Yes, drinking water can actually help you lose some weight.

Drinking water can help reduce your weight
In a recent study, researchers find that drinking plain water may help people consume less sugar, sodium and saturated fat.

Researchers from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign conducted the study. A national representative sample of 18,311 adults were used.

Researchers recorded the daily diet and plain water consumption in these people and their eating habits and taste preferences.

They found that 1% increase in the proportion of daily plain water in total dietary water consumption was related to a reduction in total daily energy intake of 8.58 kcal, energy intake from sugar-sweetened beverages of 1.43 kcal, total fat intake of 0.21 g, saturated fat intake of 0.07g, sugar intake of 0.74 g, sodium intake of 9.80 mg and cholesterol intake of 0.88 g.

Although the influences of plain water intake on daily diet were similar across race, education, income level and body weight status, the effects were larger in men than in women, and larger in young/middle-aged adults than in older adults.

This research proves that drinking more plain water improves diet quality and can be used as a useful public health strategy for reducing energy intake and prevention of overweight as well as obesity.
