In order to maximize your weight loss, when you sit down to eat a meal, do you ever think, “What should I eat first?” Registered dietitian and co-creator of Beachbody’s 2B Mindset nutrition program Ilana Muhlstein, MS, RDN, has the simple answer.
“Rather than food right away, I recommend that each meal start with drinking water first,” Ilana said. Aim to drink 16 ounces of water before reaching for your first bite of food. To help you remember, when you sit down to eat, make sure you have a big water bottle or two eight-ounce glasses. Ilana said you may find yourself feeling fuller and slimmer in just a few days.
