What to drink

Drinking is a powerful tool in your weight-loss arsenal. Studies show that those who drink more water have less body fat than those who remain dehydrated, and there are many reasons for this.

• Water makes you feel full. One study by scientists in Virginia proved that those who drank a couple of glasses of water before their meals ate a lot less than those who had not tanked up – up to five pounds less over a three-month period.2 This is probably due to the fact that the stomach is full of calorie-free water! So drink lots, drink often, as it keeps you feeling full.

• Energy levels. It takes only a 5 per cent reduction in hydration levels to give you a whopping 50 per cent reduction in energy levels! Many people misinterpret the low energy levels as low blood sugar and decide it is time for a snack. Keep your energy levels up by staying hydrated.

• Energy release. Although there is no firm evidence, some experts believe that when you are fully hydrated, it is easier to release fat stores and that a dehydrated body goes into a conservation mode that prevents any fat loss.

• A taste of the cold. Yes, it is only a small thing, but imagine how it adds up over a few years. If you drink cold water with ice, your body has to use energy to warm you up. This burns calories and thus fat. If you can go for the cool option, have ice and lemon with your water and watch your fat melt with the ice cubes.
