Do you know what’s in your drink? Drink calories do add up and could be preventing you from losing weight. Just by making the change to reduced calorie or calorie free drinks, you lose tons of weight. I had a client I counseled who made the switch from regular soda to diet soda and lost 18 pounds. WOW!
Instead of regular soda, slurp diet and you save 130 – 200 calories per 12-oz. can. If you drink 2-3 cans of soda daily, you could lose 4 pounds within a month.
Small changes add up to BIG rewards. Spring is a good time to give up something, like a food infatuation, such as cookies, ice cream, or chips. Remember calories count and 3500 calories = 1 pound of body fat. Therefore, reducing caloric intake by 250 calories per day can result in a 2-pound weight loss within 1 month. That’s 2 cookies or a bowl of ice cream. You can even try decreasing 500 calories a day, which would be a 1-pound weight loss within 1 week or 4 pounds in 1 month. What can you give up for just 30 days?
