The magic weight loss trick ... water?

image via
In high school, my friend Heather swore by drinking a glass of water before all of her meals. She claimed it helped fill her stomach up so she wouldn't over eat. I thought it was a great idea but have never really done this until recently.

FYI Living reminded me of my high school bestie this week when they posted an awesome post about how drinking water is the magic weight loss trick. The suggestion, drink 2 cups of water before each meal

They suggest: follow these tips:
  • Make sure that it is water you’re drinking before the meals. Sodas, sports drinks and juice add calories to your intake and slow or stop you from reaching your goals. Diet drinks are not as good an option as water because some evidence indicates they trick our brain into wanting more sweets and other studies show they might contribute to bone loss.
  • Get a 16-oz. bottle, keep it full and in plain sight. Have it on your office desk, by the refrigerator, or anywhere else where it will remind you to drink before you eat.
  • If you don’t like the taste of water, add a 2 tbsp. of lemon or lime juice to add flavor. If that doesn’t work, you could add a splash of juice; just make sure you are only splashing, not pouring. If you’re a fan of the bubbly, you could try seltzer water instead.
