11. Drink Two Glasses Of Water Before Each Meal
Experts have been recommending that we drink a lot of water for a long time but, the amount you should drink in a day varies from 6 to 8 cups or glasses of water a day up to 15 cups a day. However, when it comes to how much you should drink before meals is a little clearer.
A recent study from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, showed that drinking two cups of water before each meal caused the participants an average of 5 pounds more weight over a 12-week calorie-controlled diet. It also discovered that middle-aged and older people consumed between 75 and 90 fewer calories per meal by drinking two cups of water before each meal.
