For normal physiological and digestive processes to occur, you must consume adequate amounts of water. A large percentage of people trying to shed body fat will hit a sticking point where, in particular, abdominal fat just doesn't want to shift. In most cases this is down to poor digestion and along with digestive enzyme supplements (Digestive MX), correct intake of water for your body weight will play a key role in shifting that stubborn fat. Biochemical reactions related to digestion and metabolism depend on the presence of water, and without enough water food moves more slowly through your body and metabolism becomes sluggish. The faster your metabolism, the faster you can lose fat! You should be drinking at least half your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water a day.
