In this study, I looked at the effects of water consumption on caloric intake and satiety in young individuals who are not overweight.
The final sample included 15 people (eight women and seven males) with mean ages of 26,4 and 23,5, respectively.
Subjects ate less of a test meal when they drank water first (preload water: 123.3 g vs. waterless: 161.7 g or postload water: 161.7 g, p 0.05) compared to when they drank water thereafter.
Although respondents drank water before eating a test meal, they nevertheless felt fuller than when they ate the same meal without water or after drinking a postload of water.
Although the mechanism of action is uncertain, the discovery that drinking water before meals significantly reduced meal calorie intake in young people implies that doing so may be an effective.
