I'm making an effort to drink more water this week. I measured eight ounces into a glass so I'd know that I was getting the correct amount.
My new rule is that I drink a full eight ounces of water before I eat anything. I've been doing it for three days now and I can tell that it's really helping me not to snack when I walk through the kitchen.
I'll keep you posted on how it works out for me as far as weight loss goes. I will say that you can't stray far from a bathroom with this plan.
Ah yes, the bathroom breaks.... I started increasing my water intake at work (great especially b/c I have unlimited filtered water available) and the bathroom breaks get me out of my seat, whether I want to or not, lol. So in turn that helps keep circulation going in my legs. I have found it's helped with my appetite also, however I haven't tried drinking before the meal. I'll be giving that a shot. Great tip! :)
