How can water help weight loss?
Not only will the drink stop dieters from mistaking thirst for hunger, water can help speed up weight loss in other ways.
While sipping on water may seem simple, a number of studies have shown it is an important tool for weight loss.
In a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, a group of men and woman drank 500ml of water and noticed a boost in the metabolism straight away.
In fact, drinking water boosted how many calories they burned by 30 percent for up to 40 minutes.
Another study of overweight women examined the effects of increasing water intake to over one litre a day.
