Drinking Plain Water Reduces Intake Of Calories, Saturated Fat, Sugar, Etc.

April 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study that analyzed dietary data collected from 18,300 adults found that drinking more water – an increase of just one percent from any source – reduced daily caloric intake. Plain water from the tap, a cooler, drinking fountain or bottle reduced energy intake by 68 to 205 calories a day while also reducing consumption of saturated fat, sugar, sodium and cholesterol. The impact of plain water intake on diet was the same no matter the race, ethnicity, education, income or weight. The researchers said their findings might support the replacement of calorie-rich beverages with plain water as a weight control method.
