Calories in sugared beverages (sodas, teas, sports drinks, etc) are often over looked. One 16-ounce soda contains about 200 (empty) calories. Drinking 2.5 regular bottled sodas each day, without changing any other calories or doing more exercise, can mean a 1-pound weight gain each week. If you regularly drink sugared beverages, try cutting back or eliminating completely.
Try alternating high calorie beverages with calorie-free options. My personal favorite is water with fresh squeezed oranges, lemons/limes or LaCroix sparkling water Calorie free and refreshing flavor!
