Water Bottle

The more water you drink, the more weight you will lose! Keeping a water bottle with you at all times makes you a lot more likely to reach your daily water requirement!

Drinking non-caloric fluids like water before or with a meal can help a dieter feel full sooner. Keep a water bottle on you at all times!
