We all know the benefits of water. It helps to flush out toxins and cleanse your body, improves your complexion, boosts your metabolic rate and reduces hangover (if you drink a glass between alcoholic drinks), not to mention dehydration can have a huge impact on your energy levels and impair mood, memory and brain performance.

Another bonus? Drinking water before your meals helps you feel fuller before eating, so you’d be less likely to gorge, says Ronald. That’s killing two birds with one stone, so reach for that glass!

Tip: It’s best to drink water cold, because the body will then use additional energy (calories) to heat the water to body temperature.
