I’m plugging away on the challenge and started to wonder a ridiculous question… what ARE the benefits of all the water? I ask because when weight is stalling, Naomi or Nicole will ask “are you getting enough water?”
I know it helps keeps you satisfied when you’re hungry and that your body needs it to replenish water from life/work outs… but are there other benefits? I’m just super curious!
Thanks for everything 🙂

Hi Jennifer- absolutely, that is a great question! Water is necessary for every single cell in our body to function optimally, which can have a domino affect on our hormones, metabolism, and a a host of other human mechanics and processes. If we don’t drink enough water, especially when working out as much as we are during the challenge, it would be like throwing a screech in a factory assembly line.
– maximize physical performance
– affects energy levels and brain function
– helps aid in digestion (prevents being “stopped up”)
– aids in function of liver and kidneys in detoxing
– increases satiety
– boots metabolism by increasing energy expenditure

I hope this helps 🙂 Good luck with the rest of the challenge, and drink up! 😉April 18, 2019 at 6:30 am #249996
