As we go into the holiday eating season, wouldn't it be nice to have a way to lose weight without spending a ton of money, working out like a maniac or dieting?  The University of Birmingham in England has found a way for you to drop 10 pounds in no time.

Drink a glass of water before you eat a main meal.  They suggest one pint or 16 ounces.  You will feel fuller and eat less.

If you're not a beer-drinker, a pint is 16 ounces.  Which is a big glass of water, but that's kind of the point.  It makes you feel full, so you eat less.

The people in the study who didn't do it only lost about 1.7 pounds.  Everyone was provided a nutritionist, so the playing field was even.  People who drank the water, lost weight.  Conclusion...it WORKS!
