How Can I Lose Weight? 4 Secrets of Skinny People
Skinny Secret 2: Eat Water Filled Foods
Foods with a high water content—think soups, salads, cucumbers and watermelon—help you feel full and satisfied on fewer calories. (Interestingly, drinking water alongside foods doesn’t have the same effect.) Starting your meal with a broth-based soup or salad (not drenched in dressing) may help you eat less of your main course. A recent weight-loss trial showed that dieters who drank 2 cups of water before eating lost more weight than those who didn’t (look for more details in an upcoming story in EatingWell Magazine).
