I will start off immediately by saying this: I need to lose weight. It's no secret. Not to you or to me. However, I have successfully lost a lot of weight in the past. My failure is not in the losing, but in the keeping it off. So I will not try to give you a tip on keeping weight off. You're on your own there. But I can give you a hint on how to lose weight.
I know--you've heard it all before. And then you downed a diet soda because hey--it has zero calories too and it tastes much better (matter of opinion, I say).
I will tell you though, while I was (successfully) dieting, my weight loss was always slowed by diet sodas. They introduce lots of chemicals into your body and for me...made me retain water, thus preventing (or at least slowing) weight loss.
Water doesn't do this. In fact, it helps immensely to pass right through you and take some of that bad stuff with it. Hooray for a cleaner body!
So today's What DOESN'T Work for Me is Diet Sodas when dieting. They just don't do a good job. So suck it up and go with water. I promise you'll be glad you did!
