Is it really true that drinking water helps you lose weight?

We’ve all heard before that water helps you lose weight.  But is it really true?

A study in Germany at the showed that after drinking  17 ounces of water, the subjects’ metabolic rate, which is the rate at which calories are burned, increased by 30% for both men and women for the next 30-40 minutes.

Another study found that in a group of overweight women, the women who drank a liter more of water a day, lost 4.4 more pounds in a year.

So drinking water does appear to help weight loss.  But remember, everything in moderation, drinking way too much water (or anything!) can cause problems.
