Dehydration and Weight Gain

Staying hydrated throughout the holidays could be the #1 way to prevent weight gain.

Holiday foods are full of fat, salt and sugar; all of which contribute to dehydration. Eat too many of these foods and you may confuse your thirst for hunger which could lead to additional overeating.

  • Staying hydrated will keep you from eating when you are actually thirsty
  • Staying hydrated will keep you satiated between meals, preventing the snack attack
  • Drinking 1-2 glasses of water before you eat will make you feel full faster
  • Water flushes fat from your body
