    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Soo....yesterday I perused some of the diets that are listed in the boards, just curious. Some looked reasonable, all the pyramid foods were listed. I saw some ridiculous diets that I ever saw.. (i wont mention the diets). It was very comical to me......i had to chuckle to myself.. who on earth would just consist of that. Anyway, one thing I knew already they stress is ...water, water and more water. Ok, I do drink my herbal teas which i love and I was drinking Crystal Lite, which I thought was the same as water. But I was not going to the bathroom with matter how many glasses i had. Started yesterday, I got one of my thermos and put all water with ice cubes. The thermos contains 20 oz of liquid. I filled the bottle 4 times. I had to go to the bathroom several times. Today, same thing....I am hoping that will a good improvement with weight. And the same time, my water out of my tap is darn good. I discovered that one of my sisters visited me in November said to me......your water from the tap tastes great. I just brushed it off. Now I am drinking that great water. I will not overdo the water because i know water intoxication is deadly....that's for sure.

    Some are reasonable, some less so and if you read the whole article you find out that our experts are not so impressed.
