Dehydration

Water is essential to lypolysis (the breaking up of fat molecules for energy). If you don’t have an adequate water intake your body has a harder time burning fat. Most people do not drink enough water. The average person needs to consume half their body weight in ounces of water per day PLUS an extra 8 ounces for each 8 ounces of caffeine. Not only does water facilitate fat burning but it also helps move ketones out of your body. If you are in ketosis from eating low carb foods then you need to flush your system regularly.
