There is no doubt about the fact that everybody should drink plenty of water. But how can water help you lose weight?

Drinking a glass of water before you eat can help you take in fewer calories since you eat less. Also take a glass of water to the table to drink while you eat, since this can help you eat even less calories.

- Try it Ice Cold
Many people think that they don’t like water, but that might only be because they drink it at room temperature. Ice cold water is often much more appealing, and could help motivate you to choose water over a calorie-filled beverage.
- Use Natural Flavoring
If the ice cold trick doesn’t work for you, try some natural flavoring like lemon or other citrus for a close to no-calorie drink. Otherwise, there are many low-calorie flavorings available that you can buy.

- Eat Your Liquids
Just because you need to take in more water, does not mean you have to get all of it from drinking glasses of water. You can get many of your needed liquids from foods like fruits and veggies. Good choices would be celery, watermelon, or similar foods that are high in liquid and fiber.
- Don’t Drink Too Much
While it is important to drink enough water, it is equally important not to overdo it. If you drink water to the point where you begin to feel sick, you should stop as this might be an indication that you have consumed too much already.
Meal in a Glass
If water doesn’t do the trick in your busy schedule and you need something of more substance, try the Manna Low GI Shake (Strawberry, Chocolate or Caramel). This shake can be taken with water or milk and will keep you satisfied for a long time.
