Quick question....
Has anyone successfully lost weight through swimming alongside calorie counting?
Can't do normal exercise due to a knee injury.

I think it depends what stroke you do. It's easy to float along doing lazy breast stroke and not really raise your heart rate but if you do a lot of front crawl I'm sure that would help. Most weight loss is diet related anyway.
