The Eat Better Strategy simplifies nutrition, providing you with an actionable and simple 7 step program to eat better. In the New Year, we will combine this guide with some efficient hands-on recommendations in an 8-week virtual workshop...stay tuned.
Your body has a complex system to alert you to eat when hungry and stop you from consuming too much.
Drinking beverages with calories bypasses this control and leads to over-consumption, excess calories and energy overload.
In other words, drinking your calories makes it more likely you will get fat.
Substituting water for calorie-laden drinks not only eliminates the extra calories, studies show Increasing your intake of water can contribute to weight loss via two mechanisms:
Decreased feeding - replacing liquid calories with water leads to a decrease in overall caloric consumption. Being fully hydrated leads to early satiation, that feeling of fullness that decreases your appetite. Many people do not adequately distinguish between hunger and thirst and eat when thirsty.
Increased fat burning - though not completely understood, many animal and human studies show that increased hydration can increase your metabolism by expanding cell volume, fat breakdown, and energy expenditure.
