4 More Drinking Habits to Avoid For Fast Weight Loss - Drtohelp.com
Review four more drinking habits to abstain from to help your fast weight loss efforts with Phentermine 37.5mg. What you drink makes just as big a difference as what you eat.
Drinking Fruit Juice
Stick to real fruit instead of the juices.
“Most conventional juices are loaded with sugar,” says Angela Houlie, MS, RDN, CDN, founder and owner of My Fruitful Body Nutrition, PLLC. “Excess sugar the body does not immediately use for energy is stored as fat in the body, contributing to unwanted weight gain.”
How often you drink alcohol has a huge effect on your weight loss efforts.
“Having two drinks per night can add anywhere from 200 to 500-plus calories to your day depending on the type of drink,” says Sarah Williams, MS, RD. She suggests drinking dry wines, seltzers, and light beers, and doing so on an infrequent basis.
Make smoothies yourself instead of buying them in cafes and juice bars.
“Smoothies made with several fruits and without a protein source can be high in calories and leave you feeling hungry,” says Williams. “If making smoothies at home, make sure to include a protein source like Greek yogurt, kefir, or protein powder to create a balanced smoothie that will help you feel satisfied and stay full longer.”
Not Drinking Enough Water
Sufficient hydration is a weight loss key.
“Drink more water!” says Zoë Schroeder, MS, RDN, CSCS. “Most of my clients start out not drinking enough water and it truly makes such a difference for energy levels, hunger, and performance in the gym. Replacing most of your beverages, specifically soda, energy drinks, sweetened iced tea, lemonade, fruit juice, etc., with water will drastically improve your weight loss!”
