Water also helps your body metabolize stored fat by helping the kidneys flush out waste. When you don’t drink enough water the liver which works to provide stored fat for energy helps the kidneys eliminate waste and becomes less effective at metabolizing fat.
Drinking water ice cold burns about 62 calories a day. Your body has to work to raise that waters temperature to your body’s temperature. This equals around 430 calories per week.
2. Eat Regularly :

Make sure you fuel your body first thing in the morning to avoid hunger pangs later in the day.
When you eat 3 times a day you tend to eat more in quantities and with stomach-full but
when you eat 5 times a day you will never feel hungry, make sure the total calories consumed are sensible and don’t over eat in any of the meals be selective and try to control your portion size.
