Good Hydration Promotes Weight Loss

Drink a glass of water when you wake and before each meal

If you drink more water, you’re less likely to drink other sugary beverages such as soda, fruit juices and energy drinks. This is one of the most significant factors in achieving weight loss.

Recent students reveal that adults who were chronically under-hydrated had higher body mass index (BMI) and were more likely to be obese compared to well-hydrated adults. Researchers agree that a well-hydrated adult drink half their body weight in ounces daily. So if you weigh 140 lbs. you need to drink at least 70 ounces of water per day.

Other studies have found that drinking 1 cup of water prior to meals resulted in the loss of an additional 4 to 9 pounds of weight over three months compared to not preloading with water.
