The quickest and easiest way of reducing calorie intake is to drink more water. A study of more than 18,000 adults found that increasing daily water consumption by just 1% resulted in the intake of 70 fewer calories, while drinking three extra glasses lowered calorie intake by 205. Decreased sugar consumption was a main reason for the calorie reduction, according to the Journal Of Human Nutrition And Dietetics.

This is seriously good advice.

And...as someone who drinks too much coffee - I am working hard to substitute more water to cut back on my coffee intake.

I tried drinking water, it didn't help. On the contrary, it makes me even hungrier...

If people were simply replacing calorie-laden drinks with water, that would more than account for the lowered calorie intake.

Again what works for one may not for someone else and there are so many studies that claim this or that. I do love my water but it does nothing to cut my appetite.

As if there are still people out there that drink calorie laden drinks. Most people trying to lose weight gave up calorie laden drinks in 1977 and are still fat.

Water doesn't work for me. Drinking too much causes me to get sick and also, I end up in the bathroom constantly. Don't tell me that will go away, it won't.

To me that tells me my body is telling me that I don't need a lot of water. I drink water, my body said, whoops she has too much water... make her get rid of some.

Hello everyone
I would say that water is healthy and we need to drink it at least 0,03l for 1kg your body weight (without workout and no hot sunny day), but as most of people noticed above water doesn't kill the appetite (in a lower calorie diet than low), in a long period of time.. which sometimes causes yoyo effect.
And what is more of someone drinks too much water this may result in lower mineral absorption in the digestive system which causes illnesses (weak immune system).
So as with everything the best is just find a balance between good diet, water and wellbeing

I really dislike the taste of water...that said, I rarely drink my calories so I doubt that drinking a lot of extra water would help my appetite much. I find it very difficult to drink more than I want - "force liquids" - and it seems wrong and unnatural to me. Unless I have a health condition that makes me dehydrated why would I constantly drink more than I want to?

0.3l per kg is only 2 liters a day for me - definitely doable and not at all like those people spouting you have to drink a gallon a day! And keep in mind that the need for liquids also includes all the foods you eat that contain water, which is considerable.

The subject of water intake & wt loss was discussed here a few months ago. Everybody knows that camels can go for a long time without water because they metabolize the fat in their humps, turning it into co2 & h2o. We can do that too, it's just that most of us don't carry 300 lb of extra fat on our backs, so we can't go as long in the desert as a camel.


A lb of fat can be turned into 1/2 liter of water. Maybe staying slightly dehydrated mobilizes fat to produce the water we're missing.


Drinking an extra 1/2L water may help you avoid 300 cal intake of soda pop, but dehydration will make you burn up 4000 cal of fat to replace that 1/2L of water.

Unless you are doing something very strenuous, or in extreme heat, you will get thirsty when you need fluid. Water is best, but any beverage and most foods provide the fluid needed to keep your body running well. When you feel thirsty...drink!
