Whittle Your Waist with Water

Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day, advises Diane Hendericks, registered dietitian in Oakhurst, NJ. Why? "Your body retains water when you’re dehydrated, so staying hydrated prevents you from looking puffy and bloated,” she says. Bonus: Water may also help you make smarter food choices. Researchers at Queens College of the City University of New York recently found that people who drink more plain water, as opposed to beverages that contain water, like coffee, tea, juice and soda, scarf down more figure-friendly fiber and consume less waist-widening sugar and “calorie-dense” foods than those who opt for flavored drinks.
