Lose 15.5 pounds

Monday, November 29, 2010

Another reason to drink your water! I just read about a study from Virginia Tech University in Prevention Magazine that said, "15.5 = the number of pounds that dieters lost over 3 months when they drank 2 cups of water BEFORE meals, a 44% increase in weight loss, compared with those who didn't. Kicking off a meal with water shrinks your appetite, so you consume fewer calorie, say researchers."

    With information like that, I wonder why I continue to resist increasing my water intake.
