Drinking Water Proven to Help Weight Loss
September 18, 2010
A new study has found that obese dieters who drank two cups of water before each meal lost 5 pounds more after three months. A year later, they also kept more of the weight off.
The dieting technique is well known, but this study may be the first hard evidence that increasing your water intake is a useful weight-loss strategy.
According to Discovery News:
“The reason could be physical. According to some research, water consumption might spark the body to produce more heat, boosting metabolism and burning more calories. Or, drinking more water might simply make people less likely to drink a lot of high-calorie sugar-filled beverages.”
