What on earth does water have to do with weight loss? Actually, a lot more than you previously imagined.
Are you aware that some studies have shown that your brain cannot distinguish between hunger and thirst? Sometimes when your body is telling you that you are thirsty, your brain may be hearing that you are hungry. So what do you do? You put food in your mouth when a glass of water might have been sufficient. Most food has calories, most water doesn’t. Simple equation. ‘enough said on that topic.
By the way, ever wake up in the middle of the night and crave a snack? Nine times out of ten, a glass of water will do the trick. I know, I didn’t believe it either until I tried it. It really works!
Tissue, muscle, cells, even blood are all comprised to a large per cent of water. When your brain starts getting signals that water is needed…well, remember the confusion factor mentioned above? We eat something instead of giving our body what it really craves and needs! Your entire body works much better, by the way, when the fluid levels are kept up where they need to be.
Drinking Lots of Liquid Can Cause Weight Loss
Sure it can, but what KIND of liquid. I won’t even talk about sodas, coffee, or tea sweetened with sugar. I’m going to assume that you already know that sugar is not the way to go if you want to lose weight, but what about the artificially sweetened drinks? those are terrible and so much of us love artificial sweeteners.
Did you know that sugar can contribute to weight gain? Continue Reading…
Do Artificial Sweeteners Can Cause You To Gain Weight?
Some studies have shown that using artificial sweeteners can contribute to weight gain in at least two ways and causes diabetes.
First, there is the confusion factor. When you use artificial sweeteners, you, and your brain, become confused about the calorie content of the food you eat. You may actually find yourself eating more in an effort to satisfy an internal urge or interpretation, and this urge may be related to the assumed “fact” that the sweet soda you just drank didn’t have that many calories, so neither does this cinnamon roll. Actually, before artificial sweeteners, our bodies and brains were pretty good at relating calorie content to food based on the sweetness.
A Word For Some Parent
Our bodies’ understanding of “sweetness” and the development of the internal calorie estimating apparatus mentioned above apparently occurs in childhood. Early use of artificial sweeteners could cause the grown-up years later to ingest more of sweet foods than they should.
The second way in which artificial sweeteners may contribute to weight gain is what could be called…Sugar
The Sweetness (sugar) Trap
Your body is a complicated device which has developed a huge number of inter-related, synergistic, stimulus sensing and automatic response mechanisms. It has learned to begin things happening inside when something sweet is detected. The digestive system is prepared to receive a certain type of fuel…Which it welcomes! When you ingest food or drink which has been artificially sweetened, all your little hormones, glands, cells, and systems begin asking, “What’s going on?” Like prisoners in an old movie, they start rattling their tin cups and yelling out, “FEED ME!” Oh yeah, that was the plant in “Little Shop Of Horrors”, wasn’t it?
Anyway, your internal messengers are now not very happy, nor will they be until you send down some calories for them to munch on. See the trap? It reminds me of when I managed a restaurant when people would order a salad and diet drink and then smother the salad in high-calorie, high-fat dressing and have ice cream for dessert. Get the picture.
Hold A Minuit! It Can be Even Worst
Artificial sweeteners are much sweeter than ordinary sugar, and that’s why you can sweeten a cup of coffee with one little white pill. However, there are some studies which indicate that artificial sweeteners become somewhat addictive. If that isn’t bad enough, this brings us to one of the most popular drugs in America…
Caffeine! The Legal Drug
Even though a lot of people who want to lose weight are drinking artificially sweetened drinks, a lot of these drinks – coffee, tea, sodas – contain caffeine. Caffeine is a diuretic and also a drug that you can be addicted to. It dehydrates you, causing your body to lose water. Remember, water = good. When you are dehydrated, low on internal liquid, your metabolism slows down. This means your body gets by on fewer calories and stores the rest as fat.
Think it through: You get dehydrated, you get thirsty. You just drank a cup of tea, coffee, or soda, so you can’t be thirsty, can you? Since your brain can’t really tell the difference between hunger and thirst signals, it tells you to eat something when all that’s really going on is that you need a drink of water.
So This Is What You Should Do…
1). Substitute water for most of the other stuff you’re drinking.
2). “Buy” your artificially sweetened drinks. My wife came up with this idea, but I have seen it used in other contexts as well. If you drink an artificially sweetened drink and/or one with caffeine, buy it back with at least an equivalent sized drink of water. Eight ounces of coffee? Follow it with eight ounces of water.
3). Is water boring for you? Then try flavoring your water with lemon or something else. Use herbal teas that have their own flavor and might not even need to be sweetened.
4). Include soups and juices in your diet. These are high liquid content. Just be aware that while nutritionally better for you than diet drinks or drinks with caffeine, they DO contain calories.
5). Can’t do without sweetened drinks? Try HONEY. This is a natural food available online and at most health foods stores. While it has a sweetening effect, It does not produce the cravings for more food as do other non-sugar sweeteners. But I tried Honey and that’s how it worked for me. I was drinking four to six cups of coffee sweetened with artificial sweeteners a day, I started using HONEY, and the desire for constant snacking went away. I will warn you, while technically VERY sweet, it does have an acquired taste. I figure if I could get used to it, anybody could. It’s the best sweetener to use.
