Does Drinking Water Help You To Lose Weight?
Drinking Water can help with weight loss goals as a study found in 2016. If you're not a fan of plain water you can flavour water naturally with fruit or herbs like apple, oranges, strawberries, lemon and mint. Drinks like green tea, coffee, tea and other herbal teas also contribute to daily liquid intake goals.
Drinking water before a meal can also mean you eat less as the stomach is lined with water which prevents overeating.
Increasing intake of water throughout the day can also reduce dehydration. Thirst can sometimes be mistaken for hunger. Try drinking more water as you may be dehydrated rather than needing something to eat..
Drinking water boosts the metabolism. Drinking cold water compared to room temperature water has been shown to burn up to 3% more calories.
For busy days keep a water bottle handy and an hourly timer on your phone to remind you to take a sip!
