Forget cramming in your eight a day, diet researchers have found that drinking two glasses of water before each meal time could really pay off at the scales.
A study has revealed how participants in a 12-week calorie-controlled study who drank two cups of water before each meal lost - on average - 5 pounds more than those who followed the identical diet without the water.
While diet experts have asked us to drink more water as part of our diet plans, this is the first time it's been clinically proven to increase weight loss.
I have to confess that I drink very little water - preferring cups of tea and pepsi max. With these results in mind, I'm going to try to change introduce 2 glasses of water at breakfast time this week and roll it out slowly over the next month.
Weigh in tomorrow, so it makes sense to begin my own personal 'study' then.
