Head-to-Toe Hydration Benefits

Drop extra pounds

Water works for weight loss, too. It helps increase satiety and also seems to slightly rev metabolism. One study found that people who drank an extra 16.9 ounces of water (a little more than 2 cups) before each meal for two months enjoyed significant drops in body weight and body fat. Sipping a calorie-free drink can distract you from mindless munching and also helps prevent you from confusing thirst for hunger. Don’t skip a sip if you’re looking to slim down or maintain your weight.
