If you are trying to lose weight,there is one simple change that can make a huge difference…-Stop drinking Soda or carbonated drinks. Flavored drinks, sugar sweetened beverages, fruit juices, sweetened infusions, alcoholic drinks, soda, and so many others, are what we so often drink to accompany our food, as well as a source of hydration to beat the heat, and to prevent dehydration. But do we really know how and why these drinks affect us so much?
Sweetened soda and other high-calorie drinks can add inches to your waistline if you drink them on a regular basis. They are also another principal cause of obesity. Any soft drink contains added sugars, which normally come from the cheapest and lowest quality genetically modified corn syrup. They also receive a noticeable glucose injection in order to create addiction, causing extremely elevated levels of sugar sweetener.Not only do they add harmful artificial sweeteners, but they also create excessive sodium in the body, which causes water retention. This does absolutely no good for our weight, and is also puts a lot of stress on the kidneys and liver, if drank regularly.
Fruit juice(s) is another high-calorie drink that may cause problems. Juice provides calories that come from natural sugars found in fruit, but fruit juice doesn’t provide as many health benefits as eating whole fruit. In some cases, a glass of juice provides just as many calories as soda.
There is nothing healthier, tastier, or that provides more energy than a rich, natural fruit juice. It’s even better if it is organic, and hasn’t been treated with chemicals or industrial pesticides. If you decide to buy these types of juices, make sure they have the organic seal that guarantees to maintain all its properties throughout harvest, extraction, and storage.
Industrial juices not only retain very little fruit, but are also made with flavor additives, and unhealthy coloring agents. They can also contain low quality added sugars. For all these reasons, it is best to do your own juicing at home, with the highest quality of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Alcohol and obesity go hand-in-hand for so many reasons. In the first place, they are huge sources of calories that our liver has to work extremely hard at processing. Excessive alcohol consumption also damages this organ, and while the liver is burning off our alcohol, it can’t burn the other fats we’ve consumed.
Let’s also talk about how alcohol frequently increases our appetite, rather than satiating it. Our hunger directly converts it into our figure’s worst enemy. Keep in mind as well, that alcohol is considered a mild drug, as it creates sufficient addiction. We have to take great efforts to keep our consumption at a moderate level; a good example is drinking a glass of wine with dinner, or having a glass of beer with friends occasionally.
