Drink plenty of water throughout the day – eight or more glasses. As soon as you wake up start your day with a cold 16 ounce glass of water. Drinking water is one of the most rapid weight loss tips that dietitians suggest to people and leads to 100+ calories extra burned a day. Also, if you are exercising with Chair-A-Cise, my chair exercise weight loss and toning program, I suggest you drink at least 100 ounces of water because the exercises cause you to really work up a sweat! And the more hydrated you are; the more energy you have to push yourself thru the exercises.
