water is said to reduce weight however it works best if you drink water before/during a meal and if you drink water on a regular basis. a lot of people do benefit from water because it cleanses the body. i dont think there will be side effects to water and i do think it is good for health. the only side effects you can get are for the better.

Water is good for health that no one can deny the fact.But, if you say you dring around 10 litres a day it is a bad living isn't it?anything in excess is really bad and water is not an exception here and drinking water more than alimit is also bad for kidney as it has to take extra bit of load and might lead to some effects later on who know's...some people use the water therapy for reducing body weight and i do think that it is really bad for opting this method as this might lead to bad effects later for sure.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Everybody know;s that water is good.But, to a limit it is good and not beyond limits as i believ in one thing, beyond limits, everything is bad and water is not an exception here.Drinking more water and reducing body weight is a new therapy followed by many these day's and i personally don't prefer this kind of therapy for reducing body weight as i think, it will definitely have side effects for sure... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Result will be there when you consume water more than alimit...but, is it good reducing your body weight this way? doesn't it have any side effects ? more than limits, everything is bad and water is not an exception for that as even kidney will have to take overload if you are drinking more than a limit of water....don't you think so? Anyway's, thanks for responding

Consuming any sort of beverage prior to consuming a meal will make you feel full, thus, you will consume less food. This helps you to lose weight in a sensible way. I've never heard of consuming more water to lose weight.

Yes....this is true that consuming any sort of beverage will make you full but i don't think you will lose your eating habits by doing like this.Suppose if you consider drinking 10 cups of coffee per day, don't you feel like eating that day....definitely it is a wrong conception on your part and according to me , only drinking excess water will make you reduce your appetite and you will tend to eat less.....and in the process you will reduce body weight and to tell you, many peopel are into this new therapy which you maynot be aware off...but, i personally won't prefer this as i feel it might have side effects for sure.... Anyway's, thanks for responding

Yes, it keeps your body full, therefore it doesn't make you as hungry, it also helps your digestive system.

One thing is definite...as you said..water does keep your body full and we maynot feel hunger most of the time only if we take more water...isn't it? but, more than a limit of water may also kill the hunger for ever......don't you think so...i mean, taking more than a limit of water is too bad definitely......anyway's, nice to see you reply back

I have never heard that before. Its possible that it does but it doesnt seem likley. I think it may have lasting effect on your kidneys later but not negative . At least I hope not. Its good to drink what so it must be ok to consume large amounts

My friend is an living example for this kind of therapy .He started this therapy 2 months back and he has already lost 25 k.g in these 2 months and now he feels he has lost too much and now wants to gain a little bit of weight..i tyink, by taking too much water, you will reduce your appetite and obviously by eating less and drinking more one might tend to lose weight.....

I have never heard about that... But if it works, it's a pretty easy way to loose weight! I don't really think there would be any side effects of it, only that you need to go to the bathroom all the time... hehe :P

There is a therapy called "Water Therapy" and it also works....but, beyond limits everything is bad.I know one friend of mine who started this water therapy and lost around 25 k.g weight within 2 months...but, now he is feeling he has lost too much weight and he is struggling to gain weight now...maybe this is one of its side effects..i don't know... Anyway's...thanks for responding

There will be side effects. Drinking too much water can and will deplete your body of potassium which can greatly affect you. water is good for your kidneys and skin but you should not drink more than 32oz. a day.It might make you feel full temperarily.

Yes...what you are saying does makes sense.As anything in excess is bad and water is not an exception here....isn't it? maybe drinking around 10 glasses a day is very good for health...but, if one starts drinking more than 20-25 glasses a day, kidney also might have to take overload and it might show it's own side efefcts...isn't it? Anyway's...thanks for responding
