Researchers Discover Water Trick for Weight Loss

Trying to lose weight? Here’s a simple trick that might help: Drink two glasses of water a half hour before every meal.

That’s the upshot of new research by the University of Birmingham that found obese individuals who drink 500 ml (about two cups) of water before eating lose more weight than others engaging in more complicated diet plans.

“The beauty of these findings is in the simplicity. Just drinking a pint of water, three times a day, before your main meals may help reduce your weight,” said Helen Parretti, who helped conduct the study.

“When combined with brief instructions on how to increase your amount of physical activity and on a healthy diet, this seems to help people to achieve some extra weight loss — at a moderate and healthy rate. It’s something that doesn’t take much work to integrate into our busy everyday lives.
