Dieting? Drinking More Water May Help

One study found drinking more water may help people lose weight when included in a weight-loss program

The weight of water

Many people have heard of drinking plenty of water as a common weight-loss strategy. But what's the reasoning behind it? It may be that people who choose water over other types of beverages such as sugary drinks may be sparing calories and avoiding weight gain. Or, drinking a lot of water may help a person feel full and less hungry, which makes them eat less. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the results of one study found drinking more water may help people lose weight when included in a weight-loss program. Based on their review of limited evidence, the study authors concluded that "Studies of individuals dieting for weight loss or maintenance suggest a weight-reducing effect of increased water consumption."

Balance out

Losing or maintaining a healthy weight requires action in several lifestyle behaviors, including eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and avoiding sedentary activities such as watching the television or sitting at the computer for too many hours.

Ease into it

If you are overweight or wanting to maintain a healthy weight, talk with a doctor or healthcare professional about options for optimizing your weight and, ultimately, your health.
