1. Ice cold water
You'll burn an extra 250-to-500 calories a day by drinking 8-to-10 glasses of ice cold water because…
Your body has to burn calories (or fat) in order to heat the ice cold water back up to your body temperature so basically…
You can lose up to 1 lb. a week JUST by drinking ice cold water.
A German study says drinking about 2 extra glasses of water can boost your metabolism by 30% and they figure when you drink about 1.5 liters of water a day you'll lose an extra 5 lbs a year - See more ways water helps you lose weight
2. Fat Free Milk
Milk is high in calcium and calcium can boost weight loss by increasing fat breakdown in fat cells. This doesn't mean you should go out and drink gallons of milk everyday - but adding milk to your diet in moderation can double the rate of fat you lose.
Different studies say different things on milk and weight loss… some say you can lose 30, 50, and one study even said 70% more weight than people who don't include 3-4 servings of dairy (milk) a day.
3. Green Tea
Studies show you can burn 35-to-43% more fat during the day when you drink 3-to-5 cups of green tea
4. Vegetable Juice
Drinking a glass of vegetable juice before your meals may cause you to eat 135 less calories according to a study done at Penn. state university and even if you can't make vegetable juice…
Drinking a couple glasses of water before meals will also make you eat much less so you lose more weight.5. Whey protein
Whey protein helps you release appetite suppressing hormones that curb your cravings.
In a recent study… people drank either whey or casein and 90 minutes later they were allowed to eat freely at a buffet table. The people that drank whey protein ate significantly less calories.
6. Yogurt Based Smoothies
Not only will the thickness of the smoothie kill your appetite but since Yogurt is loaded with calcium just like milk…
Researchers at the University of Tennessee found out that you can lose 61% more fat and 81% more belly fat when adding yogurt to your diet because…
The calcium in yogurt helps you burn fat and it also limits the amount of fat your body can make but…
Try to use the healthier Greek Yogurt in your smoothies along with adding some whey protein and fruit to boost your yogurt smoothies weight loss power!
7. Coconut water
Coconut Water contains more electrolytes than most fruit juices and energy drinks without the extra sugar & artificial flavorings plus…
More Foods you can eat to lose weight…

thanks for such details on weight loss. I am a 32 year old female and I weigh 160 pounds. I have been exercising (light strength training and cardio) for 40 minutes 2-3 times a week for the past few months. I am a vegetarian and try to eat healthy. Still, I haven't lost a single pound. I have to go to a wedding after 4 weeks. Please tell me a quick way to lose at least 5-6 pounds in 4 weeks without any intense workouts.

Amazing website!... I'm a 41 female, 5"3' and I weigh 75kg. I want to lose 10kg over the next 2-3 months. I exercise 3-5times a week doing the intervals and kickboxing and recently combining that with intermittent fasting.
My question is this... how many calories do I need to consume at the barest minimum to lose 1kg a wk minimum?
What about soya milk.
Also what's your take on dieter's teas?

Drinking cold water will not help you lose weight. Heat calories (little c) and food Calories (big C) are two different things. A food Calorie is 1,000 heat calories. So even if it cost your body 1,000 heat calories to warm up a glass of cold water (which it doesn't) you would only burn one food Calorie. To put this in perspective you are supposed to eat around 2,000 Calories a day. That equals about 200,000 heat calories. There is a huge difference. It costs your body a lot less to heat up a glass of cold water than it does to burn off food. This is basic physics. Please get your facts straight before you start spreading rumors.

Can you give some ideas of other drinks besides water that you can drink if you're trying to lead a healthy lifestyle? I read your information about artificial sweetners and diet sodas, so I'm trying to figure out other drinks to add to my diet because since I've done away with artificial sweetners and diet sodas, I am limited to only drinking water. Any suggestions?
July 12, 2013
have you seen the other drinks on this page?
July 14, 2013

Hi Adrian,I am from Mexico. I have a question, what do you think of JAMAICA FLOWER water? (is like a tea, I am not sure, I believe it is called Hibiscus tea in the US). And also what can you recommend to sweeten Green Tea? I really hate the flavor and last night I did a mix of Jamaica Flower with Green tea to reduce the bitter taste but had to sweeten it with Splenda but I really want to stop using this type of sweetener but not sure which sugar is better, I've heard of stevia or brown sugar but I am not sure which is best, here is hard (and expensive) to get Stevia. My intentions are to lose 50 lbs with your methods.
May 07, 2013
I think instead of Jamaican Flower or splenda You can use jaggery , It tastes great

Hi, fellow losers or healthy concious folks, I'm 49, female, 5'0" and weigh around 154 lbs. Been working pretty hard for about a month now to make healthy lifestyle changes and lose about 30 lbs. Dropped all sodas- not even diet, cut out those yummy creamers in coffee, cut out sweets. I started an exercise program 4 weeks ago (4-5) flights of stairs as fast as I can walk 1-3 times a day, seven days a week (trust me, great increase in exercise for me and past habits:) A week ago I began a 1200 calorie, 75 carbs, 80 protein, 17 fiber, diet. Most days doing good except having a hard time getting that much protein in without going over on calories or carbs. Average protein has been around 55g. I'm pretty tired most of the time and can't really tell a difference in scales-- fuctuating between 151 and 154 lbs. What the heck? Oh, drinking a minimum of 64oz. of water and many days 80! Have been checked for thyroid and other nutrient problems everything was fine... LDL high but so was HDL. Anybody have any hope or ideas for me? Wisdom would be appreciated!
April 08, 2013
bad oops! Fluctuating, sorry

