The Ultimate Diet Food

Water Detox
Water is the ultimate diet food since it contains no calories and satisfies your hunger quickly. Starting every meal with a glass of water is the best way to satisfy your appetite before you eat. It will keep you from eating excess calories at each meal.

Water is also the best way to keep your appetite in check between meals.

Fruits, vegetables, soups, juices, yogurt and other liquid foods all count towards your daily water requirements.

Some Quick Ways to Sneak More Water Into Your Daily Diet

  • Drink a glass of lukewarm water with fresh lemon (and cayenne pepper, if you dare) first thing every morning. 
  • Intersperse your H2O with decaf green tea, which also hydrates.
  • Keep a large water bottle on your desk filled to the top and sip all day. 
  • Carry a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go and refill it throughout the day. 
  • Slice fresh cucumbers, ginger, limes, lemons, or fresh strawberries and toss ‘em into your water for added flavor (and keep a Tupperware container at work, too.) Even better? freeze fruit and use it in place of ice cubes.
  • Add water-rich fruits and vegetables to your diet, such as watermelon (it’s 92 percent water by weight and blended up with some ice makes a tasty snack.) Also try munching on more celery and tomatoes (about 95 percent and 85 percent, respectively), zucchinis (97 percent), eggplant (92 percent) and oranges (87 percent).
  • Try drinking plenty of water between or before meals, not just while you eat. Make a rule for yourself to drink a full glass of water before every meal and at least half of a glass with every snack — it’s an easy reminder to stop and hydrate. Plus, guzzling more liquids helps to curb hunger which can sometimes be disguised as thirst. Stay better hydrated and lose extra pounds while you’re at it!
  • Believe it or not, milk added into a bowl of cereal contains 87 percent water.
  • Drinks like coffee and soda have a diuretic effect and cause the body to eliminate more water than they bring in. So do your body a favor and every time you think about reaching for a Cola, drink some water instead.
  • If you’re a juice, iced tea, or lemonade drinker, dilute half with water—you’ll still get the flavor without all the calories, and you’ll be sneaking in more H2O.
  • If you find yourself going out for cocktails, make sure you always—without fail—drink a full 8-ounce glass of water after every drink. This not only slows the absorption of alcohol, but it aids in preventing dehydration.
  • Naturally, there’s an app for keeping track of daily water intake. Try Waterlogged, which uses reminders and charts, plus it’s free.
