The Facts About Drinking Water and Weight Loss
by Alecia Corban-Hart
glasses of water within 20 to 30 minutes of a meal lost weight more quickly than
those who do not drink water before a meal.

In a separate study publisher in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association it
was found that people who drank water before meals ended up consuming 75 less
calories during that meal. That may not sound like a lot, but 75 calories each meal is
225 less calories a day, or nearly 1600 calories a week you can cut out of your diet
just by drinking some water!

Lastly, it has been shown that your body does not know the difference between
hunger and thirst. So, when you are feeling hungry drinking some water can curb the
appetite and satiate your body as if you have eaten. This is part of the reason why
drinking water before each meal is so effective, you are "tricking" your body into
thinking it is getting part of a meal. Also, it is said that drinking warm water or tea
also helps curb the appetite, so if water is not your thing go for tea instead and still
get the benefits.

Even with all the research some people still question whether or not too much water
is in fact too much of a good thing. And the short answer is yes, drinking entirely too
much water over the course of a day will negate many of the positive benefits of
drinking water. Now, it is important to know that we are not talking about eight or
nine glasses of water a day as being excessive, but hundreds of ounces, so most of
us have nothing to worry about there.

There you have it, what we knew all along backed up by research. The answer is yes,
in fact, drinking enough water each and every day will help you lose weight, and
consume less calories. So what are you waiting for? Head to the kitchen and fill your
glass up!
