If you drink enough water consistently, your body will finally get rid of the extra water weight it may be storing around your hips, thighs and belly. Every pound counts!
If plain water is too ho-hum for your palate, jazz it up with a twist of lemon or lime. Also choose foods with high water content, such as lettuce, watermelon, broccoli, grapefruit, carrots and yogurt.
