Swimming?

Is swimming good for weight loss??? I know people who've done it, laps consistently and have lost quite a bit of weight from it. I've been told it gets rid of excessive water in the body as well...no wonder why when we used to have out pool I always had to pee
Thank you!

Re: Swimming?

I can't think of anything better. I have not personally lost weight swimming, but I have dropped 55lbs (32% to 17%bf) from just running and 70lbs (~30% to 12%bf) from just cycling on two different occasions since 2005. (180lbs of weight fluctuation total). I'm positive swimming would prove better results, and be easier on the joints than running.
