Diet Tip: Drink More Water, Eat Fewer Calories

If you're not one to drink water throughout the day then you may be missing out on some major calorie-cutting benefits. USA Weekend reported on research that found that those who drank around seven cups of water a day ate, on average, 200 fewer calories than those who don't. This could be because your body can mix up the feelings of thirst and hunger, which means you may think you're hungry when you're really just thirsty. So keep a cup nearby and remember to drink up, you just may end up eating less calories that way.

Fit's Tip: If you don't like plain old water, there are tons and tons of low- (or no-) calorie flavored waters out there for you to try. A lemon or lime slice popped in my glass does it for me.
