Believe it or not, beverages can add up too! (Calorie-wise, I mean)
Most beveragesare not calorie-free, especially when it comes to coffees, juices, sportsdrinks, soda, or alcohol. If you don't make a valiant effort , you may find that you could drink an entire day'sworth of calories. The White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks, for example, stands at a whooping 400 calories, which could be anentire meal's worth of calories. Trim calories from liquids by choosing regularcoffee (if coffee is necessary), tea, carbonated or mineral water, natural juices or shakes and water (yes, I know I mentioned it twice).
But what about diet soda or even coke zero (with 'zero calories')? Keep in mind that although these products are marketed as 'diet', they are filled with unnatural substitutions that cause havoc to your system, e.g the addition of aspartame, in place of sugar, which can cause migraine headaches, shortness of breath and abdominal pain, just to name a few.
Sticking to more natural beverages will help you on your path to optimal health, and keep your daily calorie intake within range.
