You’ve heard the age-old saying: “sometimes when you think you’re hungry you’re actually just thirsty.” Turns out, drinking water for weight loss isn’t just a myth.
A recent study in the journal Obesity found that obese adults who drank about 16 oz of water 30 minutes before their main meals experienced moderate weight loss compared to a group who didn’t drink before their meal. Why? For one, water starts filling you up and might help reduce your appetite. Second, another study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that that drinking about 17 oz of water increases metabolic rate by 30 percent in healthy men and women, and that this metabolic surge reached a maximum 30 to 40 minutes after drinking. Chug a few glasses of water 30 minutes before your meal, and you’re prepping your metabolism to rev just in time for food consumption.
You won’t drop 5 pounds in a day, but research suggests it’s effective for long-term, moderate weight loss by helping to curb appetite and boost metabolism. Plus, there’s no downside—it’ll help you get your fill of water for the day, which has been linked to a slew of other health benefits beyond weight loss.
