In The News: More Research That Suggests Drinking Water Before Meals Helps With Weight Loss!

Haven't we all heard time and time again to "drink more water!".... and especially before meals because it will help us eat less?  Well a recent study has investigated just that!  The research published in the journal Obesity, involved 84 obese results, 41 randomly assigned to the intervention group and 43 to the control group. All of the participants received a weight management consultation, where they were counseled on how to adapt their lifestyle and improve their diet and levels of physical activity.  Those recruited for the intervention group were asked to preload with 500 ml of water before each meal.  The results showed that those drinking the water lost almost 3 pounds more than the control group by the end of the 12 weeks follow up. These are exciting results that such a simple measure can make a reasonable difference for those trying to lose weight.  Check out the summary in the study HERE!
