Don’t Drink Your Calories!
Considering that people consume on average about 600 of their calories in the form of sweetened beverages, this translates to over two hours of moderate activity just to cancel out what you drank all day.
Therefore, cutting them out of your diet can significantly improve overall health and weight loss goals.
Do this instead:
- Aim for pure clean water, free of sweetners, coloring and other additives.
- Avoid beverages with added sweeteners such as soda, fruit juices, sports recovery drinks, alcohol and all those fancy coffee and teas that are full of hidden sugar.
Why it works:
Liquid forms of sugar are absorbed very quickly, spiking blood glucose and insulin levels, driving sugar into your liver, setting off a cascade of events that results in more food cravings and can increase weight gain.
By avoiding high calorie beverages, your body will have less calories to burn off and you will activate your body’s fat-burning capabilities much quicker.
