Rethink Your Drink!

Of course you can drink alcohol and enjoy your large lattes, but first learn about their calories. After you drink your favorite drink, I suggest you watch other calories during the day. If you don’t, then don’t complain if your weight is still the same (or going up). If you are about to lose weight or get in shape, then choose between a glass of wine, chocolate and a late dinner. You cannot have it all. Just set priorities.

Let’s talk about alcohol first…

I suggest you stick to water, tea and black coffee and then occasionally enjoy a glass (or more) of your favorite drink. Juices are more than welcome if they are natural and with no added sugar. Enjoy home-made smoothies and freshly pressed vitamin bombs. Add some lemons and cucumbers to your water. Put some honey in your tea. Try a home-made ice-tea with some fresh mint leaves. Make lemonades without sugar, use maple syrup instead. Avoid artificial sweeteners. If you like soft drinks, I suggest you drink them very rarely and avoid both light and normal versions. They are simply a poison for your body. Choose a sparkling water instead and add some fruit to it. Be smart, save your calories for a chocolate cake or a delicious pizza.

Don’t give up on anything, just be smart about it. Cheers to life! 🙂
