to get acid reflux and severe headaches. Is it because, I used to consume 4-5 glass of coffee in a day. After this water therapy (!), Now I am free from acid re flux and head aches. In websites, I saw, 2 glasses of lemon water is good for health. I am also confused to drink lemon water or plain water. Can I drink Plain water first and after 1 hour can I take 200 ml of Lemon water? Will it benefit my health. Awaiting your reply.

    Been on the water therapy for 6 weeks now. I have hypertension and currently taking two kinds to ease out my blood pressure everyday. After going through the water therapy, I rarely take my blood pressure any longer since it went back to normal as it was used to be back in the old days. Back pain is gone is as well and it felt I have more energy than before.

    Will continue to do it and see how it goes but the results are very promising and convincing.

    Don’t do it if you have gastritis or other stomach problems. You do this and either you will get a stomach ulcer or if you already have the ulcer it will become bigger. People with sensible stomach shouldn’t drink water with their stomach empty because acidity will increase. That’s why stomach problems are a pain in the ass. They risk dying from malnutrition or simply dehydrate because they need to intake water with food in their stomachs to prevent the increase in acidity. Not something you wanna have, but hey, if you eat healthy you shouldn’t get stomach problems in the first place, unless its genetic.
