Drinking Water

If you lost 21 pounds of water weight in 2 days and that was all you wanted to lose how can you drink water again without all the weight coming back?

working out at least one day a week. and try some other liquids for one that is very dangerous because it is dangerous to lose 10 percent or more of your body weight through water losses. and two your probably wrong about how much water weight you lost because a marathon runner can lose up to 13 pounds of water weight during a 26-mile race.The weight you want to lose is fat, not water. water weight is quickly regained when body fluids are replenished. Even a small percentage weight drop due to water loss will make you feel uncomfortable. When you lose two percent of body weight in fluids, your body will become aware of it and your body will start to take steps in conserving water in this case you might even gain more water weight because you will get thirsty and replace the water lost but your body is still conserving so you gain more water weight.Mental concentration is affected as fluid losses increase. A 10-11 percent drop in body weight due to water losses can result in serious organ malfunctions. So the best thing to do is check again on how much water weight you lost and if you were correct than go to a hospital and when you are back to a normal state one of the easyest and healthiest ways to lose weight is to exercise and drink plenty of water while exercising.
