Research conducted at the Berlin School of Public Health, Charité University Medical Center Berlin, found that overweight adults who drank two cups of water before eating wound up losing around four pounds, or 1.82 kilos, more than those who didn't.

The study was an analysis of 11 original studies and two systematic reviews on water and weight loss.
