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 check this theory. The study found that if a patient drank 17 ounces of water, their metabolic rate increased by 30% for 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.

In general, drinking one 8 ounce glass of ice water burns about 8 calories.

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