Does drinking water really help you lose weight?

 

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

A study was done to test this theory.   In the study, patients drank 17 ounces of water, then their metabolic rate was checked.  The study found that their metabolic rate increased by 30% over the next 30-40 minutes.

Another study found that in a group of overweight women, the women who drank a liter  or more of water a day lost 4.4 more pounds over a year compared to those who drank less water.

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