Weight Loss Suggestion That Works, Readily Available, and Free

Presenting at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society, scientists identified an effective appetite control agent that is 100% safe, 100% healthy, dirt cheap and requires no prescription – WATER!  In this randomized, controlled intervention trial (the gold standard for proving cause and effect ), study subjects who drank 16 oz of water before each of their three daily meals lost significantly more weight. Compared to the control study subjects who were put on the same low calorie diet without drinking the pre-meal appetizer of water, the water drinkers lost almost 5 pounds more weight over the 12 week study period! Scientists speculate that zero-calorie water’s ability to “fill” the stomach may decrease what we subsequently consume.  Past studies have also shown that drinking water can provide a transient boost in metabolic rate.  Whatever the mechanism – I am sold and currently working on building this simple habit into my daily eating regimen.
