More specifically, you want help with Can Drinking More Water Help You Lose Weight??
so recently someone had a question will drinking more water help me lose weight so I want to quickly answer it okay they may have missed my earlier videos on this so I’m just gonna do a new video on this so you can watch a lot of YouTube videos that will tell you that drinking water will help you lose weight and they’ll say it’s scientifically proven so they pretty much have three points that they talk about the water will replace these calories from food and of course you’re going to eat less and eating less ends up causing you to lose more weight okay well where do you know that a low calorie diet doesn’t work okay it’s gonna cause you to be more hungry what you want to do is you want to switch your body over into ketones ketones are a better fuel source and most people have a tremendous amount of potential energy or fat to tap into to get them to lose weight so drinking more water does not cause you to tap into fat loss okay next thing you talk about is it will reduce hunger and sometimes they’ll they’ll say that well when you’re hungry it really means that you’re thirsty so you if you drink more water it’ll trick your body into satisfying your hunger well maybe for a little bit until you have to peel the water out but as far as water goes it it’s not the best thing to reduce hunger you want to again adapt your body into burning fat so your hunger completely just goes away okay so to do that you want to drop insulin insulin is the key hormone that makes you hungry for two reasons one is it stimulates hunger and number two it’ll drop your blood sugars and that alone will cause you to be hungry so to reduce insulin you want to reduce your carbs and decrease the frequency of eating okay if you do that your body will adapt and you will not be hungry okay so drinking water is a trick to reduce hunger is just basically a waste of time all right and the other thing they say is that water will stimulate your metabolism absolutely not true what will stimulate your metabolism is lowering the dominating hormones that will nullify all six fat burning hormones okay so these hormones are the fat making hormones insulin estrogen in cortisol these three slow your metabolism there are six evaporating hormones that will help you burn fat and water isn’t one of those hormones so we have insulin cutting carbs reducing the frequency of eating reducing insulin let’s say you’re taking birth control pills well that can add more estrogen and slow down your weight loss or you’re consuming a lot of soy which is a bit estrogenic that could be a problem or you’re on hormone replacement therapy then we have cortisol which is activated by stress and one of the symptoms of high cortisol is belly fat but what the body is doing it’s converting protein into fat so and it’s through the action of insulin so really cortisol triggers insulin which then makes you fat especially in your midsection right through in here and then we have exercise high intensity interval training and compound resistant training and good sleep will help you stimulate your metabolism if you think about it when you go to sleep if you weigh yourself and when you wake up it’ll actually be a little less versus wearing yourself in the morning and then weighting yourself at night you won’t see much difference so when you sleep you trigger growth hormone and you actually are your metabolism is actually burning fat so it’s totally okay to drink water and especially if you’re predisposed to having kidney stones so there’s a condition called hyponatremia which is over hydration drinking way too much water and the danger of that is that you deplete your electrolytes specifically sodium and that can create heart problems but again it’s okay to drink water and I’m not opposed to that might be a good idea to add electrolytes to it but just don’t ever force yourself to drink like gallons and gallons of water especially if you’re exercising because that could be a problem especially if you’re not taking your salt all right guys thanks for watching I’ll see you next video so I wanna thank you for being here and watching my videos if you haven’t already subscribed go ahead and do so so you can stay informed of future videos

In this video, Dr. Berg explains if drinking water helps you lose weight.
• The water will replace calories from food that could cause you to eat less, and eating less causes to lose more weight.
• Reduced hunger – Let your body adapt to the burning of fat to make your hunger completely go away.
• Stimulates metabolism – This is NOT true. Lowering the dominating hormones (estrogen, insulin, and cortisol) that can nullify all 6 fat-burning hormones can stimulate the metabolism – also with exercise and good quality of sleep.
Ways to Reduce Hunger:
• Lower insulin – Insulin is the key hormone that makes you hungry. Reduce insulin by reducing carbs and decrease the frequency of eating.
• Lower estrogen.
• Lower cortisol.
