2. Drink Before Eating

No, not an apple martini, but water. Research shows that drinking two glasses of water before eating helped people to lose 15.5 pounds during the three month study than those who did not drink water.

This study was presented at the annual conference of the American Chemical Society. Taking quick breaks throughout your day to rehydrate can keep that metabolism burning strong.
