1. Drink Lots and Lots of Water

15 Healthy Hacks for Losing Weight

I think we've all heard this before. But why?

"Simply drinking two glasses of water (around half a liter) prior to meals can make you think you are fuller and reduce your meal portions. Water can also help you digest. In fact, the average woman eats around 2,000 calories a day, but when she consumes water first, that number drops to around 1,200 calories. Similar decreased calorie consumption was seen in men as well."

So you say 15 ways to lose weight but only show 5 and redirect us to the other 10?

It says click through to all 15. These are just his 5 favorite.

What does the title say? If you are looking through the WonderHowTo and see the title "15 Healthy Hacks for Losing Weight" What do you think? 15 tips right? When you click the article it says "Oh yeah, here's 5. If you want the rest you have to go to an external website."

That first tip is unhealthy. The average woman is suppose to eat 2000 calories each day for health, energy, and weight loss. Eating to little will actually make you gain weight because your body will start to hold on to the calories.

Meh, most diet "secrets" are BS anyway. All you need is to eat less junk food, exercise more, and have a strong will.

not if you follow step 3!!
