When researchers interviewed 18,000 people about what they ate over the course of two days, they found that when people drank more water, they consumed fewer calories overall.

It’s not hard to figure out why: Swapping H2O for sweetened drinks results in fewer calories. Drinking water also helps you feel less hungry, so you eat less, the researchers say.

On average, the study participants drank 4.2 cups of water per day. There’s no hard rule for how much water you need to drink to stay hydrated, but in the study, each additional cup corresponded to a lower total calorie intake.
