Drink These Healthy Drinks

Some drinks can be a significant source of unnecessary calories and sugar. But there are healthier ways to quench your thirst.

The American Heart Association suggests:

  1. Skip sweet tea in favor of plain, unsweetened tea with a squirt of lemon, some berries or calorie-free sweetener.
  2. Enjoy a glass of club soda with fruit slices for added flavor.
  3. Skip mochas, and opt for a small latte. Ask for nonfat milk instead of whipped cream.

 

Order Meals Early

You are able to cut your calorie intake, especially when you order out meals, by ordering early. A study shows when you order a meal before you are hungry, you order lower calorie meals.

Avoid ordering when your stomach is doing the ordering. You will avoid gaining a spare tire around the waist.
