Drinking water before eating curbs appetite

Drinking water before a meal appears to curb the appetite, according to researchers at Virginia Tech.

The researchers reported the findings of a study they conducted involving overweight and obese people in the journal of the American Dietetic Association.

The study was discussed recently at a forum on drinking water in Frankfurt. The overweight and obese people, who took part in the study, drank a half litre of water before breakfast. Their calorie intake during breakfast sank by about 75 calories. Over the course of a year, this equals 27,375 calories or the equivalent of three kilogram's of fat.

According to researchers, if they were to drink similar amount of water before each meal, then their calories intake will be reduced dramatically, leading to eventual weight loss in the long run.
