Dehydration and Metabolism…

When people are trying to lose weight and shred fat their main goal to long-term weight management should be to raise their metabolism (rate in which your body uses energy).  What most people fail to realize is that their hydration level directly affects their metabolism.

Water which is one of the most important things is the most neglected by individuals today. We all know that we should consume roughly 2.5 to 3 liters of water every day, but the question is how many of us actually follow that? We drink water only when we realize we are thirsty.

If we reach a level wherein our body has to demand for water we have already wronged ourselves. The problem is that many of us have trouble deciding when we are thirsty.

You lose water through sweat, urine, feces and your breath. Hot temperatures and physical exertion increase the rate at which you lose water. You need water to enable your body to keep eliminating the toxins generated, to produce digestive enzymes, maintain healthy skin, hair, organs and to help your body absorb essential vitamins, minerals and natural sugars. Water also regulates your body temperature, cooling you down by evaporating through your skin.

When cells are deprived water, or fluid, they shrink slightly. The body senses the change in cell size and uses it as a signal to slow metabolism. When people experience 3 percent dehydration, their metabolism diminishes by about 2 percent. If you regularly burn 2,000 calories, which means you burn about 40 calories fewer per day.


The list of negative side effects to your metabolism due to dehydration is never-ending.  The effect of dehydration is often overlooked, and in fact it should be one of the priorities of any healthy eating plan.
Taking in adequate amount of water, is the first step in assuring your metabolism is working at its optimal level. Dehydration can make you lethargic and tired — interfering with your daily movement, which makes up 30 percent of your metabolism.
