1. Avoid liquid calories
Liquid calories don’t really fill you up, so you’re likely to consume more than you need if you regularly indulge in juices or other sugar-sweetened drinks because you’ll be eating solid fare as well. To lose weight, you must burn more calories than you take in, which might sound simple – but sneaky calorific foods, like milkshakes and juices can bump up your daily amount.
One American study found that cutting 100 liquid calories a day resulted in more weight loss at the 6 and 18 months mark than cutting the same amount of solid food, while the biggest weight loss was achieved by eliminating one sugar- sweetened drink a day. When it comes to losing weight and beverages, water is a much better option – but you should make sure to limit your alcohol intake too, as just one glass of wine can contain as many calories as 4 biscuits!
