Diet Drinks & Weight Loss
Diet drinks and weight loss seem to go hand in hand, right?
Absolutely not! Here is some helpful advice that you need to listen to.
1. Drink More Diet Drinks, Gain More Weight
There have been studies that show people who drink diet drinks gain more weight. In fact, this study has proved drinking diet drinks is worse than drinking normal drinks!
Just because something has the word “diet” on it does not necessarily mean it is a good choice. Many diet drinks contain aspartame which is used to sweeten the drinks instead of sugar. Well, aspartame may not lead to weight gain, but has been proven that it is WORSE for your body than sugar.
Stay away from diet drinks altogether. They can be pretty deceiving.
2. Don’t Drink Your Calories
So now that I said you should stay away from diet drinks, does that mean you should go crazy with soft drinks?
No way. In fact, you should do your best to NOT drink any calories when trying to lose weight. In other words, drink water and get your entire calorie intake with food.
Drinks go right through you. They very rarely give you that full feeling in your stomach. Even if you have a calorie-rich drink, you will still be eating the same amount of food (thus consuming tons of extra calories).
I am guessing you probably don’t drink enough water anyways, so get used keeping a water bottle close at all times. Water should be your staple drink. It is going to be your new best friend while trying to lose weight.
