Can drinking more water help you lose weight? Yes, water has many health benefits like helping you boost your metabolism, cleansing your body of waste, and suppressing your appetite.
3 ways to speed up your weight loss with water
- Drink two 8-ounce glasses of water before a meal to help you minimize portions by giving you a sensation of a semi-full stomach.
- Drop sugary drinks for a week and drink more water instead. Your body will adapt to a new habit of drinking more water and you will cut lots of empty calories.
- Do not wait until you are thirsty to drink water. Thirst is a signal that your body is already dehydrated. Dehydration can lower your energy, make you tired, and give you the sensation you are hungry. Always keep your body hydrated.
