Everyone knows that water is essential for all life. But did you know the importance of adequate water in regard to weight loss? For me, post-weightloss surgery seems to be a chore to get my portions consumed. Sometimes water hurts my stomach if I forget and drink it too fast or if it is too cold.
Right after I had my surgery, I noticed that even the smallest amount of water I drank would affect my stomach – like seriously. However, I found out that I was still healing and that was the reason for the pain and the fact that I needed to really reduce the actual amount I drank to just sips at a time. Be sure to talk to your doctor if you have similar issues.
I finally discovered that – in drinking adequate amounts of water that I was not so gassy and that it actually helped the digestive tract because it moves food through your system.
