water to lose weight

by Socorro
(United States)

I have a daughter that drinks water like crazy. If you were to measure how much water she drinks, it would probably be a water cooler and a half(and that is just during the day). Yet she has gained weight and is suffering with killer migraines and constipation. Where is the good in drinking so much water? I wish I had a way to help her.

Water,Constipation & Weight Gain/Loss
by: Carol

I too drink a lot of water yet have gained a substantial amount of weight. I also suffer from severe constipation & have been diagnosed with Colonic Inertia.I am dehydrating all over which is very surprising as water is almost all I drink these days.My water is going somewhere & we don't know where. No water in my colon,leaking fluid from my brain,my spine,etc. In spite of the fact that I drink tons of water every day & night,my mouth,throat & lips stay so dry that they split open & bleed. I DO use different lip balms. They are wanting to do a Total Colectomy with Iliostomy on me yet they fear I won't make it through surgery.I recently tried some Probiotics & I began having B.M.'s on my own again. But I have to take 3x the amount I'm supposed to. I went down to 2 a day (you're only supposed to take 1 a day)& I quit going. So I guess I need to go back to 3 a day again. Anyone else with this problem I suggest to try the probiotic before you let them cut you open.

Weight Gain and Migraines
by: Anonymous

Hi Socorro,

Whilst drinking water is certainly beneficial, there are so many other factors that can affect someone's ability to lose weight.

Plus, if your daughter is suffering from constipation and migraines I suggest examining her diet first and seeing if there is something you can modify there. Perhaps consider adding some psyllium husks to help her overcome the constipation first.

Incidentally, the constipation may be contributing to her weight gain and it may not be fat!

Furthermore, there may be some foods that she is allergic to and that is causing the migraines. Perhaps try removing the dairy and wheat- based foods from her diet entirely for a month and see if that has any impact.

Also, the migraines may be hormonally related or may be as a result of structural issues with the spine, i.e. impingement on nerves.

Socorro, I wish your daughter all the best and I hope you can help her overcome these health issues.

Please let me know how you go.
