It’s never been easier to consume hundreds of extra calories per day – without eating a single bite of food. The sheer abundance of sodas, sugar-packed coffees, alcoholic beverages and energy drinks is enough to make any sane person want to give up and give in.
Think of all the times you consume liquid calories. Salty popcorn in a movie theater whispers in your ear that it needs an extra large soda to satisfy your thirst. The Grande White Hot Chocolate at Starbucks that you order every lunch. And let’s not even start on the evils of ‘energy’ drinks.
To lose weight you need to ignore these drinks which do nothing but give you way too many calories and spike your blood sugar. Check calorie and sugar content when buying drinks, as they are equally important. Don’t stress out over this, just remember to choose pre-packaged drinks wisely. Remember that you can always make your own smoothie and fruit drinks – they’re sure to be healthier for you.
