Many reasons: Drinking water helps at many levels. One we are suppose to be mostly water. The more obese one is, the less water they are and the harder their fat is, which makes it harder to lose. Water helps soften the fat and it becomes easier to lose. Water can fill you up so you won't eat as much. Water is a better hydration than most of the sugary drinks people use.

Hunger vs thirst: Drinking more water may help you realize that you are more thirsty than hungry which would cause you to eat less. It may also fill you up so you don't want to eat as much. Just be careful not to overdo it and deplete your electrolytes which would make you feel fatigued and faint.

Yes!: Especially if drunk before and with a meal. It fills you, and you eat less. Also, there may be some truth that your body must boost metabolism, if you drink "cold, " water. This is controversial, but the first statement is not. However, we all should drink two quarts per day! and it will help a diet. This question is the easiest nutritional support advice i can give!
