If you’re on a diet, you are surely aware of how important water is. Most especially when you are taking HCG Injections. It is advisable to know how much water you are consuming whether it may be too much or not enough. Here are some important notes that you should know about taking water while on an HCG diet:

Water Requirements
According to the HCG diet creator, Dr. A.T.W Simeons, the dieters are only allowed to drink only water, coffee, tea or water. They must drink at least two liters or half a gallon of water per day.

Is there such thing as too much water intake?
The answer is yes. If your water intake increases than your sodium intake during your diet, it can lower the sodium level of your body. And too much water combined with a low sodium can cause a condition known as hyponatremia. It is a condition that occurs when the level of sodium in your blood is abnormally low.  Symptoms may include to headache, dizziness, fatigue, and even fainting in some cases.

How to know if you’re drinking enough water?
Following Dr. Simeons advice while taking HCG Injections is a great guideline to stick to the plan. But here are the ways to know if you are in right track in the water drinking scale:

Check your urine. Every morning, check the color of your urine. Typically, the smaller the amount and the darker the urine is, the more you are dehydrated.

Weigh yourself. Our body is made up of over 60% water, and we need water replacement to rid our bodies of excess sodium. If you’re not drinking enough water and your body is dehydrated, your body is actually going to hold on to water and you may see irregular rising on the scale. For example, you have a jump up of salt intake, then your body is retaining water to compensate for all the sodium you took in.

What kind of water is advisable with HCG Diet?
According to Dr. Simeons, HCG takers must drink mineral water during Phase 2 of the diet.

How does water help the diet?

First, when you’re on a diet, your menu choices is limited. That’s why many people turn to over-seasoning their food to make it more satisfying. If you drink the required liters per day, you can mitigate most of the water retention caused by too much salt intake.

Secondly, since the goal of taking HCG Injections is to lose body fat, following Dr. Simeons’ water protocol will release toxic substances that were stored in the body’s fat cells. These toxins need to be processed by the liver and flushed out of the body. Without enough water, the liver cannot do its job properly, so it is essential that a person in a diet drink enough water every day.

Lastly, without enough water, we will be often confused with the body signals between thirst and hunger. A person in a diet can feel hungry when the body is actually thirsty. Keeping the body well hydrated will help alleviate the urge to snack or eat inappropriately.

To maintain optimal health and to be able to maximize your diet, our body needs to have enough amount of water. Consider keeping a fresh and clean bottle of water at your work desk, bag or inside your car every day!
