Well, water may very well be the most underrated nutrient especially when it comes to weight loss. And most often many wonder, could the amount of water people drink really have any link to their weight?
From the article Drink Water, Fight Fat? published in Webmd, a recent study led by Ujue Fresan from the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Barcelona found that drinking a glass of water instead of a beer every day can slash the risk of obesity by 20 percent. Switching one sugar-sweetened soft drink for water every day was associated with a 15 percent lower risk of developing obesity. On the other hand, those who substituted water for beer also had a slight decrease in average weight of 0.7 pounds over four years.
I totally agree with the result of this study. Reducing the intake of sugar from what we eat and drink is highly recommended. In fact, according to most researchers, water has no calories and is to be privileged as the first source of hydration when you want to manage your weight.
Combined with physical workouts and drinking lot of water consistently will ultimately help you towards a healthier you. So stay hydrated no matter what.
