Drink water before meal to lose weight

Water is essential to the human body and constitutes 75% of muscle, 90% of brain, 22% of bone, and 83% of blood. Vital bodily processes like regulating body temperature and carrying oxygen and nutrients to body cells rely on water.  One thing that recent studies have found to be affected by water intake is weight loss.

Research on water weight loss

A research conducted in Virginia, USA studied the effects of drinking 2 glasses of water before each meal. The study used a sample group of 48 adults with ages between 55 to 75 years. The participants were divided into two groups to compare the weight loss results. Both groups committed to a reduced calorie diet, but one group drank 2 cups of water before every meal, and the other did not. After 12 weeks, the water drinkers’ group showed an increased weight loss of 5 lbs. compared to the other group.

The results that were presented in the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston are considered the first scientific look at the effects of water on the weight lost, providing concrete results to a concept that was known, but not yet scientifically tested before.

Water effect on eating habits weight loss

Another study conducted about water effects on eating habits have shown that drinking 2 cups of water before a meal reduce the amount of calories consumed in the meal by 75-90 calories. Although this study does not offer the exact difference in the weight loss but it points in the direction of one of the reasons behind water’s effect on weight loss.

Water fills up the stomach with zero calorie content leaving less room for food, and promoting a feeling of satiety. When drank before a meal, this reduces the amount of food consumed in meal as the individual’s stomach is already partially filled with water, and has less room for food. Another reason that could lay behind this effect is satisfying thirst with water, leaving less room for sweetened juices and sodas that would otherwise be used to satisfy thirst. Water, being a zero calorie drink spares the drinker to consume extra calories carried by these drinks.
