Yes, replacing junk with water will help you lose weight. Join a gym, work out. Or join a walking/running club. Running sheds lbs faster than anything I can think of. The only other thing is surgery, and it's expensive.

My answer is exercise and diet. Do some and change yours

Hi love138,

I just finshed reading your comments. Soda, any kind, is not good for you.
Diet soda is particularly unhealthy. Most diet sodas have the ingredient
aspartame. Diet sodas also contain a lot of sodium and make you very
thirsty and they made me extra hungry. I stopped drinking sodas altogether.Some juice occasionally is okay. Drinking large amounts of
orange juice has a lot of sugar. Personally, I like to drink some juice at
times. My newest favorite is guava fruit juice. I drink a lot of water though
and it definitely helps with weight loss and helps prevent dehydration.
Try and eat a balanced diet, food from all the food groups. Watch your
portion control. Exercise is also important. Walking is actually one of the
best forms of exercise.. Try not to lose too much weight too quickly. About two pounds per week is a good amount. Good luck to you. Eve :)
