Weight loss can be achieved by simply drinking water half an hour before meals.
Drinking water half an hour before they ate helped almost half of people tested to lose weight over three months.
The incredible study, carried out by the Department of Human Nutrition, at Virginia Tech University, made the findings.
A group of 48 overweight or obese adults were tested over a 12 week period.
They were split into two, and each group ate a low-calorie diet, but one paired their food with 500 ml water prior to each daily meal.
Those who drank the water lost 2 kg more than those who didn’t drink the water.
The scientists believed this may be down to the water reducing meal energy intake.
What is more, water has numerous other health benefits, including clear skin.
Another way some choose to lose weight is by dropping certain foods from their diets.
A weight loss transformation of 4.5 stone was achieved by a young woman thanks to following one very simple diet plan.
By turning vegetarian and eating more protein she went from 14 stone to a lean 10.
After she vowed to shed the weight she cut all meat from her diet, and now follows a high protein, 95 per cent plant based diet for her lean physique.

One study titled ‘Could capsaicinoids help to support weight management? A systematic review and meta-analysis of energy intake data’.
The report concluded: “Meta-analysis findings suggest that daily consumption of capsaicinoids may contribute to weight management through reductions in energy intake.
“Subsequently, there may be potential for capsaicinoids to be used as long-term, natural weight-loss aids.”
