Studies have shown that drinking water can slightly increase your caloric burn n estimrate. The researchers behind one such study at Franz-Volhard Clinical Research Center in Berliate that sipping six extra 8-ounce glasses a day can burn 17,400 more calories (about 2 kilos of fat) per year.
I is for Insulin
The amount of this sugar-regulating hormone you secrete may dictate the diet you should follow. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that high insulin secretors dropped about approx 6kilos on a low-carb diet but only about 3 on a low-fat/higher-carb diet. Look in the mirror: If you store fat in your belly (have an "apple" body shape), you're more likely to secrete excess insulin and benefit from fewer carbs.
