If you want to reduce your weight, you need water because it will help you to maintain your digestion at a healthy level and it will also help you to get rid of accumulated fluids in the body. The recommended daily amount of water is different, because it depends on your needs and the level of physical activity, as well as on the type of food you consume, since some fruits and vegetables contain a high percentage of water (watermelons, potatoes etc).
