It is important to remember that our bodies need hydration. Water is an absolute necessity for proper functioning of the human body. During your time on our hCG weight loss program, it is essential that you remain hydrated and consume the required amount of water each day to see the best weight loss results. Sometimes, dehydration can manifest as hunger. For some individuals, the signal for hunger and thirst may become very similar. The signal for water or hydration can often be confused by our bodies as a signal for food. If you know you have recently eaten and feel a sense of hunger, try 16 ounces of water and then assess your hunger level in 5 minutes. Water is not only great for detoxing, but different combinations can be helpful for other health issues. Here are a few that you may find helpful:
• If you are feeling stressed; we suggest you add some strawberry basil and lime to your water.
• If you have a headache or want fat burning digestion; drink some green tea mint and lime.
• If you are looking to boost your immune system or you have heartburn add cucumber, mint, ginger and lemon to your water.
If you are an individual who struggles with drinking water because of the taste, think that water is boring, or just want something different, then here are some ingredients you can add to water to make it more enjoyable:
