No matter what diet you prefer, there is one diet that almost anyone can follow and still have success. It requires no major dietary modifications, no supplements or drugs, and probably not much more exercise than would be normally recommended for anyone. It's called "The Water Diet" and it's very simple to follow. All you have to do is drink 3 full 8oz glasses of water with each meal. One before, one during, and one after.
So how does it work? Very simply, it reduces your appetite by filling you up with water. Scientists have known that increasing your intake of water reduces your appetite, and thus reduces your caloric intake because of it.
The other interesting benefit is when you add ice to your water. Drinking ice water actually "burns" more calories than drinking plain room temperature water. When you drink ice water, your body actually has to heat up to melt the water, a process known as thermogenesis, which is what most fat burning supplements attempt to replicate in the body. However, drinking ice water by itself doesn't burn off sufficient calories on its own to warrant labeling it as a sole factor in inducing weight loss.
A local Dallas area man reported his success using this diet plan to news station WFAA and was successful losing 70lbs in 7 months, a remarkable feet. However, this wasn't simply achieved by adding water to his meals, it also included an addition of sensible diet and exercise to the regiment.
So, would this diet work for everyone? Many people complained of frequent trips to the bathroom following this plan, but that would be a small price to pay for losing a good deal of weight. That effect would also be typical of any type of water pills, diuretics, or other types of fat loss supplements. So if you're dieting, there's no harm in giving it a try to help out with extra appetite cravings. See the video below for more information.
