You Must Drink Water With Hoodia

Although the weight loss supplement hoodia is not a diuretic in itself it does have a side effect that you need to pay attention to.  Not only does this remarkable food cut your appetite but it also cuts your thirst. This means that you can get dehydrated while using it and not even notice because your brain will not give your body the message to “drink more water.”

Furthermore some hoodia formulas are “cut” with green tea powder or green tea extract. Green tea is a very powerful diuretic and between the more frequent visits to the bathroom and the natural lack of desire to drink caused by the hoodia you could find yourself lacking the basic eight eight ounce glasses of water a day that you are supposed to be drinking just to stay healthy. In fact, while dieting doctors recommend that you drink even more than that so that you detoxify in a safe and healthy way.

So how much water you should you be drinking while you are taking hoodia? Doctors and fitness experts recommend drinking half of your body weight in ounces a day in water. For example, if you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink at least 80 ounces of water per day Drinking half your body weight in ounces a day of water will aid your metabolism in breaking down fat cells and flushing out toxins.

If you exercise you should drink another eight-ounce glass of water for every 20 minutes you are active on the treadmill or other piece of exercise equipment. When taking hoodoo you must drink water before during and after exercise simply because your natural thirst mechanism may not kick in as usual.

An athlete should drink ten to fourteen ounces of cold water one to two hours before a sports activity. During exercise the athlete should drink three to four ounces of cold water every fifteen minutes.  The thing about hoodia is it can make you feel very elated and like you can go on exercising forever. There is also something about the food supplement that makes you feel less sore when you exercise. Given this it is so important to ward off any type of post exercise fatigue or other complications by making sure you drink as much water as possible while on Hoodia

A sports drink or diluted fruit juice may be used if that encourages you to drink more fluids but remember that these types of beverages could contain some calories in the form of sweeteners or labels.  If you get bored with drinking plain water there are some sugar free sweetened drinks on the market that are not carbonated.
