Water is known to increase feeling of fullness. Drinking water before meals can also reduce a person’s food intake resulting in weight loss.
Weight loss can also be increased by substituting sugar-sweetened drinks for water. There is no doubt that sugar-sweetened drinks have higher calories and are a major cause of weight gain. Replacing soft drinks and fruit juices with water goes a long way in helping loose weight. Research now shows that for every serve of soft drink a day that was replaced by water, fewer kilograms were gained over the following weeks, months and years.
