Water definitely does a body good. In one 2010 study, people who drank 2 cups of water before meals lost more weight than those who didn’t. Plus, drinking water can help edge out calories from calorie-laden beverages like juice, soda and even sweetened tea or coffee. Unsweetened tea, coffee and seltzer are all good zero-calorie options to try. Try adding a squeeze of lemon or lime juice to iced tea and seltzer to make them more flavorful.
Find out how much water you should drink each day.

Do This Today: Carry a reusable water bottle with you or pack other calorie-free options (seltzer or unsweetened tea or coffee).

Dinner Tonight: Seared Salmon with Sugar Snap-Fennel Slaw
