Will Drinking More Water Help Me Lose Weight?
Will Drinking More Water Help Me Lose Weight?



It's possible that drinking more water will help you lose weight, especially if you replace sweetened high-calorie beverages or alcoholic beverages with plain or carbonated water. That is, of course, as long as you don't add more high-calorie foods to your diet. Weight management always comes down to calories you take in verses the calories you burn. Drinking water doesn't change that. But don't give up your bottle of water just yet.

Population studies suggest that people who drink more water tend to consume fewer calories. That doesn't mean drinking water directly causes you to lose weight, although some experts believe water consumption may affect metabolism. It's possible that people who drink more water may also be more health-conscious in general, so the water itself could have nothing to do physiologically with the metabolic changes. Some experts believe that feeling hungry may sometimes be an indicator that you need more water. I'm not sure if that's true, but drinking water instead of eating a snack will reduce the calories you consume.

Increasing your water intake before meals may help you watch your weight because it takes up space in your stomach. This may help you reduce the amount of food you consume during a meal -- at least if you're middle age or older; studies don't indicate that young people who drink water before a meal tend to eat less.

You don't have to drink plain water to avoid extra calories; there are other zero-calorie beverages available. You can drink coffee, tea or herbal tea, but remember that adding milk, cream or sugar will add calories. Note -- we used to think of caffeinated beverages as being diuretics (resulting in fluid loss) but studies show they provide plenty of water in spite of the caffeine.
