What are the effects of drinking a gallon of water a day?

Drinking plenty of water daily can help you in many ways, but here's what it can and can't do.

1-Your metabolic rate will spike

 


 

If the human body consumes 16 ounces of water in a given hour, the metabolic rate will spike by as much as 30 percent for the next 30 to 40 minutes. By committing to drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day, research says you can expect to lose more weight. Isn’t it great?

2- Workout improvement on a cellular level
 

Water is the key to healthy, well-functioning cells. So drinking enough is going to help with exercise on a cellular level. Dehydration negatively affects your workouts so be sure you stay hydrated during the whole exercise time.
 

Proper hydration also helps you maximize workouts; just don't down your entire water bottle immediately before your sweat session. Staying hydrated will increase performance across all exercise forms, but chugging water before a workout can not only cramp you up but also make you feel more sluggish and less focused on the task at hand.

3-Wrinkles will not go away any time soon
 

No matter how much you increase your water intake, your wrinkles won’t disappear. When you drink water it runs through the intestines, gets absorbed into your bloodstream, and is filtered out by the kidneys. At this point, it will hydrate the cells inside the body. Wrinkles have nothing to do with it, they are due to DNA damage from the UV light so drinking water won’t reverse that process. You can make wrinkles soften and appear less noticeable with regular use of exfoliants, retinol, barrier-repairing moisturizers, and masks.

4-You cut unnecessary calories from your diet
 

How will drinking half your weight (in ounces) in water affect your eating habits? Well, first water will replace sugary drinks, that’s great for your body. It's also important to remember that water intake doesn't just come from guzzling water—it also comes from what you eat! You naturally up your water intake by eating clean, unprocessed whole fruits and vegetables.
