The Truth About Drinking More Water (and Losing Weight)
You’ve heard it a handful of times: drinking water helps you lose weight. But how, why, and is it true? In short, yes, drinking water really can help you slim down. However, maybe not for the same reasons you think:
Drink before you eat
Water is an appetite suppressant, so drinking a glass before meals can make you feel fuller and make you less likely to binge. In fact, WebMD states that “drinking water before meals results in an average reduction in intake of 75 calories per meal”. That means you’d lose about eight pounds per year just because you’re drinking more water!
Drink it cold
Drink more water, and drink it cold. WebMD also claims that drinking ice cold water boosts your metabolism because your body needs to work harder to warm it up, leading you to burn more calories (hence, lose weight).
Drink it often
If you’re also hitting the gym to slim down, make sure you’re especially drinking more water. This natural fluid helps prevent muscle cramps and keeps joints lubricated, meaning you can work out longer and harder - plus, it feels refreshing post-workout.
