How can I lose weight by drinking water?


To lose weight, I tend to drink a lot of water everyday, especially before meals to control the amount of calories I take in . Is this effective? (Linh, 29, Hanoi)

Answer:

The way you drink water plays an important role but is not the only factor in weight loss.

However, every system in our body needs water to process, so providing the body with enough water and drinking water correctly is beneficial for your health.

Drinking water before meals helps you control the intake of calories and thus control your weight. It is advised to drink water an hour before eating to “trick” the brain into sending the stomach a feeling of content while you have your meals.

In addition, the amount of water you take in your body correlates with the speed of your metabolism process and the efficiency of lipid degradation in your body, which helps you lose weight in the long run.

There is no fixed recommended amount of water intake for one who wants to lose weight. On average, a man should drink 3.7 liters of water while a woman should drink 2.7 liters a day, including pure water and water contained in food. The figures can change depending on specific weather and exercise conditions as well.

It is advised to bring a bottle with you so that you can conveniently drink water whenever you want. It may serve as a reminder of drinking water for you as well.
