Consuming water before a meal reduces calorie intake in middle-aged and older adults, however, this does not seem to be the case with younger adults according to the researchers who conducted a weight loss study in middle-aged and older adults.
“[A] reduction in meal [ calorie intake ] following water ingestion has not been observed in studies of young adults, suggesting there may be age-related differences in the ability of water to acutely reduce [ calorie intake ],” the authors of the study note.
