I agree with the drinking water tip - not just before meals but throughout the day. Several years ago I lost a great deal of weight - lots, the sort of loss that gets your picture in magazines - (ok, so I've put some of it back, but nothing like as much as I lost - drink water throughout the day - it keeps you full and stops you feeling hungry, and also improves the flushing through of toxins that accumulate when you're losing weight and your skin and eyes will look amazing.
Also, did you know that the 'trigger' that says you're hungry is the same one that says you're thirsty, so if you feel hungry drink a pint of water and then see if you still feel hungry
Also one of the downsides of losing weight is the slowing down of 'digestive transit' as they say on the telly. Drink lots of water and it'll keep you 'going easily'.
Some people say they can't drink lots of water - drink it from a bttle rather than a glass - it goes down much more easily - ask any baby
How much water? I drink between three and four litres a day, every day And no, I don't spend my life in the loo - your body adjusts and absorbs the water rather than sending it straight to your bladder
