In brief: It can help

Extra fluids can reduce appetite in some people and i like your idea of cutting out all sodas.
Look into a comprehensive plan..The simple ones with this trick or that supplement tend not to work in the long run.

In brief: The

The key to successful weight loss is burning more calories than you consume.
Therefore if you eat a well balanced diet low in calories and participate in an exercise routine you should lose weight. If you are unsure of how to do this or how many calories a day you should be eating, consult a nutritionist or registered dietician for guidance. As far as water is concerned, if you drink enough you will ultimately start to urinate more thus losing weight in the form of water. This can be dangerous, and is not considered a true weight loss. Cutting back or eliminating soda will definitely help since it is packed with calories and sugar that makes you crave even more sugary foods. If you can remember the basic principle of burning more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. Good luck.
