-Many of us believe that if we drink a glass of water prior to a meal, it will fill up the stomach and make us eat less.

-This is wrong. The water flushes right through.

-When the stomach expands it tells the brain that it is full and we don’t have to eat anymore. When the stomach contracts, it sends signals to the brain saying we need food again and we become hungry.

-The scientists started a experiment.

-They gave one group of people a meal with a glass of water to drink, and one group of people the exact same meal with the exact same amount of water, but put in a blender and served as soup.

-The question was:

-If we can get the water to say in the stomach and not flush straight through, will that make us feel full for longer?

-This was correct.

-The group that was served the meal as soup felt fuller for much longer than the other group.

-In conclusion:

-The water fills up the stomach so we feel fuller with less calories, and stays expanded for longer so we feel full for longer, wich in the end makes us eat less calories in a day 🙂

-So, throw your meal in a blender with some water to fool your stomach, and enjoy! 😀
