Does water intake affect weight loss?Posted: May 05 in Favorites, Nutrition, Weight Management Strategies by Dr. Lazarus
It has long been debated whether or not there is scientific validity that we should each drink at least 64 oz of water per day. In a very interesting study published in Obesity, February 2010, weight loss subjects were each given a low-calorie diet. One group was asked to drink an additional 16 ounces of water with each meal, the other was not. In the group drinking additional water, 44% more weight was lost over the 12 week study period than the group not asked to drink extra water.
So, what does this mean? Well, with summer approaching, have 16 ounces of water with every meal!
