Magic Pill for Weight Loss


Maybe we found the magic pill for weight loss!

When it comes to weight loss everyone wonders “why can’t scientists invent a magic pill?” Somewhere out there, I am sure the research for this magic pill is being funded and kept a secret. Until this day this creation is brought to the human world, I have a second option.

 The second option is something that mother nature has allowed us access to, since the day we were born. It is none other than, WATER! It may not be the first thing to come to mind when you think of a “magic pill” but hear me out.

Water has many great benefits for health and weight loss. Living in North America water is easy to come by and it is free (just saved you a few hundreds of dollars a week).

What water does:

  • Helps manage weight & regulate body temperature.
  • Increases feelings of satiety(fuller) at meals which can prevent overeating.
  • Helps to lubricate your joints.
  • Helps muscle contractions.
  • Helps flush away toxins in the body.
  • Keeps your skin healthy.
  • Helps burn more calories.
  • Keeps the body hydrated which results in proper brain and bodily functions.


I am skeptical to be able to find a pharmaceutical drug that has the same, if not more benefits, with zero side effects.

New colorful water bottle.

The point of the colorful bottle is to act as a reminder while at work or school. With all the things we have on our desks a bright bottle will stick out like a sore thumb and help you keep up with the habit. When looking to purchase a water bottle opt for either, a stainless steel or a BPA-Free bottle.

Time Keeper.

This is more for the individuals who like to take note of everything. For example, someone who has all their clothes organized by colour and size. The goal here is to mark down the time that you drank and the amount, keeping track of it in a notebook. For example, an easy way to start is to drink 250ml every hour and soon enough work your way up to 500ml.

Me vs. You

Me vs. you is great for those with a competitive edge. You and a friend can make it a goal to see who can drink the most water in a day. To set it up, give yourself a water maximum(we don’t need to be consuming 10L of water in one day). Set the limit at 3-4L and see achieve this task the most days of the week. This can help to keep you to be accountable.


The 1-2-3-4 premise works by increasing each week, the amount of water you drink per day. This step ladder approach is great for the people who rarely drink water. Begin by drinking 1L of water a day. After every successful week increase the volume by 500ml. This will help you become accustom to drinking more water.


  • Buy a colorful water bottle.
  • Keep track and mark down the time of consumption.
  • Start with 1L of water per day and increase by 500ml per week.
  • Get a friend involved.
