A new study has found that people who drink eight glasses of water a day are more likely to be overweight. The study, which was conducted by the University of Connecticut, looked at the relationship between water consumption and body weight in a group of 2,000 adults.

The findings, which were published in the journal Obesity, showed that those who drank the most water were more likely to be overweight or obese than those who drank less. The study also found that those who drank eight or more glasses of water a day were more likely to have a higher body mass index (BMI) than those who drank four or fewer glasses.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Eliza Chakravarty, said that the findings suggest that “water may not be the calorie-free beverage we thought it was.” She added that the findings “support the idea that water intake may be one factor that contributes to weight gain.”

While the study’s findings are certainly interesting, it’s important to keep in mind that they are far from conclusive. The study did not prove that drinking water causes weight gain, and there are many other factors that could contribute to the results.

Still, the findings suggest that if you’re trying to lose weight, you may want to cut back on your water intake. And if you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight, you may want to be careful not to overdo it on the water.
