Stop Holiday Weight Gain – Without Dieting

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” like a plate full of cookies, candies and other sugary treats.

But the next thing you know, we’re packing on extra pounds and our pants are getting tighter.

And while you may spend the new year trying to burn off your neighbor’s famous baklava or your sister’s snickerdoodles, you’ll have at least half of those extra pounds forever, according to some new research.

Over time, that can be a serious threat to your health.

But believe it or not, there’s a cheap, easy and refreshing way to avoid the yuletide bulge this year.

And it’s available EVERYWHERE.

So what is this miracle flab-fighter? Plain ol’ water.

And according to many studies, upping your water intake can help you keep off the pounds, especially if you’re older.

You see, science has proven that drinking water before meals is incredibly beneficial for people ages 55 and up who are watching their weight.

For one experiment, participants aged 55 years or older were split into two groups. The first group drank 500 ml of water (about one water bottle) before eating meals, and the second did not drink water.

After a 12-week period, folks who drank the water before meals lost 44 percent more weight than those who didn’t. 

Experts believe this pre-meal water helps you eat less and burn more calories.

This means that simply drinking a couple glasses of refreshing water before eating could reduce your chances of overindulging this holiday season – and could help you burn off those extra pounds.

Of course, this doesn’t give you the greenlight to destroy dessert platters and finish off fruitcakes at will. Instead, it gives you an all-natural, cheap and easy way to help you maintain a healthy weight through the holidays and the rest of the year.

If you really want to get the most out of your drinking water, consider filtering it with a Turapür system. This special system creates molecular hydrogen, a powerful antioxidant, and adds minerals to your water that can help you fight the effects of aging and could boost your energy levels.

Live well,
