Sipping water at meals helps you eat less – and can also encourage you to reach for veggies instead of fries. In a study in the journal Appetite, kids who drank water with their food ate 26 percent more vegetables than those who sipped fruit punch. Adults likely do the same thing. When we drink water, which we don’t associate with any particular food, we’re more likely to load up on veggies. Source: First for women.
