You hardly Eat Anything!
You can even swear you don't eat ANYTHING until 1 pm, sometimes — BUT you still can’t lose weight.
In fact, may be gaining.
Well, you might not be eating excess calories BUT you might be drinking your calories in different forms and shapes instead.
So, if you remove these drinks from your diet, then it's almost guaranteed that you'll start to see a HUGE difference in your waistline... starting from today.
Which drinks? — glad you asked! — here are the...
Bad weight loss drinks:
1. Fruit Juice
What’s so bad about fruit juice eh?— It’s only fruits—right?
Well, actually even the:
so-called "100 percent fruit juice" is packed with up to 36 grams of sugar per cup—or about what you’d get from blending 4 Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts (see picture !)
Most of the sweetness in juice come from fructose, a type of sugar associated with the development of visceral adipose tissue—Yep, that’s a fancy name for belly fat.
So instead of drinking juice just eat the raw fruit.
Calories in the fruit
Calories in Juice version
See what I mean?
As you can clearly see, the juice versions contain almost double the calories of the fruits.
And honestly, I'm not in the mood to rant about this today, so I'll conclude by saying...
If you must drink your fruits, make a fruit smoothie.

2. Energy drinks
Unfortunately, the magic recipe for high energy and weight loss doesn't come in a can.
An average energy drink contains about 100 calories, of which is mostly sugar.
Most times we hardly do enough activity to burn the calories they provide, which can lead to weight gain.
What about sugar-free energy drinks?
Sugar-free energy drinks contain artificial sweeteners – and artificial sweeteners have been associated with weight gain because they cause your brain to crave junk food.
What about the safety of energy drinks??
They’re far from safe because research has shown that they come with a bag of trouble such as Insomnia, headache, Ulcers, Muscle twitching, Anxiety…ETC
If You’re serious about losing weight (or not) energy drinks should be on your “should not drink” list.
3. Soft Drinks
Soft drinks are not so soft on your weight.
It’s can be hard to avoid soft drinks because they're everywhere! (see what I did there?)
However, you'll be doing your body and health a favour by avoiding them, as they add a lot of calories and have very little nutritional value
Now, you might be thinking:
Well, to get my beach body, I’ll just replace soft drinks with their diet versions—right?
New Studies found a link between drinking of diet sodas and a wider waist circumference.
diet soda drinkers have a higher percentage of belly flab than those who don’t sip the beverage, a study in the journal Obesity found.
Yes, booze (sorry). Alcohol is not a weight loss friendly drink, unfortunately. Too much hard alcohol and beer can add fat to your belly.
Alcohol has no real benefit as such to the body because it's full of empty calories.
If you must drink then a glass of wine a day is perfect for your health.
To wrap up, eliminates these drinks as much as possible from your diet, and replace them with water. And I promise you that you'll see a big difference in your weight loss results.
