What are the Effects of Drinking Water on Weight Loss?

Drinking lots of water is commonly espoused in weight loss regimens and is regarded as healthy; however, few systematic studies address this notion.

In 14 healthy, normal-weight subjects (seven men and seven women), we assessed the effect of drinking 500ml of water on energy expenditure and substrate oxidation rates by using whole-room indirect calorimetry.

The effect of water drinking on adipose tissue metabolism was assessed with the microdialysis technique.

Drinking 500ml of water increased metabolic rateby 30%. The increase occurred within 10 minutes and reached a maximum after 30-40 minutes.

The study dealt with 1.5 liters of water.

If this is extrapolated to 1 gallon of water per day, any person can burn an estimated 12.5 pounds worth of fat per year by doing nothing more than adding 1 gallon of water to their diet everyday.

Extend that out even further and it can have an even more dramatic impact.

In men, lipids mainly fueled the increase in metabolic rate.

In women, carbs were mainly used as the energy source glucose was more completely oxidized in women, as evidenced by the increase in carbohydrate oxidation.

Drinking 1 gallon a day would help someone burn 180 calories per day at room temperature. (The study showed higher calorie expenditure as the water as the water was chilled.)

Approximately 60-70% of the water-induced thermogenesis cannot be attributed to the heating of the ingested water.

This is an important and unrecognized component of daily energy expenditure.

If confirmed in other studies, this cost-free intervention may be a useful adjudicative treatment in overweight and obese individuals to attain an increase in energy expenditure.
