Flush the System

According to a recent study published in Obesity,┬ádrinking two eight-ounce glasses of water 30 minutes before meals caused participants to drop 44 percent more weight in 12 weeks time than dieting alone. Use this trick, along with a good diet, to feel fuller faster and consume less calories.┬áMost fighters’ instincts, when cutting weight, is to avoid water, but water actually helps flush the system and encourages weight loss.
