Depends on eating: Depends on what you eat. Its certainly a good idea not to have sugar drinks in your diet, however, if you calorie intake from diet is in excess of your daily needs, you may not lose weight at all. Address your calorie needs as well as your fluid requirements and keep active. Activity also helps with weight loss.
