Â WaterWe all know that we should be drinking lots of water each day, yet many of us still fail to do so.
Whether thatâ€™s due to the lack of taste or the frequent trips to the bathroom, your love/hate relationship with water has to end, especially if weight loss is your goal.
Iâ€™ve already discussed the fact that a mere 17 fl oz of water can boost your metabolism by as much as 30% over the course of 90 minutes, but if youâ€™re not convinced yet, hereâ€™s one more reason for you.
Participants in this study who drank approximately 17 fl oz of water before each meal enjoyed a 44% increase in weight loss over the course of 12 weeks!
I donâ€™t know about you, but over 40% weight loss could mean all the difference in shedding those last few unwanted pounds without changing your diet or exercise habits. Iâ€™m all for this one small change.
The key is to drink water throughout the day instead of chugging it all at once before a meal. In fact, Iâ€™d space out your 17 fl oz to about 20 minutes before your meal so youâ€™re not too full to eat and wind up hungry later.
