Water is the single most important fluid for you. When you do not have enough of it, your whole body feels weaker. It is needed for every process in body.
1. Amount to drink
Generally advised is to drink 6-8 glasses per day. This, however, depends on your body weight and your goal. Higher weight and unordinary goals require more amounts of water. Every time you ask yourself how much you are gonna drink this day, the answer should be - more.
2. Water cleans body
It clears your body of toxins and other unneeded stuff. It's important while on protein diet to get rid of excessive nitrogen, urea, and ketones.
Your kidneys are dependant on water, and if they do not get enough of it, they can't function properly. Their job is then transferred to liver, which will process much less fat when doing both it's and kidneys' job, and will store the fat in body instead.
Water can also suppress your hunger and make you feel more full.
4. Fluid retention
Although it may logically seem opposite, water actually rids your body of excess water. This happens because of body getting used to receive a lot water every day, and it excluded the water stored in extra-cellular space. As a result of this, your muscles will get more toned and shredded.
