Whether you’re trying to lose weight, maintain weight loss or adopt a healthier lifestyle, watching your beverages is a must. Because it doesn’t involve sitting down at a table or chewing, most of us don’t pay much attention to the liquids we pour into our bodies, but we should! Take a look at ten of the worst offenders:
- Lemonade – Skip the ready-made lemonades and make your own minus the preservatives and artificial coloring. Opt for either less sugar or try honey to sweeten.
- Sports drinks – The electrolytes are good when you’ve sweating, but most drinks also have a lot of sugar and preservatives you don’t need.
- Energy drinks –You may get an energy burst, but it will be a short-term fix because it’s from an overload of caffeine and sugar.
Based on nutritional value and calories, your best bets for quality beverages include water and herbal teas. Cheers to your health!