Hey Emily. I've been having the exact same problem as you. I lost seven pounds by carrying a 1litter water bottle around and drinking about two bottles a day. (Find the water bottles at Walmart.) I also dance around the house or put on music when i'm cleaning. It gets me pumped and lets me move. Also after a healthy dinner that can contain a small breast of chicken , raw veggies , and some more water I walk up and down the stairs 20 times. (Depending on the size of your stairs and how much you can push yourself to do it.) And also if you try these tips never give up on your exercises because one day of not trying will make you lose and eat all the fatty foods again. And give yourself a day were you can have a few sweets or maybe a soda like Sunday! Good luck. Also you can't lose a lot of weight in 1 week. Better luck next time and if you did it would be very unhealthy.

Hey Did you get good advise to help you ? What is it, I need to lose some of mine !
April 29, 2013
I'm about 15 years old and 5'7. I'm an endomorph so it's super hard for me to lose weight. I'm pretty sure I'm obese because I weigh 260 pounds and I need to get down to 140. In short, I need to lose 120 pounds. That's a lot!! I'm not really in a hurry, but I would like to lose all this weight moderately quickly. At the same time, I don't want to gain all the weight back cause I lost it too fast. I NEED GUIDANCE... and that's where u come in!
Thank you! =)

hi, one the best way to loose weight is to eat less calories than you burn. One pound of fat is 3500 calories. Eat lots of protein to build muscles. The muscles will help you burn fat around your body. Also consume lots of calcium too. Instead of inhaling a giant meal at once, split the meal into its the size of your fist. Wait for an hour or two, then continue your meal. If you eat this way, your stomach wont stretch out. Try your best to avoid sugar. Too much sugar can make your body store everything you eat as fat. If you want to loose weight fast, it won't be healthy to loose more than five pounds in one a week.... good luck!

Hi, first off, thanks for making this site and inspiring people to lose weight. I am 27, a naturally slim 5'7 at around 65 kilos (143lbs) with a hip-heavy, curvy build. I was rather unfit in December, then registered with a gym as I have time to incorporate a daily workout. Have a workout plan from instructor and been doing it for 2-3 weeks.
I hate monitoring what I eat because it makes me feel like when I was 18 and reminds me of my trials with eating disorders. So I'm no good following a strict plan really but I try to eat healthy and the sports is making me feel better. Overall more toned too, BUT - I am not seeing the weight really come off! Or rather, I can see my belly is more toned and I look better but I still weigh the same! What should I do to improve this?
Unfortunately I am no good in guessing what I want to look like in the end or what I want to achieve, but since Dec. 31st I've been able to count alcoholic drinks and cigarettes on one hand! I want to stick with this, I just wanna know can I do anything better?!
I do the fitness regime (10min walk/run - 40min. muscles big to small - 10min run again) at least 3x a week and some courses when I have time. Help me, please.

thanks man! :)

I just had a baby 4 1/2 months ago and it was my third pregnancy, with that I have gained a lot of weight and now I am 100lbs over weight. I am scared because I had gestational diabetes while pregnant and also my knees are starting to become no use anymore. Please help me.
January 13, 2013
I too just had a baby about 3 and 1/2 months ago, my weight was 250 lb the day I went into labor i have been drinking 8-10 glasses of cold water a day and I drink a fruit and spinich shake 3 times a day and a tea of apple cider vinager, turmeric powder, green tea, and organic honey a day. I aslo eat a small amount of any food I eat boiled navy or pinto beans no salt and egg whites, plain tuna in water with tomatoe and corn, or whole grain cherios with skim milk in between my shakes the portion amount should be small, dont over eat. I now weigh 180 but Im not giving up. I feel like the pounds are just falling off. the shake taste like kiwii and the recipe is 2 hand full of baby spinich, 2 bananas, 1 cup of plain non fat yogurt, 1 cup of pineapple chunks, and cup of water. This recipe makes about 3--- 8oz cups, i freeze the rest and defrost an hour before i drink. I also use different fruits so i wont get bord, my fav is papaya. I avoid all white flour including tortillas, breads, pastas, and candies. I stay away from sugars, salt, and only drink water never sodas, coffees, juices, or sport drinks. good luck and be strong your body will get used to the change in your diet. Just dont give up.

sweat is the only way to really burn the fat off your body drink lots of water about 8-0 glasses of water a day join a sport at school, or volunteer at the zoo or a camp for the summer. the key is to stay active and stay off the sodas, juices, candies breads, and pastas. Eat lots of fruits and veggies I know what your thinking veggies gross, but add them slowly to your diet and you will get used to them trust me I hated veggies too. Good luck and remember stay active and sweat is the key to burn fat.
