Drink Water before Every Meal & Shave 270 calories!

Drinking two glasses of water before eating may reduce your consumption by 90 calories a meal, report Virginia Tech researchers.

Want other strategies to eat less?

Eating slowly can help you shave 66 calories per meal; chewing gum before you eat can cut another 68 calories.

These ideas are By Emily G. W. Chau @ fitbie.

    I know the water hint works...I will have to try the others, thanks! I tend to eat faster than I should if I am really hungry.

    Great ideas!
I found if I had just finished a cup of tea before dinner I eat less, too.
Of course, then I'm hungry again too soon from not eating enough!
