I recently started a diet. To keep me motivated I’m not calling it a diet…rather, it’s an eating healthy lifestyle. I like feel-good phrases.
One of this first things I did to kick-off my healthy eating was give-up sugary beverages. According to this article by Men’s Heath, nearly one-quarter of the average American’s daily calories are consumed in liquids. I would much rather EAT my calories than drink them, thank-you-very-much.
Here’s the list of the top 20 drinks to avoid at all costs if you’re trying to lose weight. There are also tips on what to drink instead. For example a 20 ounce Minute Maid Lemonade has 67 grams of sugar and 250 calories! If you switch to Crystal Light lemonade you’d save 240 calories.
What are your favorite healthy beverages?
