WATER & HEART DISEASE

Men who drank 3-4 glasses of water per day were 35% less likely to have a fatal heart attack

Men who drank 3-4 glasses of water per day were 35% less likely to have a fatal heart attack during a 6-year follow-up compared to men who drank less than 2 glasses per day according to The Adventist Health Study.

The reason for this may be that drinking more water reduces blood viscosity according to the paper.

Men who drank 5 or more glasses of fluids other than water per day were roughly 1.5 times more likely to have a fatal heart attack during the 6-year follow-up.

WATER’S EFFECT ON CALORIES BURNED

Drinking cold water increases calories burned; equal to 2.6 lbs per day for children

Drinking roughly 8 ounces of cold water increased resting energy expenditure by 25% over baseline for more than 40 minutes in children who were approximately 10-years-old according to a study from Israel.

"It was previously demonstrated that drinking water significantly elevates the resting energy expenditure (REE) in adults, and that low water intake is associated with obesity and lesser success in weight reduction," the researchers noted.

"Consuming the recommended daily amount of water for children could result in an energy expenditure equivalent to an additional weight loss of about 1.2 kg per year [2.6 pounds per year]," the researchers concluded. Read the entire article | Email this article

Dieters drinking 16 oz of water prior to each meal increase weight loss by 4.4 lbs in 3 months

"Our results indicate that when combined with a hypocaloric diet, consuming 500 ml [ approximately 16 fl oz] of water prior to each of the three main daily meals (1.5 [ liters per day ]) leads to [ approximately 4.4 lbs ] greater weight loss over 12 weeks [ 3 months ] as compared to a hypocaloric diet alone, among middle-aged and older adults," the authors of new study conclude.

LIQUID CALORIES

Women consume 104 more calories at a meal when given cola, orange juice or milk

Women consumed an average of 104 more calories at a meal when they were given a caloric beverage containing 156 calories to drink with the meal of either cola, orange juice or low-fat milk containing 1 percent fat than when they were given a non-caloric beverage of either a diet soda, water or no beverage according to a study by Barbara Rolls and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pennsylvania, USA.

In other words, liquid calories tend not to reduce calorie intake the way that solid food does. This has been shown in numerous other studies as well.

WATER

Drinking water increases calories burned, cuts risk of dying from coronary heart disease by half

"[R]ecently, water drinking was shown to increase energy expenditure," notes a new paper from Germany. "The increase in energy expenditure with water drinking should be recognized as an important confounding variable in metabolic studies and may hold some promise as an adjunctive measure in the prevention or treatment of obesity," they conclude.
