Will drinking water really help you lose weight? Yes, it certainly will! Read on to find out why it is often a big difference and read on to get strategies for making drinking more water an effortless part of your day.
The next time you’re thinking about having a snack and you know there’s no real reason for you to be having anything to eat, try drinking a glass of water instead. In many cases, your body is actually thirsty rather than hungry and the glass could help tide you over until your next proper meal.
A good strategy for reducing your snacking is to at least resolve to wait half an hour after drinking that water before eating something. If you still feel like having something to eat 30 minutes after drinking it, go ahead and have a snack.
The fact that you’ve waited thirty minutes will also increase the chances of your choosing a more sensible snack as you’re making conscious efforts when eating and that is something that minimises mindless snacking – the most dangerous kind of snacking there is!
