A simple weight lost trick

AARP claims a new study has been found where middle to older age adults that drink about 2 glasses of water before each meal will lose 30% more weight than those who didn’t. Interesting! This only works for people who are middle aged or older, because younger people need to urinate more frequently. For the older generation, it takes more time for the stomach to empty; therefore they would feel full for a further period of time.  

This study was conducted at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg where they assigned 48 overweight /obese men and women between the ages of 55-75 into two groups.  Both groups were on the same diet, but one group had to drink two 8-ounce cups of water before every meal. The results showed that after 12 weeks, the group that had to drink the glasses of water shed on average 15.5 pounds. On the other hand, the null group lost  11 pounds on average.

Professional Medical Corp also want to remind readers that eating healthy and excerising are  key factors in losing weight!
