Drinking water might help some lose weight

August 23, 2010

The study involved two groups of obese men and women ages 55 to 75 who were told to follow a low-fat low calorie diet.

But one group also drank two cups of water before every meal. That group lost 15.5 pounds, compared to 11 pounds for the non-water drinkers, a nearly 30 percent difference.

The research was to be presented Monday at the American Chemical Society in Boston.
