Water can be the potential secret weapon in the fight against the ever-burgeoning waistline, finds a study.

According to researchers, drinking water which contains no carbohydrates, fat or protein — key factors for obesity — may help avoid overeating and thus lead to a healthier weight.

“Staying hydrated is good for you no matter what, and our study suggests it may also be linked to maintaining a healthy weight,” said lead author Tammy Chang, Assistant Professor at University of Michigan, in the US.

“Our findings suggest that hydration may deserve more attention when thinking about addressing obesity on a population level,” Chang added.

The findings showed that people who are obese and have a higher body mass index (BMI) are more likely to be inadequately hydrated.
