Here is a question that comes up on occasion from people using the TRIM. So what do we do? We ask a friend with a vast knowledge in the field of nutrition and supplementation what SHE thinks, and this is what our friend and colleague, Keli McBride shared with us.
Question: Why do I feel thirsty and ‘dehydrated’ when using the TRIM?
Answer: “Increasing your metabolism the way TRIM does it uses water up quickly to burn fat so you require more. With regard to metabolism, water helps the body to burn the calories it takes in through eating. With dehydration, your metabolism slows down. … A study showed that increased intake of water promotes body weight loss through decreased eating and fat loss via lipolysis.”
This is a great answer from Keli and she decided to take it a step further by doing some additional information from a website.
Then I found the below information on a website…….
The Link Between 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 is involved with almost every biological function in the body, so therefore your body’s metabolism slows down in a dehydrated state. When your body does not have adequate amounts of water, your calorie burning machines (muscles) slow down dramatically. Over 70% of your muscle consists of water, so when they are not fully hydrated their ability to generate energy is severely inhibited.
Another important factor to understand is – your body’s ability to utilize fat as fuel is also restricted when you are in a dehydrated state. Combine these two factors and you have one slow metabolism!
The list of negative side effects to your metabolism due to dehydration is endless. The effect of dehydration is often overlooked, and in fact it should be one of the priorities of any healthy eating plan.
Taking in a sufficient amount of water, is the first step in assuring your metabolism is working at its optimal level.
Remember…your body can’t distinguish between hunger and thirst, so when your tummy is rumbling and you think it’s in need of food, it could just be telling you that it needs some water. Have a big glass of water first and if you are still hungry 15 minutes later then have something to eat. If you’re thinking my mouth gets dry when I’m thirsty, that’s how I can tell, then give this a thought…once your mouth gets dry and you feel thirsty, you are already dehydrated…therefore your body and your metabolism is already in a sluggish dehydrated state!
I hope that makes you think twice about how much water you intake each day! I find that the best way to make sure you are getting at least 2 litres, is to fill up a 2 litre bottle first thing in the morning, and make sure it has gone by the time you go to bed. Just remember you will need more on the days you exercise and in the hot weather!” – end of research and quote.
Another rule of thumb….. drink 1/2 ounce of water for every pound you weigh. (see example to the left, also stated: Drink half your body weight in water!)
Example: If you weigh 150 pounds drink 75 ounces of water per day. If you are active and sweat a lot, drink more!
