Why You May Not Be Losing Those Last 5 Pounds, From Dolvett Quince (VIDEO)

If you're struggling to lose those last 5 pounds, Dolvett Quince, "The Biggest Loser" trainer and author of "The Biggest Loser Bootcamp Program" says that the solution may be as simple as increasing your water intake. If your sodium level is too high, or if you're not drinking enough water, your body could be holding onto that water weight, which is preventing you from dropping those 5 pounds. Drink more water! The more water you drink, the more you flush your body out, and the more hydrated you are, meaning your body will hold onto less water weight.

The Biggest Loser airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC!
