The study* published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, used data from a government health survey of 12,000 Americans , finding that "people who drank more "plain water" tended to eat more fiber, less sugar and fewer calorie-dense foods," as compared to people who got their fluids from other beverages (such as soda, juice, milk, etc.) Did drinking water made them healthier eaters? I can’t answer that, but it does show a relationship between drinking water and healthy diet.
Its true that drinking water in place of higher calorie beverages can help with weight loss and weight management. An easy way to lose over 14 pounds this year could be to replace your daily Coke with lunch, with a glass of water from your MultiPure or other filter system-- add a squeeze of lemon or other natural or commercial flavorings to save 140 calories adding up over time. Drinking water can help you feel fuller throughout the day and is important for increased levels of physical activity.
Drinking more water is a simple goal you can set for yourself—make it a yummy one, chilled, purified and chlorine- free. Staring with such a simple goal can help you build momentum to reach bigger goals when adopting a healthy lifestyle.
