    Not drinking water is a better way to lose weight. I sipped a half of cup of water over a 24 hour period and lost 2.4 lbs. Hospitals often put patients on restricted liquid intake control. I know someone who lost 60 lbs. in 2 weeks by being limited to 14-oz of liquid intake daily. David Russell
