Can drinking water help me lose weight?

Can drinking water help me lose weight?

Yes. Drinking water can help you lose weight for three reasons.

  1. Water has 0 calories and can help you lose weight if it replaces other beverages that are high in calories and/or sugar.
  2. Drinking water throughout the day and during meals can help you control your food intake by keeping you satisfied or full.
  3. Staying hydrated can increase your motivation and ability to exercise.

If you’re dehydrated, the same exercise will feel harder than if you were hydrated. The harder the exercise feels, the less likely you are to continue which means burning fewer calories than if you were hydrated.
