Water Might Help Melt Off Fat

Looking for a simple weight loss strategy that doesn't involve a lot of calculations or confusing rules? Drink two 8 ounce cups of water right before eating. According to a study presented at the American Chemical Society's annual meeting that's all it took for subjects to lose 30% more weight than a group of overweight subjects who didn't drink water before meals. After 12 weeks of following a lot-fat, low-calorie diet, the water drinkers lost an average of 15.5 pounds compared to the 11 pounds lost by those who didn't fill up with ordinary water.

True Strength Moment: Satiety, a feeling of fullness, is an important aspect of any diet. The subjects in this study filled themselves up with water before eating and successfully reduced the number of calories they otherwise might have eaten. Here's another easy tip you can apply to your diet strategy: Put your eating utensils down between bites. Getting the knife and fork out of your hands slows your food consumption rate and gives your brain's satiety mechanism the 15 to 20 minutes it needs to fully engage. Try both of these strategies to see how they impact your physique goals.
