While there’s no running away from exercising regularly and eating healthily to stay lean, if you’re looking to lose those last five pounds fast, Bella Hadid’s nutritionist has got a solution for you.
According to Dr. Charles Passler, whose A-list clients include Bella Hadid and Adriana Lima, the easiest method to shedding pounds fast is to drink more water.
“Start consuming half your pound weight in ounces of water daily, and in two to three weeks, you’ll drop that extra water weight.”
That means, if you weigh 120 pounds, start consuming 60 ounces or the equivalent of about 8 glasses of water daily to adequately hydrate yourself.

Apparently, the science behind drinking more water to lose weight is not new.
Firstly, by consuming more fluids, you’ll be replacing the water lost in your body and thus, preventing your body from retaining extra water. This is because dehydration causes your body to store extra water and to absorb water from stools, resulting in constipation and bloating.
Secondly, staying hydrated prevents you from consuming more food. This is because dehydration deceives you into eating when your body requires water instead. Hence, staying hydrated is important for keeping water weight and general weight, off.

Finally, to boost your efforts, avoid salt which cause you to retain more water and excessive carbohydrate intake.
“Consuming a meal or snack that only contains carbs will create a jolt of insulin production in your body that will create body fat at unbelievable speeds,” says Dr. Passler.
So, drink up and stick to a healthy diet loaded with healthy proteins and fats for two weeks to embrace a lighter you.
