Drinking Water Alone Does Not Aid Weight Loss

Posted Sep 22 2008 10:07am

Waterbottle2 You've probably seen those multi-colored camping and hiking water bottles on your colleague's desk filled to the brim with drinking water.

A newly released study of 1,000 young women showed that drinking water alone had no affect on a woman's weight loss, according to the science journal Nutrition.

The story out of the U.K.'s Telegraph goes on to say:

"In a study the weight and waistlines of more than 1,000 young women were compared with the amount of water they consumed each day from both food and drink.

Women who ate more water-rich food tended to have a slightly smaller waist size and lower body mass index, meaning they were healthier weights for their heights."

So hydrate or die, but just don't expect to lose any weight just by drinking eight glasses of water per day.
