Here’s something you can do right now to start losing weight today; replace all fluids in your diet with water. That means you have to eliminate pop, juices and alcohol from your diet. Speaking from a personal experience, the most I have ever weighed was 193lbs. However, I was able to lose over 30lbs in about 4 months, and most that weight loss was due to elimination of drinks that contained empty calories, especially alcohol. There are numerous studies prove that sweetened pop and juices are related directly to weight gain. Just Google it if you don’t believe me. Also, by eliminating sweetened drinks you will ultimately cut your calorie count by over 10%. But if you still like to have a flavored drink once in a while, go for the juice. Choose organic, unsweetened and fresh juices. They do have sugars, but those sugars are natural and slightly healthier. Remember to consume it in moderation.
But let’s be realistic. It requires great discipline and motivation to completely eliminate all pop, juice and alcohol from your diet. If you do chose to consume any of them, please be aware of what you’re taking in and how much.
