  • I am losing weight so slowly it's laughable: one pound in a month!! I've been drinking only water, coffee and maybe 2 c of fat free almond milk for years, and exercise 3-4 times a week 30 minutes or more with at least 35 pounds to lose. I'm 70 now, somewhat disabled, Type 1 diabetes yada, yada. Keep goin'? You betcha. - 5/8/2015 7:31:24 AM

  • I think that it may sound simple, but it is so effective. - 4/8/2015 10:17:35 AM
  • Thank goodness! I'm already trying to do these things! Just need to up my intake of water! Highly motivated now! - 4/4/2015 10:54:28 PM
  • Good tips! Thanks Coach! :-D - 1/28/2015 5:10:52 PM
  • I'm not losing either but it's my intention to keep exercising. As long as there's no gaining....i'm okay with it. - 11/18/2014 2:14:37 PM
  • I am not losing weight anymore either. I have that last 15 lbs. to get off. HELP!!!!!!!!! - 11/1/2014 9:16:39 PM
  • A good tip for beginners. I have pretty much eliminated all beverages other than water, coffee and iced tea (no milk or sugar) and walk between 4-5 miles a day. I am not losing weight anymore. I am within 10 pounds of my goal weight and have been here for ages. - 10/7/2014 4:54:37 PM
  • Although this is a good tip, it does not work for everyone. I have changed out all drinks to water and workout at a minum of 30 minutes per day. In addition, I limit between meal snack to something healthy. Unfortunately, even doing this, I have not been able to loose any weight. Even though I am not loosing weight at this time, my clothes are much looser due to the exercising. Even if I am not loosing weight, I will not go back to drinking calories as I like water much better. - 9/26/2014 8:16:30 PM
  • It works for me. When I do my 10 mins a day and only drink water I DO lose 1 # a week !! (but I don't do it everyday like I should) : ( - 9/25/2014 3:07:42 PM
  • Of course if you already exercise an hour a day and don't drink soda, this won't work for you.

    But if you are mostly sedentary (and come on, any advice telling people to walk 10 minutes a day is obviously aimed at someone who is sedentary) and you do drink sugary drinks (say a 20 oz per day, which is 240 calories, after seven days you've consumed almost 1700 calories which is half a pound) - this *does* work. I should know. Cutting out sugary soda and exercise 15 minutes a day is what I've changed so far. I've lost 20 pounds over 4 months, so about a pound a week is right. Sometimes baby steps help. After all, it's about making changes you can live with the rest of your life. - 9/25/2014 11:45:06 AM
  • For people JUST STARTING--this WILL make a difference. If you have been working out and staying away from empty liquid calories, not so much. BUT--it gives hope to the newbies so let it be! - 9/25/2014 11:38:37 AM
  • FYI to you critics, if it doesn't apply to you,don't do it! It's not like it took you 5 minutes to decide! - 9/25/2014 10:29:54 AM
