We love sharing tips from Michelle Lovitt, Zobha brand ambassador and trainer to the stars! Every time we talk to Michelle she emphasizes the importance of staying hydrated and making sure you’re drinking enough water before, during, and after your workout. This is an especially important tip for runners, or anyone that is burning a lot of calories through sweat in their workout, but the truth is, we all need to make sure we’re getting enough water and staying hydrated!
The human body is made up of about 60% water. It’s no wonder we need so much of it! Drinking adequate amounts of water is critical for our bodies to function properly.
Being properly hydrated also helps the body use more fat during aerobic exercise. If you are exercising to burn fat, be sure to consume at least 64 ounces of water per day, plus an additional 16 ounces for every hour of moderate-intensity. Fat is excreted primarily through urine, sweat, and carbon dioxide when released in the air from your lungs. If dehydrated, the body isn’t efficient at excreting the fat from the body.
