8. Depends.
A pound of fat is 3500 calories. If that cocoa was an excess of 3500 calories over your normal intake, you'll gain a pound. Otherwise, I doubt you'll even notice it. If you are that worried about it, go take a walk for a half hour. That should burn most of it off, unless you drank a gallon of the stuff.

11. It shouldn't be terribly much unless you drank a ton of it.
When I get the urge, I make my own with skim milk, good unsweetened cocoa powder and splenda. Once warmed up, whip it a bit to create a froth and voila - very little caloric harm to you and your good dietary intentions.

Cocoa cheers! :toast:

12. the best way to lose weight is try to gain weight!
I bought that muscle gain from Weider. Soon I was so sick from the shakes and stepping on the scale that I lost my appetite and dropped 20 pounds and was kicked off the football team for being too skinny.

14. I need to be concerned with loosing weight because my weight could cause
serious health issues in the near future. I'm just glad I've found a diet that works with my lifestyle and it easy to follow.

15. it's "losing", not "loosing"
and being concerned with health issues is one thing; obsessing is another

I got it wrong. My bad. :hi:

18. Loose weight is extremely dangerous.
It keeps shifting around.
Messes up your center of gravity.

19. I wouldn't worry about it
I've lost 70 pounds over the last year, and that's with the occasional bowl of ice-cream or cheeseburger. My weight loss philosophy is that you have to treat yourself once in a while, or you'll go crazy. Seems to work for me, anyway.
