You Will Need
- Place to swim
Understand that water has zero calories
Understand that drinking water fills up the stomach with a substance that has zero calories. It's a great adjunct to a weight loss diet because, if you're full of water, you will not eat as much.
Drink, don't eat
Know that people sometimes eat when they're thirsty instead of drinking. If you don't drink enough water during the day, you may consume calories instead.
Drink water before meals
Drink two 8-ounce glasses of water before meals if you want to lose weight.
Get in the swim
Swim or do water aerobics to aid your weight loss. Even treading water can burn up to 11 calories per minute. But try to avoid really cold water, which can stimulate your appetite.
