January 9, 2012Today’s 10,000 Pound Challenge Tip: Sip 2 glasses of water before lunch and dinner.
Guzzling water just before mealtime helps fill you up with liquid volume—so you wind up eating less food during the meal. In one study, dieters who drank two glasses (16 ounces) of H2O before meals consumed fewer calories at meals than those who didn’t, and lost 44 percent more weight over the course of 12 weeks.
For an added edge, swap out your water glasses for two mugs of green tea. Research shows green tea may be even more effective than water at curbing appetite at meals, and, as an added bonus, it gives your metabolism a slight boost.
