There’s an easy and efficacious way to get slimmer – by increasing the daily intake of water. This was reported by a group of scientists led by Dr. Brenda Davy, Assistant Professor at the Department of Human Nutrition, at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Boston.
The experiments showed that in 12 weeks of low-calorie dieting the participants who drank two cups of water before every meal dropped 5 kg more weight on the average than those who had the same diet but sans water.
Yet drinking too much water can lead to a rare but serious condition known as water intoxication, Dr. Davy warned. Scientist recommend a drinking dose of 9 cups of water for a healthy woman and 13 cups for a healthy man.
