Many ladies limit their water intake because they have the misconception that drinking too much water will cause them to gain weight or look bloated. However, having insufficient water in the body is one of the wrong way to lose weight as it only worsens water retention. This is because the body system will start storing water, thinking that there is now a shortage due to lesser water intake.
Ideally, one should drink about 6 to 8 glasses of water daily*. Besides, drinking a glass of warm water before eating can also help you to lose weight as it will help to fill the stomach and make you feel fuller more quickly*. Water is also an appetite suppressant that reduces your food intake*.
