An American study has found that drinking just 1 per cent more water can reduce your calories consumption on daily basis. In fact, drinking seven glasses of water every day could help you cut up to 200 calories.
New research, published in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, has found that a few extra glasses of water can increase the feeling of "fullness" and keep you from mindless binging.
During that study, the researchers and scientists looked at the amount of plain water each person drank, as well as other liquids like unsweetened tea and coffee, which contribute to overall water consumption.
On average, the subject consumed for about four and a half glasses of plain water per day, accounting for 30 per cent of their daily dietary water intake.
The study found that the majority of people who increased their intake of plain water by 1 percent between one and three glasses per day reduced their total daily calorie intake by 68 to 205 calories, as well as their consumption of saturated fat, sugar and salt. The study also showed a reduction in sodium intake of 78 to 235g and a reduction in sugar intake of 5 to 18g.
