One study in actually found that people who drank a glass of water before a meal consumed an average of 75 less calories at that meal. 75 calories per meal add up to a significant calorie savings per day!
It is recommended that adults drink eight glasses of water each day. Sounds easy, right? Not for many people.

- Carry an insulated sports bottle with you and fill it up periodically.
