How I lost 13 kgs in 4 months

Not sure how, but i have managed to do it.  Yup, without any major effort or cutting down on food intake or exercising or even getting any illness, i have managed to cut down 13 kgs since the beginning of this year.  The only thing i have changed on course of my food has been an increase in the amount of water intake.

Earlier i hardly drank much fluids.  At the beginning of this year, i wanted to bring my Body Mass Index (BMI) level below 25 (healthy range) and so started drinking between 3-4 liters of water / juices per day.  What started off as a chore has finally become a normal routine now.

The main reason why i started looking at cutting down my weight was for the simple reason that i felt my weight was increasing and so was my tummy.  But what was the final call was the nagging pain that i started having once in a while in my knees.  It was becoming certain that my knees were unable to carry the weight of my body and something drastic had to be done.  Not to mention that iam on the wrong side of 30 already.

I start off my day with a glass of water and then a glass of tea. At work, i have a 1 liter water bottle which i fill up with water the moment i come to work.  I finish the bottle twice a day. After i go home, i drink another 1 litre plus of water by the time i go to bed.

It has worked well, the trousers are loose, i can finally feel my tummy has flattened.  Now, its time for me to start exercising so that i can build up some muscles.

PS: Overdrinking of water is also dangerous.  It flushes out a lot of important chemicals that are needed for the body.  If you feel giddy or weak, its best to relook at the process.  Losing weight is good  as long as its done in a slow and steady manner.

And now for the hardest part.  Trying to keep the weight constant.
