5. Boosts Your Metabolism
You really NEED water! When you drink more than the bare minimum to survive, you boost your metabolism. According to press.endocrine.org, "Drinking 500 ml of water increased metabolic rate by 30%" within 10 minutes. Obviously, you'll be drinking much more than 500 mL (about 2 cups) of water a day, so your body will get a continuous metabolism boost! Having a faster metabolism will mean that your body burns through food more quickly and you won't gain as much weight.
